"He's sooo nice!"
"He's sooo cute!"
"He's on the football team. Want to see a picture of him?"
It was clear to me within the first, oh... 10 seconds, where this was going.
She: So... he asked me to homecoming too... and it's the same night! Can I tell Casey I don't want to go?
Me: Thank You Mary!
She: Shut up Mary!
Sorry Casey... I hope she treats you nicely on your date and doesn't sulk because you're not the Busch Gardens guy. I hope the restaurant you choose doesn't have tablecloths, unless they're paper. And please, skip the flowers. She's just not that into you. To her, you are now merely a life lesson in honoring your word.
One day she's going to go on a date with a guy she's crazy about. I'm glad this first date is with 'just a friend.' It makes this whole new frontier in growing up a little less scary. For me. Baby steps...
