Forget Batman V Superman. The real battle is Mate V Date.
Let me explain- I work a job where I am not usually afforded weekend nights off. So tomorrow will be my first Saturday night out in roughly two years.
I had the night planned. A few drinks with a good friend. A good friend who is normally drinking while watching me work (I’m a bar manager/DJ). We didn’t have anything extravagant planned, just a few quite drinks where I’m not the one pouring them.
All sounds easy enough until you go back a few weeks.
In my job you get to meet new people all the time. Most times you form a passing acquaintance for the evening and that’s it. But sometimes you see potential for something more. The latter has been happening for a couple of weeks now. A nice young lady, an interesting and in someways intriguing young lady. I say intriguing , she isn’t, it’s my simple desire to learn more about her.
I’ve not been intrigued by anyone for quite sometime!
Knowing I was working all day last Sunday she cooked me dinner and brought it to my work. A home cooked dinner on a Sunday, for the sheer lack of cooked food on a Sunday in the last few year it certainly was the way to this mans heart!
We chatted until quite late last night when, perhaps mistakenly, I mentioned my upcoming Saturday night off.
“We should go out” she said.
“That would be really good” I jumped to reply.
“Great, it’s a date” she said with some excitement on the word date!
But now I’m in a dilemma, go out with my friend as planned for the first time in two years or take a chance on her. MATE V DATE
MATE V DATE – which will win.
