Back Off Ladies, This One is MINE!!

First, I must tell you about my new found love of the pudding cup.  OMG!! It is the perfect food.  I honestly do not know how people survived taking their lunches to work-school without the pudding cup. Or as I lovingly refer to it as "da puddin' cup".  It's 100 calories (for those who love to count). It comes in all the right flavors (chocolate, white chocolate, and dark chocolate... did I mention it comes in chocolate???, oh yeah and vanilla). Plus the container is recyclable. Ooohh the creamy goodness...

Anyway, the reason I tell you about my new fascination with this wonder of all things pudding is that it has now played a part in my love life as well.....(oh get your mind out of the gutter, this isn't that kind of blog site.) Recently I started seeing someone (We'll call him "New Guy") and because of some geographical issues at first we have had to spend a little more time than usual getting to know each other via the phone.  

During one of our conversations I brought up the greatness that is da puddin' cup and how it is my new favorite munchie.  I must have gone on for hours (ok, it was probably only 15-30 minutes in reality, but for him it must have felt like hours - cause really, how long can you discuss the culinary delights of da puddin' cup?)  Anyway, you are probably asking yourself what does this have to do with my love life and can I really discuss this in a PG rated Blog? Well, hang on to your hats ladies cause this is where it gets good.

New Guy and I go on our first date.  It was great. Everything you could ask for in a first date. Including a very funny and embarrassing moment when the waitress asked if he had just proposed!!! (I'll tell that story later.) We had so much fun we decided to have date number 2 the very next night.  Second date night arrives. Now, occasionally men have been known to bring flowers or chocolates as a nice gift on the second date.  Doesn't always happen, but some men have mamas that raised them right and he brings a little token of his budding affection.  Guess what New Guy brought me???????   DA PUDDIN' CUP!!!!!!  OH YEAH!!! In the delightful chocolate and vanilla swirl pack.  Holy crap, do you know what that means?  He actually listened when I was talking.  Not just that he had the phone to his ear and was making "umms" in all the right spots.  He actually listened to me drool on about da puddin' cup.  OMG!!  Yeah this one's a keeper.  I don't know where this will all lead and I am not one to look a gift pudding cup in the mouth, but color me happy and wish me luck cause this one looks good so far.

I love love, oh he's a keeper alright. How very thoughtful of him. Maybe he's an under cover millionaire matchmaker watcher- yes? (That woman gives the best advice)

That's really awesome! My beau brought me gummi bears (with which I have a similar fascination to your pudding cups) on our first date. Who knew men sometimes listen?!

I love this post. It reminds me of when I first started dating my fiance. I was floored at all the things he noticed and paid attention to ... definitely "keeper" qualities!

Vanessa said...

Yeah keeper! So far so good! And did you know there are 60 calorie pudding cups? Yes, my friend, there is, they are the sugar free ones, come in milk chocolate, dark fudge chocolate, butterscotch, creme de leche, and vanilla. umm, not that I'd know or anything! I think I may need a pudding cup now. ;)

This is the same as opening the car door for you. They all do it at first then it goes by the way side - same thing with the listening. See if he brings them later in the relationship such as on days when you really NEED a pudding cup. But, while you have his ear get in everything important NOW. Have fun and enjoy the relationship. da mama
