At least I can laugh at myself.

I've posted a lot of heavy things lately.
I'm sure you, my wonderful readers (!), must be thinking that nothing good ever happens.
I just don't write about the uneventful stuff...So this is rare.
I had an embarrassing moment at lunch today, but nothing tragic. Just laughably awkward.
Brianna, ANF (Who is no longer a new friend - but still Awesome - so I will refer to him anonymously as "X"), and I were eating lunch together and talking about My Little Pony. It was just the three of us, and it was great. I don't know if I've laughed so hard in a long time. Then Russ showed up.
He started talking about a mutual friend of ours (W.) who has met a girl. Apparently W. doesn't realize that the girl returns his feelings. I said, "Guys are completely oblivious when a girl likes them. They don't understand subtle signals."
"X" got very quiet. Sometime later he said, "I'm gonna be paranoid of every girl I hang out with now. What if one of them likes me and I'm too stupid to see it?" (You are, you are, you are!) I asked him how many girls he hangs out with regularly. He said "Like a half-dozen. But 3 aren't in the "right situation." (I do believe that means "available.")
I think I know these three girls. One who turned him down, Brianna, and Me.
I bet my face turned all shades of red. Hopefully no one saw.
Anyway, I can't say I haven't tried. I've met other guys on the internet & stuff, and while they're mostly sweet and/or attractive, I always find myself falling for real-life friends. Especially friends who have been in my life for months & never left...
At least, when I eventually get turned down by this one, we will probably still talk after.
Or maybe I'll learn to avoid him too. But we have most of the same friends, so it would be difficult.
Change of plans: He will never know.


  1. Guys are simple, but sometimes don't pick up on stuff... for all girls, if little hints don't work, just tell the guy you like him.

    We can make our plans, but the LORD determines our steps.
