The colors of fall: safety orange and safety yellow

September 25, 2007

I got a notice from the power company the other day.  Seems they are installing new gas meters in my neighborhood.  Today was my day.  I wasn’t here when they finished so they left a tag on my door saying I should could call between 7AM and 10PM so they could come out and relight the pilot lights on my water heater and furnace.  

I already know how to start a pilot light but I thought to myself, “bitch, you are missing an opportunity here”.   I could possibly get some hot safety orange/yellow wearing vest guy stopping by my house to “relight my fire”.   So I called the number and left a message(at around  6PM).    Yeah, I know, I’ve seen too many porno movies,  but what the hell, a girl’s gotta dream. 

Well he showed up (around 8PM).  I got part of the story/fantasy  right.  He was very cute (like Matt Dillon in cowboy boots) and he was wearing the vest (swoon).  I escorted him down to the basement.  He told me my furnace was an electric start (duh, I know) and he quickly lit the pilot on my water heater.  I said “That was easy”.  He said “Yup, thanks” and was gone. 

Maybe I need to work on my banter.

    Just remember as you are flirting to not cross the line. A rufie in a lite beer makes the baby Jesus cry.
