Polly: Do tell!
So I am sitting in the sunshine reading AK and smiling at Levin’s naivety when a shadow falls over me, blocking the aforementioned delightful sunshine.
I look up.
It is Lunch Buddy.
“What are you reading?”
“A Russian novel. But I’m reading it in English.”
[Please note I am not trying to keep this conversation going and my book is STILL OPEN, pen in hand.]
“Is it any good?”
“What’s it about?”
“19th century Russia? There are these seven main characters… some adultery… farming…”
Polly: Ugh. People who are reading are not trying to converse.
Penny: Right?! Anyway. It gets better.
“Have you figured out what you’re going to be for Halloween?”
“Actually! Yes! I think I am going to be a binder.”
Debate conversation ensues. Book sadly gets closed.
“Well. I have to get to a meeting.”
He reluctantly stands.
Me: “Have a good day!” I honestly could not be more awkward about this if I tried. Have a good day? Really??
I open my book and take out the bookmark, uncap pen.
“What are you doing this weekend?”
Polly: Seeing the guy you’re dating…
What do I sayyyyyy? MMF and I have not had any sort of Talk (but he sent me flowers!!! ) and I do NOT want to date Lunch Buddy, but I also don’t want to lie.
“Ummm. Going to [CITY].”
He was totally screwing up the courage to ask for something/sometime else…
“Actually. I’m seeing someone… so….”
TOO AWKWARD FOR LIFE WHY COULDN’T I JUST BE LIKE I AM DATING SOMEONE BYE
Polly: HAAA ahahahahAHahahah HA. SEE?? SEEEEEEEEEE?????? IT’S NOT SO EASY, IS IT?
