Time and Time again

Studied last night with Ariel. I love helping her learn something. It makes me feel good. While driving her home, I apparently didn't properly use my signals, so I got pulled over by a motorcycle cop. He asked if I had been drinking. Luckily, I hadn't (cause I don't drink!) and so he let me go with a warning that I need to use my turning signals properly.

At Ariel's house, we sat on the porch and talked. Although I think we bonded quite a bit (she said I was the coolest guy she knows), she also told me that she didn't really think she was ready to settle down. It wasn't like I asked her. It was more like we just talked about it. Kind of the DTR (Define the Relationship) that never was. It's too bad cause I like her. I gave her a kiss on the side of her forehead and then left. What else am I supposed to do? Wait around forever in the hopes that she will change her wild ways and choose life with me? Should I just walk away? My brother said the other night "I have been told of a certain sea snake which has a very unusual method of attracting its prey. It will lie at the bottom of the ocean as if wounded. Then its enemies will approach, and yet it will lie quite still. And then its enemies will take little bites of it, and yet it remains still."

  1. I totally agree about my kids comments being the best part of the blog. It's good to know they're aren't being wasted over there on the side. My kids are freakin' hilarious.
    Since you said it's okay and it looks like I agree with you, I'm going to comment on this. We had some friends who did the study date thing for a year or so. Then I said, You have got to mix it up or it's totally going to die. You have to do fun things! They had a few other bumps down the road, but they did eventually get married.

    And also, I wouldn't take the not wanting to settle down thing as too much of a bad sign. I went from not ready to ready in an instant. I still remember the exact moment.

    Are you going to come up to visit while the kids and are there? We'll all be disappointed if you don't...
