Being Bold

I polled a few friends and they all agreed I should reach out to him (I've decided to nickname him Funny Guy, because he really does make me laugh) instead of agonizing over whether he would contact me first. I decided to text him, rather than call or email, because text is short and instant and I didn't want him to have to think too much about a response and then get scared off.

Paprika: "I had fun the other night. Next time let's try wine instead of beer. Beer kicked my ass for the whole day yesterday."

Funny Guy: "Me 2. It was bottles! Only draft does me in. Dirty pipes."

P: "Ha ha dirty pipes. Sounds like something a doctor should check. Or a rock band. If you're free tomorrow night, wanna hang out? I'll bring wine."

FG: "Might have 2 b next week. I'm tucking in my boys tomorrow & then out of town until Monday."

Me: "Ok. We'll touch base soon. How's your son's eye? Hope he's ok."
(His wife texted him while we were out saying his son may have an eye infection)

FG: "Ya he's good. Ended up being fine. Talk 2 u early next week."

Good right? He's not blowing me off. He was specific about when he'd get in touch. I figure unless he's a total douche bag, he actually will talk to me early next week.

So while riding that wave of courage, I decided to email Mr. David. Yes, I obtained his email address through my friend E.

Hey David,

Since you've been in a Showcase before, I was wondering how partners are picked? And also, would you be open to being my partner for the routine if we end up performing it?

I know I probably drive you nuts most of the time, but I promise I'll be a good girl, learn all my steps and practice real hard.

I like dancing with you and I think I can learn a lot from being partnered with you.

Let me know what you think, and please feel free to tell me to take a hike if you don't want to be my partner. I promise I'll only cry a little bit and not in front of you.

Paprika :)

Hi Paprika,

Well, you have also been in a showcase! The White Tie and Tiara Ball was a showcase. Nicole picks the partners, just so you know.

And I don't know where you got the idea that you drive me nuts most of the actually drive me nuts all of the time :) :) I'm kidding!!!!! I have said before that you follow very well.

There's lots of dancing at the socials...every other Thursday. That's where the truly dedicated practice what they have been taught :) :) :)

If I don't see you tomorrow, I'll see you next week.

Mr. David

Well, I'm glad to know that I drive you nuts all the time. That's actually been my true goal. Now that I've reached it, I am left feeling empty and without purpose. :)

Your persuasive powers have convinced me to go to the social tonight. It better be totally awesome or I will have to hold you personally responsible. :)

See you later tonight.

Paprika :)

I think I may wear the same outfit I wore when I met up with FG. Ha ha ha. Wouldn't that be funny - going from a 13 month drought to twice in one week. I still have yet to take care of the hair situation....
