Hockey with a side of being bold.

Jul 3, 2013
Hockey season just ended. (Is it bad that I miss it already. Sigh.)
P.S. Congrats Chicago Blackhawks.  I can't be too excited to say that since I am a Wings fan, but well played.  (grrrr)  And what a final game!!!  2 goals in the last minute.  Wow.

Back to the point. This is a story of me being bold.  Once upon a week, when the Wings were still in the playoffs, my friend and I went to the local Buffalo Wild Wings establishment to watch our boys play.  One such evening I arrived before my friend and found a seat.  There I am half watching the game and half listening to this conversation going on next to me. And I hear a plea for help...

"Business casual.  What exactly is business casual."

Never fear!  I will save you!  {Yeah, I wasn't that dramatic, don't worry.} I turn and ask if they would like some input.  Yes.  I soon make friends with the 3 guys sitting there.  They of course are also Wings fans, and we just start chatting and continue to watch the game.  Now comes the fun part.

One of the guys, let's call him Jack, was texting a girl making small talk with the hopes of going on a date.  He asked for my advice on what to say and I gave it to him straight.  Have you gone out with her before. Yes.  Then just ask her out.  Don't beat around the bush, just ask her out.  His friend, let's call him Sam, said that is exactly what he thought.  "In fact, see how easy it is."  He turns to me and asked me out.

True Story.

Maybe this happens to you all the time, but I wasn't expecting that at all.  "Ummm sure, " I said, that sounds fun." 

With my past experience, when things like this happen the guy is usually throwing some strong creeper vibes.  Seriously.  I find some of the weird ones.  Remember Mr. Collins?

This guy didn't seem that way, so we went on a date.  I had a fun time.  And he isn't a creeper at all.  He is a really nice guy.  We ended up going out another time for some geocaching.  A good experience, and I'm glad I said yes and didn't dismiss him right away. 

It was a bold moment.  I am proud of myself. 

This year is the year to be bold.  To stretch myself just a little, meet new people and maybe do some things that are outside of my norm.  I hope this is just the first of many posts that I share with you about my boldness.

The only way things are going to change is if I do something different.  Right. 

And that's it.  He hasn't text me again, so I'm thinking he's not that in to me.  And that's ok.  Like I said it was fun. 

P.S. GO WINGS!!!!!!!

    Um...I don't know. :) I guess I was just waiting to see what kind of story it would play out to be.
