I don't know what got into me but if you remember I have a "special" friend....well, she mentioned in passing something about going steady. I, being the young pup I am, didn't know what that meant so I looked it up. STEADY -- noun -- a person of the opposite sex whom one dates exclusively; sweetheart; boyfriend or girlfriend. I wasn't so sure about this so I went to ask an expert -- that would be Mike. After all he has been married to Beth for like 150 years. He said that his take on it was that if you like someone and ask them to go steady it's like being a faithful friend. I thought, well I could do that. So I wrote a letter to my "special" friend and asked her to go steady. I am not going to disclose her name because if she says no then I will be embarrassed.
Later in the day I told Mike what I had done and he said he forgot to warn me that girls are WAY different than boys! Well, I knew THAT! He said no not just that way but they even think differently and that I need to be very cautious so I didn't upset them....WHAT? Why did he leave THAT out! WHAT DID I GET MYSLEF INTO? Oh dear! I am so scared! Not only am I afraid she will say no, but I am also afraid she will say yes! If it's no -- I'll be embarrassed and will think I ruined our friendship. If she says yes -- I will be afraid I will do something to upset her!
Well, time will tell! Until then I think I will just lay here with a pillow over my head and try not to think about it! Happy thoughts, happy thoughts, happy thoughts....
Later -- Remington -- hey, Treat keeper -- I'll have another....make it a double -- out!
