These days, I’m opposed to double dates. I don’t have any real reason, haven’t had any bad experiences, I just don’t want to… Part of the issue is my imagination. Them:
When the husband suggested we double date with his childhood friend, I let it go through one ear and out of the other. I mean, he knows I don’t like people. But, he was serious! What was I going to do? I was fresh out of fake smiles and conversation so I did what any logical person would do, I talked to a friend who also doesn’t like people. It sounds counterproductive but she’s better at people than me. Her advice was to be so charming that I fool my husband into thinking I’m a charming individual! Is this possible? I still didn’t have it in me but was wearing a cute outfit and my favorite faux fur vest (which has no relevancy but made me feel good).
About an hour prior to our double no, the husband realized I can be extra awkward when forced into social situations and changed his mind. “I don’t feel like going.” And I said: “We have to. At the least, it’ll make a great blog post.”
We met them at their house but didn’t have to ride with them. Thank gosh! I knew stranger husband was a childhood friend of the husband but I didn’t personally know him and his stranger wife nor did I have sufficient time to cyberstalk and or run a background check. After about 3 minutes of being my usual unusual self, I started to warm up. Truth is, the husband and the stranger husband were hilarious together. We went bowling, had drinks and good conversation. What is this feeling? Is this fun?! Dear gawd no!
Just because this was fun, it doesn’t mean I’m going to be double noing every weekend. I’ve fullfilled my quota and should be good until November 2017.
I am 92% done with the new site: pinkgumbeaux.com. Although I will continue to have a presence on Blogger, it will no longer be my main blog *insert tears here* Till then, you know I need friends so “like” Pink Gumbeaux on Facebook and follow me on Twitter, Instagram, Rabadaba, and StumbleUpon. While you’re at it, check out my last post: The Week After Ft. Husband.
