[My friends seem to think I need to be hooked up during the holidays. They like playing match-maker. I being a good sport, agree to the dates... Some are better than others.]
I met this guy through a mutual friend. We haven't been talking long... I asked him if we could meet up for coffee once he got off of shift at 6am on Thanksgiving Day. He was okay with meeting up, suggested Starbucks. We went met up at 6:20a and had coffee. He gave me a hug upon meeting me. We sat, drank coffee, chatted about everything, and laughed at some of the things we were talking about.
He mentioned about my blushing at some point in our conversation which made me blush ten times harder. I made an actual sign motion, to which he caught and the conversation goes....
Me: [Signed 'Shy and embarrassed']
JR: Why are you shy and embarrassed? All we are doing is talking?
Me: Oh cause I'm enjoying myself and sitting next to a handsome guy that appears to know sign language.
JR: Oh really. I'm gonna have to kick his bum.
Me: [Signed 'Maybe a Kiss is better then kicking him.']
JR: Did you just sign the word "Kiss"?
Me: ((Blushing)) Hmmm... Maybe, I don't know. Why?
JR: Cause I've been thinking about [signs word 'kissing'] you since I saw you walk into Starbucks.
Me: OH Really?!?! ((Blushing more)) Well, you are gonna have to settle for my hand, as I don't kiss on the first date.
JR: No, this isn't a date yet. This is getting to know one another. A date would be me taking you out to Oishii Japanese Restaurant on the River Oaks side of town and then us going for drinks afterward. Maybe we can do that next Friday (Dec 6)? ((He takes hold of my hand and kisses it ever so gently. Turns my hand over to where the palm is up and kisses my wrist a few times.))
Me: ((Giggling Loudly)) That's not fair! You totally hit a tickle spot on my wrist.
JR: Ya, cause I wanted to see that beautiful smile and to make you blush again.
Me: ((New shade of red and smiling big))
We didn't leave the coffee shop until 1:30pm that day. We have been talking since and enjoying each others company. I can't wait for Friday and this date. Even though it will be raining in Houston, I'm sure many memories will be made on our first date.
