Quandary much?
Ok, so let's say you had a little function coming up that warranted bringing a date. Mostly because it says on the invite "you and a guest" which really mostly blows for those of us who don't have a regular "guest" to bring.
You start skimming through the last few chapters of your life filed in The Brain and come to the conclusion that there are two possible "guests" you could bring.
The first of which is obviously open to these types of functions since he has accompanied you to one before. He is fun to hang out with and can keep up with you in conversation (let's face it, with me, that is no small feat) and the best friend of The Cake Lady's husband who will also be there. He can hold his own with no problemo at these types of things and even make them more fun than they would have been.
However, you haven't spoken to or seen him since Christmas when he put his arm around you and walked you back into the house.
No calls, no accidental bumping-in-to's --nadda.
(on a scale of 1-10)
Level of possible awkwardness: 7
Chance of complete recovery: 9
Possibility of fun: 8
Possibility of fun: 4

The second is a guy you fooled around with back in December and who then called you sporadically and unexpectedly. He is dreamy-cute and fun to talk to.
However, he hasn't been test driven at this type of function and isn't a 'sure thing'. And you haven't seen him in two months since a night of pool, alcohol and a long phone call where you surprisingly didn't make an ass out of yourself.
(on a scale of 1-10)
Level of possible awkwardness: 7
Chance of complete recovery: 7
Possibility of fun: 7
Possibility of fun: 7

So to recap the Options:
1. Invite
Snakeman and hope you can both ignore the inevitable awkwardness that two people share after not having spoken for three months...
2. Invite
Teacher Boy and ignore the inevitable awkwardness that two people share after not having spoken for two months...
3. Go stag, ride with a DD and get really drunk.

Keep in mind that option (3) will involve the drunk dialing of anyone whose number I can dial with one eye closed.
Suggestions welcomed.

"I just got done reading the history lessons on your blog (yes, I've been lurking on your blog). All the respect I had for you...has increased, like, tenfold. I don't think I could have done it. To go through what you have and not only still be able to discuss it with such wit and poise, but also to raise those three gorgeous girls. You are truly an inspiration. You are honestly one of the strongest people I have ever known, either online or IRL. Thank you so much." -Stef
