Jakarta adult date
That's how she spells it, but it's pronounced like a ray of sunshine, which she is every day. My family moved to town during the summer, so I was the new kid when sixth grade started in the fall. "Yes darling, and I'm terribly sorry, but something important has come up, and I'm going to have to ask you to take a date night rain check this week." Well that's odd. Even before the kids went off to school (our youngest left for college last fall, and we've been empty nesters for eight months), we never missed a night.
Well, if you consider "always" to be since I met her in the sixth grade. "The black one dear." She fast became my best friend. Not romantically, I mean like girlfriend/boyfriend. Our parents became friendly, so we were even together for family barbecues, and even a couple of vacations. And the entire thing about the guy having to get up the courage to risk rejection to cold call some piece of feminine fluff, and if she said yes you were responsible for keeping an adolescent teen female entertained for the evening while she was hoping for Prince Charming, well it's torture.
" "No Evan, none of that is true, especially when you consider I've nothing to compare it too. I could date a bit, and might even find out the grass is greenest in my own yard..." "I see.
Until five minutes ago, I would have called you my best friend. All this happened without me getting an inkling that something was off with 'us.' I still don't even know what it was that drove you away.
"Yes Rei, stay as long as you like." I can't remember her being this quiet for this long.
Because I..." "No, stay." I deserve a fucking Oscar for this performance.
If we couldn't find a babysitter, Friday nights became family dates, with us hitting a less expensive, though less romantic eatery, and hitting the bowling alley or a PG movie instead of pursuing something more adult. She must have expected an outburst, or an objection. What did I do that was not worth your confidence as my best friend? I don't think my reaction was at all in her script. Oh and she was a swimmer and a diver in the summer. " We did our homework together more days than not, and liked the same books and movies. I couldn't stomach girl drama, with all the notes being passed about who liked me, or inquiring what I thought of this girl or that. She was gymnast, and became a cheerleader in high school. This is something different, and you're not going." "But today is Friday dear, and we always have 'date night' on Friday! We started dating in high school out of self defense.
I still didn't have a plan, but I intended to keep control of the ball. That meant she has been indulging in exactly such non-husband approved activities as I imagined. Everytime you wanted a child, it took you six months to decide, then go on birth control, then start that blasted scheduled regimen of trying to conceive according to body temperature and tables of the lunar orbit and whether high tide was stronger in Boston or Jakarta." Again no answer.
