Remember when I was bemoaning the idea of gift registries because I had to go to a wedding reception? Well the blessed event was last week and I was anticipating a very quick in and out with a “go you” cheer in the middle. I was relatively certain I wasn’t going to know anyone in the room which was fine because I actually had other plans that night.
I showed up at the reception hall and imagine my complete and utter shock, when there standing right in front of me is GP. Some of you may remember this is the guy that was my neighbor back in Utah that I could never talk to because well, he’s just too cute.
As we’re both standing there waiting to sign the guest book my mind is in hyper over drive at all the things I could say. I mean, this is it. My perfect opportunity that I’ve wanted and it’s finally mine. All these things to say came to mind which I quickly dismissed and then quickly replaced only to keep doing it over and over. I finally just went with the old fashioned “Hi” which he reciprocated.
I’m not sure what happened after that. I don’t know if I was so shocked to hear his voice directed to me, shocked to hear my own voice directed to him, or if my mind was momentarily abducted because the next thing out of my mouth was….nothing. Not one blasted thing. He turned and went on his way and the moment was over. Smooth. Real smooth.
Yep, that pretty much sums it up.
