The IM started out with “Hey, guess what?” and ended with “I’ll pick you up about 12:30 on Tuesday.”
I think I have a date.
I know your first question is going to be, “What do you mean you think you have a date?”. And my response would be, “Just what I said. I think I have a date.”
OK…Here’s how it went down. I IM’d her and said, “Hey, guess what? I bought a new car.” She responded with “What kind?”. We chatted for a bit, then she said, “When are you going to let me drive it?” I said, “Hahahaha. Never.” Then she said, “Well, when am I going to get to ride in it?” I said, “When do you want to ride in it?” (smooth, huh?) She said, “You tell me.” After some schedule checking, we agreed on lunch Tuesday. Actually, it was her idea to meet for lunch.
So, Dear Reader, now do you understand why I say “I think I have a date”.
