your Thursday horoscope, Mary!
A pleasant sense of feeling less alone will make up for the busy work you get stuck with today. Look to the afternoon as the highlight of a day. A colleague and you will share a special moment.
Talk about frighteningly accurate.
Last night was the most intense, best date of my whole life. I’m not sure what will come of it, if anything, but the experience was wholly pleasurable.
I asked a co-worker if he wanted to go see a band with me; they were playing at this little hole-in-the-wall place that I’ve always kind of liked. He said yes and I spent the next week wondering if it would really happen. That afternoon he called to make sure I wasn’t backing out on him. How cute! He called in to work that night, just to spend time with me. I was supposed to work until 9 and he was supposed to close the store (around 12:30 or so). So I FINALLY got off at around 11pm, after sweating my ass off all night working near a 500 degree oven with the air conditioner on the fritz, and I called him up.
He came over to pick me up (he drives a badass vehicle) and when he came into the apartment, I was half yearning for and half fearing a kiss. I think we both got really shy all of a sudden, because we flirted but didn’t really make any physical contact at that point. He smelled so good. Oh my god.
He drove us to the bar and we chatted on the way, we get along really well -we’re both Aries’ and are pretty easygoing. At the bar he buys the drinks and when the music starts it’s too loud to talk. We still attempt conversation, managing to have a pretty decent one made up of funny comments whenever there’s a lull in the jammin’.
We left the bar a little before the band finished, each having had two beers, and decided to go for a walk along the river. I hadn’t eaten nearly all day so I was a little tipsy. It was so beautiful outside last night. Not too warm or cool, the air was damp and charged with electricity from the storms that have been (and still are) sweeping around and over us lately. We took the bike path under the Jefferson street bridge (which was lit up and reflected in the river) and ended up sitting on a bench near a little beach behind the library. Huge trees (dogwood maybe?) were blossoming thousands of tiny white flowers overhead and occasionally a little one would fall on us. It was just plain beautiful.
I got a little chilly there, but we were talking and getting along so well I didn’t want to leave. He apologized for not having brought a jacket and we walked back to the truck.
I don’t think I need to go on, but I’ll tell you all a little bit more.
He took me to this place straight out of a movie. A little ledge at the end of a grassy road in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by trees. There was a creek just about 50 yards away and beyond that the airport runways all lit up and sparkling. We talked, told stories about our pasts, watched planes take off and land silently… I would say the whole evening was like sharing a “special moment”.
I’m not going to form any expectations about this guy. He’s been “not interested in a relationship” ever since I’ve known him. I’m not really sure what he wants or what I want, but I think the best thing I can do right now is just enjoy the moment. Last night was just perfect. I think a big part of that was because neither one of us is making any demands or presumptions. Whatever happens, I’m just going to try and roll with it. I just hope he had as much fun as I did.
I can’t stop smiling today. I can’t stop thinking about it.
