The Date

The times they are a-changin’.

This post seems to be older than 18 years—a long time on the internet. It might be outdated.

This is could be considered part two of the conversation that Annie and I had the other day online and the funny Facebook shenanigans thereof. For the record, I did really need help with an experiment. The details aren’t too important and programmers are really the only ones who would care enough to actually figure out what the heck is going on. In short, Facebook has some weird behavior that doesn’t quite make sense and it was critical that I test the conditions under which this behavior could be replicated.

However, my story really starts just over a month ago. I was talking randomly with this girl and she was really funny. So after contemplating
for some time, I finally decided to ask her out. The good news is, I didn’t get a “no.” Of course, the bad news I didn’t get a “yes” either. I actually
got something complete unexpected: she currently had “boyfriend(ish)” who she was planning on breaking up with (and I had no idea about), but then she said, “Check back in a month….and don’t weenie out on me!”

That was right before Christmas Break. That brings me to yesterday, first day back. We have Physics II together. Unfortunately, we have this stupid little test to take in class. She finishes before I do and leaves before I can ask again. I was finally able to track her down and asked her. After some quizzing on what I meant by date (I had to promise not to chase tornado’s, fire trucks, ambulances, and like), she goes: “we’re on.”

For those who know me, this is a pretty big thing, similar to getting a 4.0 in your hardest class.

P.S. I would have sent this out earlier, but I had to go skiing today. A foot of fresh and riding on North America’s highest chairlift (Summit:
12,840ft). It’s a hard life, let me tell you 😉 .
