I don’t know what I was thinking. Okay that isn’t entirely true. I thought maybe having a nice dinner with another adult would put me in the right frame of mind come Christmas day. Aside from potentially cheering me up I didn’t really think my Christmas Eve date out very well.
This morning the hot European text me and asked if we could meet earlier or next week because his family’s celebration was starting earlier than he thought. I said nextweek would be fine but then he said he still really wanted to go out , we would just have to cut it short because he had to drive to his family’s house. And we’d have to meet earlier than we planned. We agreed to go at 4:00 p.m.
He showed up at my place looking cute as hell and we headed to a local restaurant. Guess what!?!?! It closed at four because it was Christmas Eve. We decided to check another place across the street and it was closed to. We decided to go to a little 24 hour diner to sit and chat for a while. Trying to find a place had taken up nearly an hour of the two we had planned on spending together.
We sat at the diner, drank a couple of beers and talked. We talked about college (he’s pre-med,) our work and being shot. (He was shot during a robbery.) It was a very brief but nice date. We made plans to see each other again on Friday. But I still feel a little silly for scheduling a date on Christmas Eve. I didn’t really think that one through.
And yes, I kept myself to myself.
