I will give you the lowdown of last night’s date later today. Got home around 11:30PM after much strolling (which I did enjoy as usual; and yes, I brought $20 in one dollar bills and handed a few (one wouldn’t take it and another K told me afterwards wasn’t homeless; a funny mock argument ensued: “Why didn’t you tell me?” “I said, move on!” “I thought you pulled me aside to tell me something! You didn’t so I gave him the money!” “I thought you knew what I meant!” and laughing) to each homeless person we passed–that was part of my date idea and I meant it!, a cocktail, and fabulous Indian dinner. Can’t remember the name of the place but I’m going back. I ordered their JACKFRUIT curry–so excited to see it on the menu–and he asked what other vegan dish we should share, which was a nice gesture; we loved both dishes AND the best vegetable pakoras he suggested we share, too. I wore the damn new sandals which, and I don’t know if this means anything, didn’t bother me until I got home and assessed the damage.
K is an interesting man. I don’t know what to make of him yet. I’d like to go out on a second date because, as usual, today I’m thinking of all the great things I should’ve said last night but didn’t. I’ll remember them if we get together for a movie like he suggested we go to sometime (does “sometime” mean sayonara?). He did repeat what a pleasure it was, the night and meeting me. I felt the same way. He’s TOTALLY different from my non-communicative ex. Asked lots of questions I wasn’t prepared to answer (going by the Matchmaker’s rules!) completely–meaning he caught me off guard.
I kinda wish I’d told him my RA flare had wiped me out after being out all day to explain my not articulating as well as I’d wished. When I got home, into jammies, and completed bedtime ablutions, I sank onto the sofa and didn’t move for an hour. Utter exhaustion. And yet while I was out I was definitely having a good/interesting/illuminating time and being 100% me. Yikes!
Wow, I love to talk and write and I haven’t given you the lowdown yet. Must be the coffee and clearing skies, the first of which I need a second cup. So great to have (or soonish to have) interesting stuff–life–to share with my friends and mom!
Hope you all had a wonderful night and enjoy a great 4th. I wanna do something tonight and I doubt Politics & Prose is open for its fun Friday night events. Someone invite me somewhere! Man, I’m pushy. Guess that happens when you move to the city 😉
Love and peace.
