Embrace each day with an enthusiastic welcome, no matter how it looks.

Today at school I had a mini stalker for about an hour and ten minutes.  We'll call him Dilbert. Anyway, Dilbert usually sits by me in one of my classes.  You know how that works, people stake their territory and don't like change.  Well today I got to class a little bit earlier because apparently when I have a lot on my mind, I tend to walk faster than normal.  Weird.  I know.  Anyway today someone took Dilbert's seat. So Dilbert got a little frustrated when he walked in and someone else was peeing on his fire hydrant. Whether the hydrant was me or the seat... hopefully we'll never know. I don't think I'll ever understand dogs... i mean... men.  Anyway I'm getting off subject.  So we're just sitting in class and my new next door neighbor writes me a little note informing me of Dilberts persistent stare.  He wrote, I think he likes you.  I said, No no, he just wants his seat back. I ignored poor little Dilbert for the rest of class, I avoided eye contact and rejoiced when I found out he wasn't in my group.  There were three reasons I avoided him. First, If it was true that he was staring at me then he was probably contemplating asking me out. Which I did not want. Second, If this was the case... okay... I'll admit... I was being a bit shallow but come on... Dilbert just isn't very attractive. Third, He's super annoying. He reminds me of a person that likes to talk really loudly when on their blue tooth in the grocery store. That drives me crazy. Anyway, class ended and I'm sitting down packing up my backpack as I look up I see Dilbert. "Dang it Dilbert!" I thought, "Cut me some slack!" So I look up and smile. Dilbert follows me out of class and then I check my pocket for my cell phone. I had never been so happy to lose my cell phone before. I told Dilbert sorry but I had to go back and get my cell phone. Oh but no worries! Dilbert to the rescue! "I'll help you look for it!" he says. Unable to find my cell phone we continued on to my next class. I talked about how mad I was that I couldn't find my cell phone wanting to steer the conversation away from anything that might involve my plans for this weekend. Dilbert says, "Well, on a lighter note, how would like like to go out tonight?"... Yeah lighter note for you buddy! He totally caught me off my game though. I agreed to go out and told him where to pick me up and said don't worry about getting my number though, I lost my phone. So Dilbert smiled in success and left me, a phoneless, gameless girl going to her Geology class. 

I've never been the type of girl to go on random dates. I like to go on dates with guys I'm interested in, (imagine that), I've done this whole, just for dating sake thing, once before and it didn't go very well. Hopefully this time it will be better. Maybe it could be good. We're always told to give people a chance. So that's my goal. I will give him a chance. To make my self feel a little bit better though...I'm not getting all dolled up.

I realized I never updated anyone on how the date went! It was so long ago. I do, however, remember that he took me to his parents house for dinner. Where there was hair in the food and the dogs smelled and wouldn't move away from the dinner table. I hope this doesn't make me sound like a snob. I really am not. Then to a fiddling show. Then back to his parents to play board games. turns out he was a local... unfortunately Becky, I don't think showing him the make me babies website would have done the trick I think it would've egged him on... It was a very awkward date.
