Re: Crossroads III: The Launch
Tease? A tease? LMAO ..... To bring everything up to date, we have been getting along better than either of us expected. About every time we go out, I say or do something that makes her go to the bathroom because her eyeliner is running down her face. -I am smitten for you- "Whaht... you're schitten for you?" I'd say the best one had to be near the Tail of the Dragon... DCs car has more buttons than those jackets Michael Jackson made famous in the early 1980s. She said this was for the air on my side. So I would punch it... then notice it was turned off later. Okay... no problem. This time she saw me do it and wondered -WTF is he doing- She turned it off and asked why I kept turning it on. It ended up being the rear window defogger. I was turning the damn thing on in 98 degree weather. I laughed until tears were in my eyes, she laughed so hard we almost went off the road. "Pull over, you're gonna kill us."
Guys... we all have fanaticized about driving down the road, late at night, and the female giving head. Why late at night? LOL no traffic... our thoughts would be pre-occupied. Well... same goes for the female when she is driving. I guess that's one of the good things about getting to know one another. You learn the points, angle, motion. When she runs over a curb, now that's not fun at all. Her dad... huge Auburn fan. Asked if I could get seats, not the pricey ones, for a home game against a nobody team. Grabbed four tickets, much cheaper than I had thought! I asked a fellow TAM guy who is a die hard Auburn fan, where to go, where to park, what to do before game. BTW... thanks for the advice! Thursday rolled around and her dad could not make the trip. So we have two extra tickets. Let me correct myself... I had three extra. First off.... I'm not an Auburn fan, neither is DC. Her dad was wanting to come down and see my Corvette and... to see his daughter (in that order he said LOL).
Thursday afternoon I was out back working on my fire pit. Passed some time knife tossing. I live in the country... phones do not work in the back after you go behind the pool, the deck, the fence and walk into the woods. Did DC know where I was, she did. We chat on the phone mostly, sometimes FB back chat. When I came in.... eight VMs, at least ten FB messages. Long story short ... her car laid down on her, everything went dead. Ummm.. she ran out of gas. I had mentioned she needed some the night before when I checked her oil and fluids. I tell everyone, especially females, to carry a gallon of gas with them in case they run out in a "bad location" She closet smokes in her car so she was afraid to. Anyhow... I called her and got the following
Where were you? Why didn't you answer the fvcking phone? Why didn't you put gas in my car? What kind of man are you? I almost called my daddy! I had to call a co-worker and HE came out to help me!
Ahhhh "I will respond when you calm down." -WTF won't you talk to me now, cause you know you messed up- I hung the phone up.... I will not be screamed at. Ten minutes passed... she called. Was calmer. I went over every question she asked.... "You knew where I was, what I was doing, phones don't get out in the woods. You knew that when you left work." She agreed... de-escalated. -Why didn't you put gas in my car?- "You're 24, a college graduate and soon to be a graduate with an MBA. I do feel you are fully capable of putting gas in your own car......I" She exploded again, I hung up.
She was planning to come by that evening around 7:30. I did hang around. It was getting late and I went to my Italian bistro to grab lasagna since our planned dinner went in the schitter. Of course when I arrived at home, wild guess who is in the driveway. DC was somewhat calmed down.... -Let's go in and eat and we can talk afterwards- I agreed... When DC learned I had just got dinner for myself.... it was World War III. -So you didn't get me anything... Are you saying I'm fat?- I honestly started laughing. She grabbed her keys to leave, I went out on the back deck. I was not surprised... I knew this would happen. I just get a sense from people... you know it will happen, before it happens. Yes I knew this with mom but FFS.. only got one mom.
It was around 10:30, DC came to the deck.... -I think I'm going to go- "Drive safely" What I really wanted to say was 'make sure you got enough gas to get home' but I chose otherwise. She sat down... silence. "When I told you, you needed gas... did you expect me to take your car down that night and gas it up?" -No- "Now if you had twisted your ankle and had trouble standing, would you have asked me to gas your car?" -I wouldn't have wanted to but yes I would have asked you- "And if you had asked me that night, to run to the station with you, to pump your gas, do you think I would have?" -Of course you would have- "That's my point.... since you did not gas your car, look what happened. And you went off on me, like it was my fault that you.... did not... get gas. TBH... I can't understand WTF we are even having to discuss this." "Oh... and the take out... you were said to be here at 7:30... you weren't, no call, no message... it was near 10 and I concluded you ain't coming."
I know DC understood clearly what I said. She also knew I was not wavering. But she was still upset. But at who??? Take a guess what came next.... -I don't really care about going to the game, it was dad's idea to begin with.- "Guess I'm the dolt with four tickets and no one wants to go" -Go by yourself... or take some friends- "Matter of fact I may see if xxx and xxx want to go (Hangover Crew guys and still wanted to keep one free in case she changed her mind)." -Oh I bet you'd like that.... three wild guys around a ton of younger women- "WTFE....I can't tell you what to think, that's up to you." That was about it....
Hangover Crew couldn't go... only one day notice. That's what happens when some are M or have live-ins n kids. I recalled a girl I went out with earlier this year had a son who loved Auburn. Sent message, she accepted the tickets at what I paid for them, so I did get back the cash for three of the four tickets. The girl asked -But aren't you going too? We don't know how to get there. My son is bringing a friend and they both love sports and... you being a sports writer.....- I explained the situation about DC and she understood but said she'd love for me to go... she'd furnish the car, gas... everything but what I wanted to get at the stadium. Didn't plan on going, asked her to see if anyone she knew would want the last ticket. Friday came n went.... no message from DC. Saturday morning... I thought.... why am I not going to the game because of what transpired. I took her up on the offer.
Had a blast! Saw Toomer's Corner, tried their lemonade, watched the team do their walk, saw the eagle before the game. Got to see the students roll the trees after the win... first time they could do that since the trees were poisoned about ten years ago. Now THAT was college life! Her son wants to go to Auburn... after all I saw, LOL so would I. I did receive a message from DC... -Did you get rid of the tickets- at 8:00 that night. Sent her a pic of me and the two guys, and his mom. -WTF is she?- "His mom." -Don't take you long to find someone else to fvck- "You're making extremely broad accusations based on zero merit" Tirade ensued... "I am willing to talk after you learn to curb your profanity."
Took longer than I thought.... will finish rest later.
BTW.... I do wish for us to work through this. Any other female I had dated since late 2012.... it would have already been ended. 99.9% of the time I am not the one to sling schit; which gives me full rights to not take it from others, 99.9% of the time.
