Not Having One, Whilst Hearing About Everyone Else's
or: "How I Don't Have The Courage To Ask Out This One Girl I Like"
Gather 'round, audio friends, it's story time!
So, there's a girl in my physics class that I like. And...I'm going to cut out all the boring exposition crap. Anyway, I nearly racked up the courage to ask her on a sort-of-date-but-not-really.
But then I didn't.
So I decided on Monday, "Hmm, I'll write a note instead. And 'accidentally' drop it on her desk during class." I planned to do that on Wednesday.
Wednesday came and went. No note.
So I told myself, I WILL DO IT FRIDAY!
Well, today was Friday, Friday, gotta get that note to a girl I like on Friday.
I actually worked up the courage to write the note.
"Would you care to study for the physics exam with me next week over a hot beverage, say a coffee - or tea, if you prefer? If yes, come talk to me after class. If no, please crumple this paper into a ball and throw it at me, so at least I'll have a funny story to tell."
I kept procrastinating - I'll put it off for a few minutes. Well, class ended early, right about the time I got up the courage to actually hand her the note.
And I was mad, too, because we were covering the Specific Heat Capacity of water, and I even lined up a tastefully awful physics joke for the occasion:
"Melt the ice? I'd rather break it."
TL;DR: Boy likes girl, girl likes boy, neither have the courage to talk to each other, boy tries to find creative way to tell girl he likes her, boy ALMOST gets girl, boy loses girl. My life is pretty much looking like a standard Rom-Com at this point.
