This week was not as exciting as last week. Besides inhaling a piece of granola for the second time and "choking" [Ok - It really wasn't choking], I didn't do anything out of the ordinary.
This "Spacer Dog Guy Owner" from the dog park was texting me to get together. Here is how it went:
SDG: [That's for Spacer Dog Guy]"Hey Janie! What are you up to this weekend?"
JGW: [That's for Janie G Winston] "Oh - I think a bunch of us are going to Plan B." [Then thinking to myself, "Is this dude wanting to hang out one-on-one or what? I said I had a group...."]
SDG: [A few days later] Hey Janie! How was your weekend?
JGW: [24 hours later] Good. You?
SDG: Great. I visited family, etc, etc. Play by play. [I don't know you but I am going to tell you all about my wknd] You want to meet for lunch one day this week?
[JGW is thinking - "This is so random! I met him like one time! Do I have some sign on me that says I am looking for lots of dates or what?" I mean, he is cute and all]
So, I am having a drink with my friend and I am telling her about this. How innocent are you people? The advice that I didn't take that was offered to me was:
"He's probably looking to meet new people since he is relatively new in Madison." And I am like, "He wants to go on a date with me."
So, here was my response to him:
"You mean like a date? Because I sorta got a man...."
And forty-eight hours later, realizing I am going to see SDG again really soon [afterall, this is Madison and we go to the same dog park], it occurs to me that I better make sure I didn't offend him.
JGW: Sorry if that was rude.... I just didn't want to lead you on and I am very blunt.
SDG: It wasn't rude. It was just letting me know.
Aha! I knew it! So, the moral of the story is to be forward, people and also I would have to say that the dog park is a good place to meet people. So, make sure you look hot at the park.
And here is my dad several days after I broke up with my former "Mr. Right Now:"
Dad: [That stands for Dad] So, are you making any friends?
JGW: [Thinking to myself, I have a zillion friends. Why is he asking me this?] Oh! You mean like am I dating?
JGW: C'mon just say it! I am having fun. I don't think I really need more friends, per se.
And then came Tattoo Boy....
Here is me in therapy:
JGW: So, I am already talking to this new guy. And you know, I worry because I don't believe in marriage. And it makes me a little nervous.
Therapist: Well, do you get really intense in the beginning?
Therapist: Ok. Well since you are aware of that, you need to be cautious of that.
JGW: Ok. I am fine with that.
And so, I am going home with him this weekend.... [Afterall, it's been at least - what - a few weeks since we started hanging out?]
Other than that, boating was a success this past weekend. We spent the day on Lake Mendota, through the locks to Monona. Very fun times. I think the mad dash from the hair color appointment to prevent aging to the Union to hop on the boat was a success. [I had about 20 minutes notice]. But I packed my bikini to my hair appointment. Just in case.
Sadly, summer will be over in about one month. I am ok with this. Soon, I will be cross country skiing over the lake. And the Halloween party I have been talking about will have taken place. I even had a dream the other night that I was picking out my costume.
Stay tuned for more fun summer adventures.
