Surfer Guy, Shakespeare, & Sylphs

So today I end up down by the swimming pool looking for a missing freshman. The entire swim team is sitting on the steps, their practice nearly over, being lectured by one of the assistant coaches. Several of my friends turn around and say hello then turn back. Then hot surfer guy turns around and sees me. He smiles, calls out my name (Hey, ****), and asks if I'm coming to the major meet on Saturday. It made my rather dim day brighten considerably.

 

I think I may have a crush on him; this is information to which my rational mind screams "Oh, no! Not again!" but frankly, I don't care.

 

What's odd about him is that I know very little about him. I know that he's nice, he's friendly (and I'm certain that's all he intends to be), he's on the surf team, and he's a Junior. Every attempt I've made to find out about him has met with dead ends. His teammates seem to know as much as I do, and his friends are not people I normally find myself talking to, and it'll look odd if I spend my time enquiring about Him. I guess I'm going to have to have an actual conversation with him one of these days. That should be fun.

 

Of course, highschool isn't complete unless there's a love triangle buried somwhere. I think a girl wants me to take her to prom rather badly. A few of her friends have started hinting at it, she's been talking to me more often than usual, and this is her second night attending the local Shakespeare Reading group with me. Nobody else has tried even once as it involves spending time with a group of people that could kindly be called "eccentric." I think she's fairly dedicated to her cause. Me. Help?!

Hey Shadows!

 

He smiles, calls out my name (Hey, ****),

WOW! You're name is the same as my password! :boy:

Well if you leave yourself somewhere new you never know where you'll next find yourself. ;)

Who on earth wouldn't want to spend their time with the "eccentric"? Those are my favourite types of people! Being normal is SOOOO overrated...I mean you only ever find yourself doing and saying mundane things if you're normal.

 

Um anyway...Do you think this girl wants more from you than just a date to prom? If not, and if she is pretty cool in the first place, you might as well just take her right? I mean you agreed to go, and you said you weren't going to go with a guy, so why not make some poor girl happy? Of course if she's interested in a relationship with you -- or just wants to get in your pants :P -- then you might find yourself forced to explain that you're not that kind of boy. :boy: I dunno, dude, I guess it could get tricky. If it were me I'd probably take her but try to nicely make it clear that you aren't interested in anything more. Besides school's almost out right? Maybe you can just sorta dodge her until then if she does start coming on too strong.

 

Oh I've been wanting to ask you. What's up with your new sig.?

"Show Me a Happy Homosexual and I'll Show You a Gay Corpse''

It's really pessimistic; I hope you don't really believe that ;) **grins like an idiot to prove he's happy**

 

Well anyway I hope it all works out, take care of yourself and have an awesome day!

Kevin

 

P.S. Please don't take any offense at my "find yourself" jokes, I actually really love that idiom and the delightfully amusing mental images in conjures up.

Just grab the boy and kiss him already ... you'll regret it for the rest of your life if you don't! :P

 

Or at least find an excuse to go out for coffee with him or something ...
