Between running clubs, construction and volunteer work - I've been trying to stay occupied until the New Girl gets back.
The thing is - the New Girl trusts me to go to lunch or the movies with other women as long as I have no interest in them as more than being just friends.
Maybe the girl is naive or maybe she trusts me - I don't know.
But the thing is, I'll break things off before I'd cheat.
But this is where the problem arises.
A woman wants to go all Mississippi Masala on me.
She moved here a few years after graduation from B-school to run her parents' string of Churches chicken restaurants.
The woman looks like a Bollywood actress and is really nice so when she asked me out I politely declined.
But one of the elderly women I check on loves the chicken from one of her stores.
When the woman asked if her being Indian was the reason I turned down her offer to dinner, "No, because I might be interested.", is what I replied.
Being that I have a history of trading one girl for the next - maybe it's better that I stand with my current 20 instead of going bust trying to hit Blackjack.
