So I spent all of yesterday out and about, ending in a tango lesson and hanging out with Bret. As usual, I very much enjoyed his company, and wished I had some insight into how he felt. Something - anything.
Tonight he called, and we talked for over an hour. I'm feeling myself falling into something I haven't felt in a long time - the whole heart-pounding, silly giggling and blushing thing. But if only I knew!
During the conversation, I mentioned the fact that I'd be using my other diary as a way to let people know how I was doing while I'm gone. In return, he mentioned his online journal and gave me the name of it so I could read it. After I thought about it for a sec, remembering that I'd mentioned him in there a couple of times, I gave him that diary's name. The second I got off the phone, I raced online to his journal.
He likes me he likes me he likes me!! I garnered mentions on several days, usually when he talked about what he was doing. One mention stuck out in my mind. Talking about traffic getting to the tango lesson a couple weeks back, "and there she was, waiting for me right outside the door. Begin happy part." Also talking about being afraind about starting somethign that coule be potentially painful after we all went dancing, and on another day, "Did I mention Stephie's going to London for a semester? On the positive side of things..." He likes my company, he enjoys spending time with me...he likes me he likes me he likes me!!!
On another note, the world's been flipping upside down a bit these days. My older brother called the other day - he's getting married. Not right now - he and Cassie are waiting a year to save money for the wedding, but good grief. Also, yesterday my mother got asked out on a date for the first time in over twenty years, and decidedly the first time since Daddy died. Good grief again.
But the world's not completely upside-down. Maybe just sideways. But good grief, I'm saying.
