I was sitting in the Starbucks booth checking my watch.
2:55 pm. We said 3 didn’t we? Yes I am sure we said 3. It’s ok I am early, she will be here.
2:59 pm. There she is. WOW she looks hot. Did I under-dress? No I look good. I look great. I am the man.
Hi. Yah I hate buses too. Sure let’s go get the coffees.
3:03 pm. She is really talking up a storm. She must be nervous. She never talks this much. Her shirt is cut low… don’t look… don’t look.. don’t look… shit I looked. Did she notice? Phew. Ok eyes. Eyes. Eyes
School was good then? Yah I skipped a class today. I know I am awful. I never missed a day in high school so I figure I am allowed to miss a few now. What kind of person were you in high school?
3:10 pm. She dated the same guy for 3 years in high school? Hmmm well that means she probably has less experience in relationships.
3:13 pm. Oh my god. Is she actually picking up her phone.
Oh yah if it’s your mom don’t worry.
So her parents obviously have some hold on her life. Wow she is getting really uncomfortable I wonder what her mother is saying. Yup she is now having a passive fight with her mother. Ok,out my phone like I don’t notice. This is awkward. What is it I always say? Right, its only awkward if you make it awkward.
3:15 pm. The best date I have ever been on? Well…
not this one. Maybe I am being a little harsh but this is not the future mother of my children. Wait what?! Where did that thought come from?
3:17 pm. So do you like cats or dogs?
DOGS!!! Augh… well she is for sure not my wife now, too.
Blink of an eye.
