even if i don't necessarily need it, it's always nice to know i still have it

i was dressed in a new minidress yesterday in anticipation of meeting my new (now ex) party BFF (who really needs a new nickname so i shall now call her the sweet & simple girl 'coz she really is lovely). there are times when a girl dresses for another girl and this was one of them. i hadn't caught up with her face to face in months though our email excanges remained relatively strong.

it started out like any of our other dinner catch ups, with food, conversation and laughs. it was only when we decided to meet her pseudo boyfriend and his friends for a drink did things take a slightly different turn.

i bonded easily with one of his friends's girlfriend and seemed to get along relatively well with him and another of his guy friends as well. it's been a while but that night, i was well on my way to, what i call, my full sparkle mode. i was outgoing and witty, i was the girl with personality, the girl with charisma, and as it was later proven, i was also the girl who still had it.

since the days of ally mcbeal, i've been mildly fascinated by unisex bathrooms. this particular bar was one of the places that had one such bathroom. it also had one of those sinks where you had to step on a pedal to activate the running water.

there was a guy standing there. tall, built, relatively cute, i must admit. he stood there for some time waving his hands under the tap in an attempt to get the water running. unable to help myself, i came to the resuce of the gentleman in distress.

i informed him that he had to step on the pedal. he being cheeky asked me to help him to step on the pedal. i faltered for a minute as i made a joking remark but ultimately helped him. he thanked me as i jokingly made another remark and walked out with the sweet & simple girl giggling behind me.

we sat back down with our group and resumed our conversations over our nearly empty bottles of beer. that was when the waiter came round and set down 2 more fresh bottles stating that it was courteosy of that gentleman.

yes, i still had it, but since a boyfriend was also among the "things" i had, i didn't do much more than smile and say a word of thanks when the gentleman next walked past our table with a smile and his eyes fixed on me.

and i wasn't even wearing high heels.
