i did it! i, the incom­pe­tent foot-in-mouth anti­sua­vo geekoid, asked a cute girl to go for some cof­fee and a chat! this is unchart­ed ter­ri­to­ry for me because i have been way too shy up until this point. she couldn’t do it because she has to look after her sis­ter but she left me an open invi­ta­tion to come back (to borders)and ask her again. go me!so i sup­pose i will go back once i have a free moment and see what hap­pens. the big news out of all of this how­ev­er, is that I ACTUALLY GOT up the nerve to do it! if i can do it any­one can. (sounds like one of those weight loss tes­ti­mo­ni­als 🙂

i’m sor­ry, this needs much bet­ter expla­na­tion, so i’m gonna turn it into a yarn.

this girl is one pur­ty thing. 5′1″ prob­a­bly around 90 pounds, big light brown eyes, hair just above her shoul­ders that was once pink but has now fad­ed into a rose col­or, nice breasts for her size, poised and engag­ing (not the breasts, her). she has a nose ring and is a music major at South­ern Michi­gan. her name is ani. she ini­ti­at­ed the con­ver­sa­tion at the apt­ly named ‘check­out’ by ask­ing me if i was a col­lege stu­dent. when i asked her about her­self she told me many things and we had a nice if brief con­ver­sa­tion. i think she was just as goo­gly­moo­gly ner­vous as i was but i could just be doing some Freudi­an pro­jec­tion. any­ways i just have to scrounge up some time to get into the store and talk to her again, per­haps this time remem­ber­ing to ask for her phone num­ber.
