New Years Day

Ok, so the holidays have me sleeping really weird hours and its killing me. I woke up yesterday morning(10) checked my email and Kelly had sent out an email asking who wanted to go shopping. I quickly replied ok, I mean that beats cleaning or studying math. Manda met up with us and as we made our way throughout most of the store without any major deals we met up with one of Kelly's friends Brittany. Once we finished shopping we decided to get lunch. Instead of going to the food court we went to Olive Garden. I think I laughed threw the entire meal. So as we were getting ready to leave I wrote my number on the receipt, the waiter was tall, blonde, and lanky, so why not. I am not one to be forward or anything but its just something I randomly do, kinda like building courage, baby steps. I feel safe doing this because they never call back, but it gets me out of my comfort zone, plus we were in Sandy so nothing would ever come of it. Well as we left we saw that Pier1 was having a sale so we stopped in. Umm, marking it up just to mark down doesn't mean its a sale!!! Then all the sudden my phone rang. I answered and quickly distanced myself from Manda and Kelly, they like to make awkward situations and I embarrass easily. Plus, I also have a phone voice which if you can believe, is an octave above my original tone, think a 13yr old squeaky girls voice. It was the waiter from OG. Umm, you are not supposed to call!!! so we talked for a bit and then he said he needed to get back to work and he would call me back. So we left Pier1 and Brittney said she wanted to hook me up with her brother in law (Lib I guess people are going to make '09 my year, haha)he called and we are going out tonight. Kelly and I dropped Manda back off at her car and we started back to Lehi(Kelly's house). As we were getting off the exit I got another call. It was Him. We started talking and he fed me the line, oh your pretty... crap, and then was like well I wanted to let you know up front but I am married. I silently thought, MARRIED?? why are you calling me then??, I didn't see a ring, did anyone look for one? I am usually a Jedi master at spotting those. He then followed up with well my relationship is going through ups and downs and this was the the shock of the day..... He said, So with that said, How do you feel about pursuing something?? umm, are you serious?? I then replied, well I wouldn't want someone to do that to me behind my back, so no, I don't want to pursue anything. And thus ended the conversation. Dude, if you are married and someone leaves their number you take it as a complement and throw it away! You don't act on it. And you DEFIANTLY don't call back that quickly. So I have learned my lesson. But all in all it was one of the funniest days. On another but related note when we all go shopping we seem to get goofier that usual and make fun of the clothing. Here is a pic of something Manda found. It is reversible!!!

Wow, some married men are gross. And creepy. Good for you for rejecting him! Unlike what some people would do (Diane).
