So lastnight I was helping someone lay a ceramic tile floor in their house. I don’t even know whose house it was but it didn’t really matter much once Toby Keith & his band showed up and started a fun little jam session. There weren’t many people there, but word got around fast that Toby was there so the room filled up pretty quickly, as you can imagine.
After they played a couple of songs, people started clearing out and those of us there working on the house stuck around to get back to work. I was finishing up cutting some tiles to go around the edges and doorways when Toby came over and we started yackin’. He decided that he was going to finish up those edges so we went around and measured the cuts and got the tiles ready.
He was standing in the dining room and I started asking him questions, like “you’ve got two little girls, right?” and he said “yeah” with a silly grin on his face, such a proud daddy. Then I asked if he’s been married for 5 years? He shook his head and I held up my fingers to six, then seven and he nodded. (I have no idea how accurate this information is!) I asked how often he gets to see his girls, and we chatted about him being on the road and not seeing them as much as he’d like to. He was such a nice guy! We really hit it off and became fast buddies, he put his arm around me and we sat down and just talked about all kinds of stuff.
Of course me, I’m singing to myself: “I’m not talkin bout knocking out heaven with whether we’re wrong or we’re right. I’m not talkin bout hooking up and hanging out. I’m just talkin bout tonight.” Which, if you’re unfamiliar with Toby, is one of his songs.
Well? If you’re going to make acquaintance with Toby Keith, a Country Hottie with a voice second in seductiveness only to Tim McGraw, why not flirt a little??
Yes, Tim and I have hung out on several occasions too, mostly at rodeo’s for some reason, where he tries to come on to me with Faith standing right behind us. In all honestly I lost a little respect for him when he was doin’ that right in front of her. Really, Tim. I’m cute and all that, but you really shouldn’t be trying to kiss me in front of your wife. (I smacked him, like any honest girl would.)
I woke up this morning, still humming Toby’s tune in my head. Strange how vivid my dreams are sometimes. I didn’t realized I liked him so much!
