the sweetest sound in the world... the sound of the phone ringing. Well, it is when the person calling is the guy.

Barman BT just called. He's been sick, too. He's also had to work during his illness. With a 103 degree fever.

"Wow, it sounds like you've been sicker than me," I said.

"I probably was sicker."

"So you win this round, but I'll win the next one."

"I don't know, I think you gave me something," he joked.

"Well, that handshake of mine is pretty lethal."

He laughed.

"So I was calling to see when you're free to hang out. What's your schedule like?" he asked.

I told him I'm a 9-to-5'er.

"That's going to make it pretty tough to hang out with me. I work nights."

"Not every night, right?"

We narrowed it down to tomorrow or Tuesday.

"How about I give you a call tomorrow, just to make sure I'm feeling better," BT suggested.

"Better yet, why don't we say Tuesday and give our immune systems a rest?"

"Okay. So I'll see you on Tuesday, though I don't know what we're gonna do."

"Well, you have all weekend to come up with something good," I replied.

"Oh, that's right, I get to do all the work because I'm the guy."

"Yep. And as the girl, all I have to do is show up and look pretty."

"I'll see you on Tuesday."

I hung up and ran out of my room, squealing with glee. Roommate Rachel shook her head in amusement (or was it exasperation?) and said,

"I told you he'd call. I knew he would."

I kind of knew he would, too, just didn't think it would take this long. I didn't even consider that he might be sick, too. I just overreacted and figured he changed his mind or had a harem keeping him busy or something. So yes, I feel kind of silly. But extremely relieved. And all kinds of "YAY!"

I can feel my health improving by the minute.

I have a date with BT on Tuesday!

Glad to hear this. One thing I found interesting was that he broke many of the "pua" tenets. That is, the experts (not sure who deemed them such, but they do make money in this area) will tell you that you should always have a plan and have the woman join you (not call asking to hang out and not know what to do). It would seem he broke those rules and it didn't matter. Wow.

In any event, it worked out for the best.

See, I think it's great that he called to secure a day to hang out with me, instead of making my presence secondary to something he might already be doing. Now that I familiar with so many PUA tenets, I find it endearing when a man does something like this that contradicts them.

Wow, what an ego trip. I hope this works out for you Dolly. Can I predict what's going to happen??

Barman BT and Dolly go out on a date. BT shows a little bit too much interest which turns Dolly off. Dolly will blog about how she's lost interest and that she's moving on.

Either that or he doesn't show enough interest which makes Dolly want him even more. Than we'll be subject to reading about how she can't score this guy. Either way makes for a good blog. Keep it up!

Happy days are here again,
The skies above are clear again,
So let's sing a song of cheer again,
Happy days are here again.

Almost a WHOLE week?! I can't stand it! The suspense will kill me. Very exciting!

Dolly said...

Damn, I didn't think of it like that. For some reason I thought Tuesday was right around the corner, when it's FIVE WHOLE DAYS away. Good thing I have plenty of social activity to keep me busy.

Damsel Underdressed said...

And plenty of time to pick out just the right outfit, make sure your hair is done, get a pedicure...

Well, that might be just me.

Barmen are all the rage these days, aren't they? I simply must get one of my own.

The suspense is going to kill me!! I hope you find something/one else to blog about this weekend so I can continue to live vicariously through you.
