Re:(Elation?)ship Thoughts Part 2 - 05.29.00|
One thing I've done several times in this section is write about little relationship anecdotes or conversations that have taken place (or not). It's something that I find fun and interesting, and looking back on the earlier pieces, I actually think that they're some of my favorite pieces that I've done (not only that, but it's fast reading). In keeping with the above theme, I present another batch of relationship thoughts, conversations, and situations.
"I'm not sure. I think it was because I just wasn't nervous enough."
"First off, she wasn't naked in the pictures. She was wearing underwear and a bra. For seconds, I went ahead and threw all the pictures away a couple months after we broke up."
"Well, you could have at least thrown them somewhere I'd happen to find them."
She looked at me, amused at first, then said, "You know, the reason you never go out on any dates might be because you never ask anyone out."
In my attempt at being witty, that logic must have somehow slipped my mind.
"What do you mean by that?"
"Well, it was weird that it seemed like a totally natural conversation to be having, and it was good for the very same reason."
'Hello, I know that this may seem strange, but you intrigue me. Something about the way you move or something that I simply can't describe in a few words made me feel compelled enough to give you this card. If you think I'm crazy, simply deposit it in the nearest garbage can, but if you're interested in chatting, please contact me sometime.'"Then, at the bottom of the card, I'd put my e-mail address or something like that where they could contact me if they felt so compelled to. What do you think a girl would do if I walked up to them and handed them something like that?"
"They'd probably think you were totally fuckin' looney."
