So, I know I told you my life is boring. Well actually its not. I just don't know how to put everything into words.
I am actually very busy and do a lot of different things that puts me into contact with a lot of people. I play sports, work, and am in grad school. I also manage to cook almost all of my meals (leftovers) to save money. I try new foods all the time. Last night I made a gazpacho for the first time. It was pretty good. I made it with a tropical twist including pineapple and mangos. I also do landscaping on the side whenever my schedule and weather permits. I have a wide knowledge of plants and am more than willing to help people with theirs. I am probably going to be telling you about some of my favorite plants or landscape architecture in general as well as food! I am a foodie!
So, I am sure you are wondering where I am going with this. I don't have much time to meet people to date. I have however met a lady. Lets call her IT Girl. Well, IT Girl lives in another city and is coming up this weekend. I don't know what our status is, but she is staying at my house. I have only done a few things with her (played volleyball and had lunch), so I don't know if she likes me or what. She is coming to town for work and is staying the weekend to go to a party with work friends.
So, being the gentleman that I am, I am planning on getting up early to make breakfast. I was wanting to make crepes with bananas and nutella, but I quizzed her about what kind of food she likes and dislikes, and she hates bananas. So, that is out of the question. Plan B was blueberry pancakes, so I asked her about berries. NO on blueberries. So, I am now going to make chocolate chip pancakes and regular pancakes. So, if she likes it she can have either one. I guess I should include a meat or something.
Well, as you can tell I have been thinking about that for a while. Well, last night another wrench in the plans happened. I have been driving my parent's extra car the Lincoln Continental or as I call it Old Gray Hair. My dad has a pimp old man golfing hat in the back window. So, the ladies at Braum's flock to the car when I drive up. Well, Old Gray Hair gave out on me last night. I guess the water pump went out on it. (that's another long story that we don't have time for) My Corolla went out on me in June, so now I am carless. How am I supposed to impress a lady without a car? Is that possible living in Oklahoma? She is somewhat used to the finer things from what she has told me. She drives a Mercedes. I doubt she will want to ride on my little girl bike (story below) around town.
I say "so" a lot, so please forgive me. I just noticed that.
What are we going to do around town? I was hoping to meet some friends on Friday night and then the party is Saturday night. Saturday day I thought about taking her car shopping with me because she likes shopping and she says she loves negotiating big deals.
Now I just have to figure out....Does she like me? I am so clueless. I think she does but I she sends tons of mixed signals. Why do girls do that? She is staying at my house? I don't really know her that well. I have only known her a few weeks, so its not like we are friends from high school or something.
Little girl bike - So, I go to grad school, and in the school paper there was an announcement about the Physical Plant selling bikes left around campus for dirt cheap. So, I got up early and made it to campus and bought a bike. I don't know much about bikes, but the bike I picked was one of many of the same brand and color. I thought it was the nicest of those, so I paid my $5 and got it. I crammed it into the backseat/passenger seat of my Corolla and after school went to my brother's house to put some air in the tires. Him and his wife used to go biking so I knew he had a pump. Well, I start pumping the tires out and my 11 year old niece comes out of the house and says. "What are you doing with my bike?" I said "this is my bike I bought it today." She said "No, that's my bike." I look over to the corner of the garage and she has the exact same bike except her's looks much nicer. I laughed and my brother did too. I have only ridden the bike a few times around the neighborhood. One of those was from their house to mine.
