One of my closest friends birthday was on Monday. She wanted to go shopping in Buffalo for the weekend for her birthday. It wasn’t very imaginative, but it was her birthday so no complaints from me. I just go with the flow….most of the time.
We left on Sunday, so I had to take Monday off from work. We decided to do an overnight thing so that we could leave early on Monday, which worked perfectly cause I was home by dinner time. Anyways, as usual, I’m shopped out. Birthday girl is famous for her endless amounts of shopping and spending. And, what’s funny is that we just went to Buffalo 2 months ago and she was still able to spend over $200 at Target. I don’t know how she does it. The only shopping I want to do after this weekend is grocery shopping.
It was good bonding time though. I got caught-up with my friend whom I haven’t seen in awhile and birthday girl confessed to me her new crush. We were having the best burgers at Fuddruckers (seriously, the best) and she says to me “I like that guy from the Montreal office”. This is the guy that she tried to set-up her ex-assistant with but it didn’t work out. Oh, the tangled web we weave.
I wasn’t surprised by her confession, I suspected that she would end up liking him, which is one of the reasons why I thought her set-up was a bad idea. And she had told me about this situation that happened between them awhile back, which made me think he was interested in her (which he is), and her in him, but she denied it, as one does when they can’t admit their own feelings. Anyways, distance is still a problem with this guy and he’s already pointed out her negative attributes, he’s starting off well, isn’t he?
What do I think? It doesn’t matter, because I’m just glad my friend is engaged in something other than shopping, stressing out about her family life, money and the next great lip balm she wants. She’s already negative about the whole situation, so I’m not going to add to it, because its nice to see her excited (yet negative, I know, its crazy) about something other than the usual. I think its good to take some risks because you never know what will happen.
