|||||Nelson - "Love and Affection" (I'm a child of the 80s. Give me a break!)||]|
Just got done with a conversation with Megan (We're back to the one who I've been pursuing since starting this journal). I worked up the courage to ask her out. Guess what? She said yes!! Now, some of you reading this may be going, "Well, yeah. You've been talking for hours every night, and you've already kissed. What's the big deal?" Well, anyone who's saying that obviously doesn't know me...I've had such incredible bad luck with women, I've been imagining Megan sitting there, thinking to herself, "Okay. How can I let him down easily?" But, even with a couple of stumbling blocks, with which she could have easily used to say, "No, I'm sorry. Can't do it," we've still got a date. It's a very traditional date (other than she's driving...Sigh). A movie and dinner. She's trusting me to pick the location for dinner, with the only caveats being nothing too hot, and nothing raw. So, a nice Italian restaurant shouldn't be too hard to find in the area...She pretty much chose the movie (I gave over half a dozen choices spread across various genres, and she decided from those.), Remember the Titans. Not exactly your typical date movie, I don't think, but should be fun.
So, now I have six days to 1) Find a way home after this date, because I really don't want to ask her for that, and 2) Obsess over various ways to screw this up.
Still moving slowly, relatively speaking. This is just a first date. I still haven't used the word "Love" in front of her, except when referring to my older sibling...There's a funny story. Megan suggested having the winner of the last melee be the person who helps her remove her bodice (remember, we dress up in mideival clothes). Well, my older sibling was running melee, and before actually starting, went around and whispered something to each of the other contestants. When she reached me, she just said, "Relax, and win." and smiled. Strangely, I beat all these other fighters who are much better than me normally...I love my older sibling... :)
Okay. I'm not getting to sleep anytime soon, but I should at least make the effort and take my allergy pill (Clariton. Expensive, but boy does it work...), and climb into bed with a book...
Has a date...
