Story Time

I recently was having a conversation over dinner with a group of friends. We were talking about dating and when we would let our children date (one couple was also expecting). I started thinking back to high school and was reminiscing about a guy that I dated. The story is so funny that I thought I would share it.

I didn't date much in high school. I had my first boyfriend and first kiss during the latter part of my senior year. I just didn't care about dating someone that I wouldn't consider marrying. During my senior year I did date a guy whose name was Stuart. Our first date consisted of going out to eat on a double date with his parents and then going back to his house and playing a Star Trek game with his parents. I don't know if I've mentioned this before, but I'm a huge nerd...which is probably obvious by the amount of blogging and internet surfing that I do.

We went on a few dates over the course of a month or so. When I finally decided that I didn't really like the guy all that much (not because he wasn't a nice guy, more because we weren't right for each other...ok, and I had a major crush on his best friend...Oops!) I decided to call it off. Now if you know me in real life and especially if you knew me during high school and college then you know that I am vocal and being tactful is not my strong suit. I've worked on that a lot over the last couple years and have grown, but still definitely need some improvement. Back to the story, I guess I wasn't nice to this poor guy when I called it off. He was never officially my boyfriend so I can't really say "broke up." I can't remember the exact scenario of how this played out so I can't tell you what I said but it was apparently mean. I do remember that he called me a few choice words and was pretty upset with me.

Well, it just so happened that we did stay friends through that ordeal and a few months later I was talking with him on a bus going to a Talented and Gifted Club meet. I was asking him about a fish tank that he owned and he told me that one of the fish ate all the other fish and so in honor of yours truly, he named that fish "Lisa".
