I currently still am off work until the 7th and so is my friend Seraphin. His girlfriend Lara unfortunately isn’t so she naturally doesn’t go out with us that much these days.
Yesterday we went to a pub near where I life and had a couple of drinks. I haven’t drank any alcohol since the car crash but one of my New Year’s resolution is that I leave the past behind, in whichever way. So I decided on having a Margarita – it tasted awful.
However and even though alcohol might not be a good think to turn to to get over something, it did feel good. I am not planning on being an alcoholic sometime soon – I couldn’t get myself to drink that much. One drink was enough anyway.
Shortly after I felt quite tipsy and Seraphin laughed a little at me. When he excused himself to go to the bathroom a good looking man made his way to our table where I was waiting for my friend to return.
I guess I couldn’t repeat our conversation even if I wanted because of that stupid cocktail.
He introduced himself and asked what “a young, pretty woman” was doing in that pub all evening and that he thought that my “boyfriend” was not the cleverest to leave me alone with crowd of men all over the place.
Frankly, I think the way he was hitting on me was both, blunt and somehow elegant – but nevermind.
We exchanged a couple of words and he gave me his card saying he’d love to take me out for diner. Then – thanks heaven – Sera came back. Raising an eyebrow he questioned me about the guy, who just made his way back to a group of (apparently) friends.
At around 1 a.m. we decided to call it a night and he walked me home. I had my hands in my pockets because of the chilly temperatures at night and felt the card the man had given me. I was about to throw it into a litter box that was just standing there when Sera caught my hand.
“Don’t do that. Just think about it and maybe give that guy a chance.” That was all he said.
So I kept the card.
And I don’t know what I am supposed to do. It’s been years since I went out with a guy.. the first and last being Conlan.
Maybe I’ll give that guy a call. Maybe I won’t. It just feels weird.
