How It Happened...

Slice of Life Challenge - Day 23 - hosted by Two Writing Teachers

Her: Come with me to visit the guys!
Me: I don't even know them.
Her: It's ok! You'll like them. They are a fun group of guys.
Me: You just want to go see Joe. Isn't he the guy you went to prom with?
Her: Yes. I still like him! I'd like to go out with him again.
Me: Isn't he your cousin? Didn't you meet him at a family reunion or something?
Her: Yes but it's not gross like that or anything.
Me: Uh, is he or is he not your cousin?  [perverse pleasure...hassling a close friend, all in good fun]
Her: Yes but it's only because his grandma is my grandma's cousin.  She's adopted and then there is a divorce and a remarriage and blah, blah, blah.  We are only TECHNICALLY cousins, not for real cousins.
Me: Sounds like cousins to me.  You do call his sister your cousin pretty willingly, don't you?  How is he any different?
Her: Easy. He's nice, he's hot and he's a guy.  So, are you going to come visit with me or not?


Her: So, what did you think? They are all so nice!
Me: Yep, they're nice - seem like fun guys.
Her: Which one did you like?
Me: I didn't know this was a date.
Her: It's not, buy come on...which one?
Me: Well, obviously you have your eye on Joe [and he's way too sarcastic for my taste]. Steve is nice.  Doug was pretty cool.  But, I'd definitely pick Bill. He seems like my type...quiet, funny, nice, cute.
Her: I KNEW you were going to say that! I thought you would like him. I think he liked you too!
Me: MmmHmm...we will just call you Little Miss Match-Maker now. 


Friend: Hey, guess who is in my Bio class?
Me: No idea - who?
Friend: Joe, Steve and Bill!
Me: Huh, nice!  So, are they smart?
Friend: Seem to be.  They are so funny!
Me: Yeah, I hung out at their dorm once...it was fun.
Friend: One of them likes you.
Me: Uh-huh.
Friend: No, really!  Joe asked me to ask you if it would be ok for Bill to call and ask you out?
Me: What is this, junior high?  I think Joe is making that up.  Probably thinks you are pretty gullible.
Friend: Ok...maybe...but just in case, is it ok for Bill to call you?  Can I give him your number?
Me: Yeah, sure.


Stay tuned for Part Two -- tomorrow!


  1. I see I am not the only one who indulges in perverse pleasures.
    I sense a love story with a happy ending heading our way tomorrow.
    The dialogue written like a play script is a great style. Fun post today!

    1. No, you aren't the only one. I chuckled as I added that in and thought of your post!

  2. Have you been eavesdropping? This is so funny, & so much like I remember, even years & years ago. You've made me curious about who this is-your daughter? Is it made up? What fun!

  3. This was so much fun to read. Like a window into someone's world. Feeling like a fly on the wall while I read, and can't wait for part two!

  4. I am such a sucker for "how they met" stories. Look forward to hearing part II.
