Here’s a new entry for Fix It Friday!

BEFORE

I like that man, but I really don’t want interrupt a man with nothing unless he is interested. I am like if he is interested, why is not he coming up to me? From that day we first met, I heard that he has been given everyone his own facebook address and cell # but not me? Of course I didn’t ask but we are friendly. He even gave it to other co-worker that he met later. That co-worker was not a good friend, I am a better friend ‘cuz I always gave him $ when he asked and joked a lot. Co-worker came abt 2 weeks later after me.
I know he really like me because even thru it seems that he is playing too much, he is playing with his small beard while talking to me and smiling. I know it means a man is thinking. But with him, it is hard to put two things together since he plays too much for a long time! We only working together for two months , none contact, email, or anything unless talking at work. Werid? I know he was trying really hard to not give away his game but I can feel that he is flirting.
Is it some dumb childish flirting or what?

AFTER

I like someone at work, but I really don’t want to bother him unless he is interested. I am like, if he is really interested, then why is he not coming up to me more? From the day we first met, I have heard that he has been connecting with everyone on Facebook and giving out his cell number, but he has not done any of that with me. Of course I didn’t ask why and we are still friendly, but he gave his information to a co-worker that he met about two weeks after me and they are not even good friends. I know I am a better friend because I always give him money when he asks and we joke a lot.

I know he really likes me because he smiles and plays with his beard while talking to me, which means that a man is thinking. But with him, it is hard to put everything together since he plays too much! We have only been working together for two months, but I still have no contact with him besides talking at work. Weird? I know he is trying really hard to not give away his game, but I can feel that he is flirting.

Is this just some dumb childish flirting or what?

This post was a bit difficult to read because of the wording, verb tense, and overall grammar issues. But I think I cleaned it up well.

Ok, I hope this was helpful! If you want to submit something for Fix It Friday, please send it by 5pm on Thursday.

Have a nice weekend ^^.

Spotted at Barrington and… Well, I thought it was Exposition, but now I can’t be sure.

LOOK ALERT: What is wrong with “life in prison”? Even the archaic “sentenced to penal servitude for life” sounds better than “sentenced to life imprisonment”. While the term may be legally correct, it is foreign and jarring to those outside the law.
