I don’t know how you classify this “thing” I have, but I think it’s like a mini-crush or something. Not the ultimate, obsession crush, but what I might categorize as trivial infatuation. I have these feelings for a girl at school, and life can be rough at times seeing as how she is only in one of my classes, and she doesn’t talk to me much. Well, actually she doesn’t talk to me at all. So really, I’m just a creepy guy who likes a complete stranger.
Last week, however, the stars aligned. She sat one seat away from me. I was all nervous and giddy… ok, I’ll be a little more honest, I better upgrade this crush from trivial infatuation to good vibrations (I will release a love scale one of these days). I listened into her conversation with a friend. Not so much because I am a stalker, maybe a mild stalker, but I only listened because I had nothing better to do:
Girl I Sort Of Like: “Do you know Chad Garret?”
Friend of GISOL: “Chad? You mean Chip?”
FofGISOL: “Yeah, he’s a goof.’
GISOL: “We used to play Mario Kart together -”
At this point, my heart raced. I love Mario Kart. I played it when I was a young teen, and I still play it to this day. She had to be the perfect girl for me. The opportunity to make my move presented itself: I put my seize the day socks on and interrupted the conversation:
Me: “Mario Kart? I LOVE that game!” I exclaimed. I must have been a little too excited.
GVG: “Really? My boyfriend and I play it all the time.”
