I know you've been waiting, and I know you're totally jealous- you should be!
I met the most amazing new friend last weekend -HEYRED!
I was so excited to meet her, but I had to wait until the Ex picked up the kid. He was late, of course, so I was frantic. AND then I realized I had to get gas
I totally passed right by the place we were to meet, and u-turned thinking "She's going to think I'm irresponsible and not completely stoked to meet her"
So I get there, having a picture of her in mind (which was false- she's prettier in person!), text her I'm there, and then...
I see her. In line in front of me, friendly, and smiling and ordering. She sees me a few seconds later, and I wave, and she mouths "Shay?" I nod my head thinking if I wasn't Shay, I'd wish I was at that moment!
Now, I know this sounds like the beginning to a grand love story. lol. I'm not a lesbian, but if I was- she'd be in trouble!
No...it was comfortable. And I was SO nervous getting there. It was a blessing.
It's one thing to bare your soul to people you'll never see in real life. And then there are people so far, far away that you like so much there's a real possibility of meeting one day. And then there are people. right in your backyard, that you could've seen at a store, or driving down the road, that are all of a sudden important to you (see?? be NICE in traffic!).
Because of ...the ex, traffic, getting gas, the U-turn (all things in life you think suck hard) I was rewarded a few seconds of knowing someone a few SECONDS before they knew me. And the seconds were telling.
This chick is nice. She speaks kindly to people who serve her. She is patient. She has a warm smile. She doesn't screw around- she ordered and got right where she needed to be (heeey, HEYRED....you really haven't been there before...right?? lol).
Had a BLAST. Spent a few hours talking, and honestly, could've spent a few hours more. I told her in the parking lot that it didn't FEEL like a first meet- it felt like I was having coffee with a friend.
She agreed, but honestly, when someone says that to you, what are you going to say? lol.
But she's hanging with me again, so
I didn't seem too weird!
Anyway, thanks HEYRED for my first awesome Spark Meet!!!
