My friend set me up during the Passover seder we co-hosted on Friday night. He brought his sister and potato vodka. He was confused as to why I wasn't drinking but I kept things simple and blamed my stomach bug from a few weeks ago. But he's 24 so anyone who doesn't drink or stay up till 3am seems just a little off to him. He gave me looks when I was drinking decaf tea towards midnight. But he did laugh at my jokes.
When he joined my friend and I out bowling last night I learned more about him. The more I learned the less I wish I knew. Enjoy:
He lives at home...almost 2 hours outside the city by train.
He hates trains and the city. And he hates smart phones.
He's not in his off/on again set building job right now because due to druken pole jumping in Puerto Rico he broke his wrist.
He's a good bowler and a good dancer. He didn't finish college.
He thinks dinner dates and dating in general is awkward. But he did tell me to text him when I got home and offered me cab money.
He hates cabs. And buckles up when he's in one.
He loves rollercoasters and building beach bombfires.
But doesn't know who the villian was in Ghostbusters.
Needless to say I had a couple drinks last night but only a couple. He was semi impressed with me ordering a JD and coke. He paid for my drinks.
After three weeks of not drinking I have the clarity to know that there's too much on this list that I just don't want. But my friends seem to think getting on a 24 year old's motorcycle is exactly what I need right now.
I laughed at him when he asked me if he should get my number from my friend.
I texted him when I got home and he texted me back 'I had fun to.'
Not sure if he'll be teaching me anything in the near future but at the very least he's getting some grammar lessons. He better be a good kisser.
