Chronicles of a Crush: Reality Sinks In
Friday, June 15, 2007

So yesterday I was asking my coworker, Mitch, why he hasn't responded to my birthday evite. I don't think I've ever talked about Mitch. He lives in the same house where I went to open mic and first met Rob. The day we went to Disneyland, Mitch did me a huge favor by dropping off the parking pass at Rob's house, so Rob wouldn't have to pay for parking. Mitch is a totally awesome guy, he's funny and everyone in the office loves him.

So I bought him a super delicious cookie yesterday, as a thank you for doing me that favor. I said "Hey so are you coming to my party?" He said "I can't make it Saturday night, sorry I have this church thing at 8pm." Clearly he didn't read the evite carefully, otherwise he would've known it started at 4pm. I said he could totally stop by, and Rob was going to be there, so maybe they could carpool.

So now that that was settled, the rest of our conversation went like this....

Me: "So what's this church thing you're going to?"

Mitch: "Well, don't laugh okay, but I was assigned leader of this dating committee and I've put together a list (**shows me list of guys and girls columns**) to pair people up for a date on Sat. night."

Me: "Oohh, that's interesting. I wonder if Rob is on this list."

Mitch: **snatches list from my hand** "Uhhh you can't look at that, it's confidential."

Me: "Mitch. He's on the list isn't he?"

Mitch: "I'm not saying anything."

Me: "Dude, it's fine. We're just friends and I'm glad he's meeting new LDS gals."

Mitch: "Suuuuure. Friends. Uh huh."

Seriously, at this point, I really wasn't upset at all. I already knew this was going to happen, and I bet Rob's been on a bunch of dates in between "hanging out" with me.

Me: "So, how does this work, do these people just find out who their date is and then plan an activity?"

Mitch: "No, we organize the event. This Saturday we're going to a drive-in movie."

Me: "Uhhh huh. Drive-in eh?"

So well, I'm gonna be totally honest. This is the part where I did get a tad jealous/upset. *sigh* So he's gonna go to my bday party, then that same night go to a drive-in movie where it's dark, cozy, oh and did I mention dark? Yah. So this is basically reality hitting me in the face. Yes, we've all known it was going to come to this. I really want to be friends with him, which is why I'm so upset with myself.... for reacting like this, for not being able to shake off these feelings. *double sigh* Someone please tell me to get over this. Now.

    It's all good in the hood, you're still going to have a blast sweetie so don't worry! =) And plus the date that he's going on isn't even a real date, but one that he's got to go on for an activity at his Church, trust me, it's not a big deal! =)
