when things don't go the way you thought they would
The bottom fell out of the evening pretty quickly yesterday. The guy I was supposed to have the date with called my co-worker to get everything set up yesterday morning but my co-worker was super busy and couldn't get back to him until it was too late in the day for my date to be ready and to meet us.
So, no big deal. I'd already decided that if I was going to be dateless, then that would be cool. However, when I got to co-worker's house, they said that the boy from the drama was going to be riding with us. Which was pretty much the exact opposite of how I had wanted things to go. Luckily boy from the drama was busy with his family and couldn't leave until we did so he ended up riding on his own.
When we got to the party, I was flagged by my boss who had a seat saved for me, which was great because nothing sucks worse than being at some random table with people who I don't even know.
Then I won a fucking 32" Sony Flatscreen TV.
How cool is that?
We had dinner and the boy with the drama showed up... after we ate, they were doing casino night which was really cool because we usually just hang out and chat and dance... I love activities :)
Although, I must admit - I am no gambling queen. I don't even know how to play most of the games... I played roulette a few times but mostly just mingled.
It ended up that the boy with drama was by my side for the majority of the evening and we even danced a few times.
Yup, you read that right. Danced.
Oh Wine, what you do to me.
Then I was dancing with the wives. They came and got me from outside when Single Ladies came on. And, an aside, none of us knew how to do the thriller dance. Note to self - Learn Thriller dance.
At the end of the night when the boy with the drama was starting to get a little too friendly, I took him outside to have a chat with him.
I pretty much told him that he isn't serious about dating me so this whole pretending to be bit needs to stop. I told him that if we didn't work together it would be different. If we didn't work together, I would probably hookup with him. BUT we do work together and it is just enough already.
He got uber defensive and acted like I was listening to what other people had to say about him and not giving him a fair chance. But then he had to admit that he knew damn well that we weren't going to start dating seriously which negated the rest.
When I left, he was pretty pissed.
I, on the other hand, got one of the guys to load up the tv I won and cart it outside to the car and I left with a big ol' smile on my face. I had a good time, I looked fantastic, I didn't make an ass too big of an ass out of myself and I, even under the influence of a bottle of wine, did not hook up with anyone.
I'm such a good grown up :)
Oh and the date I didn't get to go with? We are in the process of setting up a New Year's Eve dinner.

"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
