So yesterday I wondered aloud whether I should let a friend in on a secret – that I kinda had a little thing the guy I’d been making fun of her for liking too.
Well at around 12:30pm yesterday, it took care of itself.
I got an urgent message on my phone from The Pansy and instead of checking my voicemail, I just called her right back.
“Uh hey, what’s up?” I asked “You called?”
“So I’ve converted you…” she said laughing
“Um, what?” I asked, knowing full well that the cat was out of the bag
“So you like [redacted] too now?”
“Yeah, kinda” I mumbled
“I didn’t know you read my blog” I said quietly
“I always have” she replied
“Is this why you asked me if it would bother me if you started liking him too?”
[awkward pause] “Yeah”
“How long have you known?”
“Uh, my friend Dave clued me in this weekend” I thought to myself but I think I said something along the lines of “I don’t know”
I was trapped in what was easily one of the most awkward conversations I’d had in a long time.
“I can’t believe you wouldn’t tell me if you hooked up!” she said indignantly “I would tell you…”
“Yeah,” I interrupted “but that’s the difference between you and I, I wouldn’t want to know!” “That’s just how I roll dude, sorry”
I then said something like “Besides, I don’t even think I would hook up with him” which at this point is probably true, because I don’t even like him that much, and I get bored really easily.
By the time this post is published, I may very well be over him
