A building around the way caught fire. HEI stops by for brunch but we're captivated by the heat from flames. Quite something, those firemen.
Her: There's always something happening around you!
Me: I like to keep you on your toes.
Friday night, meet up with PCD.
Her: Why do you have so many different types of plates and cups?
Me: (shrugging) Had lots of failed relationships
Her: (pause) That's a lot sadder an answer than I was expecting.
End up walking around Columbia for a slice of Koronet Pizza and lounging on the steps to the library.
Her: I like you but...I'm seeing other people, you know...
Me: (nodding) I'll take that under advisement.
Saturday, wrestle. PCD's a little freaked out that I'm pretty much constantly covered with black and blue marks; I look like an abused child.
Saturday night, meet up with Heartgirl and some friends downtown. We end up alone, just after midnight, and chat.
Me: I'm sorry, I'm not up on the young people speak - what does that mean, Don't catch emotion with me?
Her: It means don't fall for me. (pause) I'm looking to date other guys.Me: (nodding) I'll take that under advisement.
I kiss her goodnight and she hops into a cab. We're supposed to meet up Saturday but she's always ditching so I don't expect to actually see her. As I turn around, I lock eyes with two pretty blonds, smile and start chatting with them.
Me: ...everyone's got their front-runners and back-burners. But that's my story with her (Heartgirl). Why don't we talk about our story?
Her: (sarcastically) Well aren't you confident?Me: (grin) Quite.
Her: (laughing) I like that.Me: (nodding) I'll take that under advisement.
The wedding was beautiful. I'd like a wedding like that. Suppose, I'd have to find a girlfriend first, though...
