Pin It I found the message. I couldn’t believe it because I thought I had accidentally deleted it nearly a year ago.
The message? What was it? Well, to explain that I must take you back first…do you remember that time about 18 months ago when I told you that I was asked out for ‘dinner and a movie?’
Yeah, this is no big deal, and most certainly not an unusual thing for a girl to ask a guy out nowadays…but what if you were being asked out by a dude?
Well, because of a case of mistaken identity, what I actually had thought was my neighbor and his wife wanting to hang out, it turned out to be a prearranged meeting with the member of the same sex. My thoughts turned immediately to a revelation a friend of mine had made sometime before. She admitted that two of her gay friends at one time or another had said that both my brother and I were some ‘serious eye candy.’ It seemed that I was, yet again, bane to the curse of good looks…
What can I say? People have taste.
Unfortunately, I had also committed to this meeting before I actually knew what was going on. I wasn’t sure what I was going to do, but knew most certainly that didn’t want to go on this particular little outing.
To remedy the dilemma, I called up two of my good friends, Craig and Shayla. I explained my predicament and both were sympathetic. They agreed to meet me at Chili’s and we would turn this into a group ‘hang out’ session. I can’t tell you how grateful I was for both of these friends saving me from this particular event in my life.
To make a long story short, the guy who’d done the inviting apparently didn’t want to hang out with the three of us and opted to cut out early. Meanwhile Craig, Shayla and I had a great evening together getting dessert, heading out to listen to a friend of Shayla’s perform, checking out the newest in music and video at the local entertainment store, and planning to TP certain individual’s houses.
However, I have to admit that the climax of the whole affair didn’t come until the next day. It came in the form of the message I got from Craig. This is just another reminder of why I have some of the greatest friends that the world can supply…
Now, don't you wish that Craig was your friend, too?
