Yes, today I went to the Fair. Not just any Fair mind you, it was the Woodstock Fair. That's right, The Woodstock Fair! And what a special day it was too. There wasn't a moment when I wasn't surrounded by a cloud of second-hand smoke. How's that sound? :D What? You want to here more? Well then let me continue..... I spent most of the day wandering around the Fair with no real direction. At one point I bought a Pixie Stick that was about a yard long, and got probably one of the greatest sugar highs that I've ever reached by eating it.
But I did have one thing that I had to do. You see, my old High School marching band was set to perform at a certain stage at what I believed to be 11:30 in the morning. So I headed over there and learned that they weren't supposed to perform until twelve. So I decided to just hang around until then. But then.... what did I see? Why, it was the girl that I had a crush on in High School that I never had the guts to go out with!!! Well, upon getting this chance to reunite with her and perhaps get a second chance, I did the only reasonable thing that I could do: I ran.
Soon I discovered that the High School band was performing elsewhere before heading over to the other stage. So I watched them. Then I headed back to watch their other stage, figuring that the danger had passed. And it appeared that it had. I watched the performance from the top of the bleacher, and then jumped down to collect myself and wait for the band to leave. Then, HORROR OF HORRORS! SHE WAS COMING STRAIGHT TORWARDS ME!!! Well, almost straight towards me. It didn't really matter, any possible escape that I had was blocked. Closer and closer she came. It was almost too late! And then, then she spoke! And what happened? Well, the conversation with.... let's call her "Lauren" went something like this:
Lauren: Hey Robbie! :)
Me: Oh, I, um..... hey. :?
Lauren: What's up?
Me: Um, nothing'.
My brain: SAY SOMETHING!!!!
Lauren: So what are you up to?
Me: Uh, college.
Lauren: Oh. Where are you going?
Lauren: Oh wow! I heard you have to be a smarty to get in there!
Me: Um, I guess.
My brain: ASK HER OUT YOU IDIOT!!! NO! DON'T JUST STARE AT HER! NOOOO!! DON'T LOOK AWAY!! ASK HER OUT!!!! SAY SOMETHING!!!!
Lauren: Well, I gotta go. Bye Robbie! :)
Me: Yeah, um, bye.
My brain: Oh, I am SO out of here.....
And then I just spaced out for about three hours. I woke up again at some sort of livestock event. Anyway, this should explain why I've never gone on a date
And then I just spaced out for about three hours. I woke up again at some sort of livestock event. Anyway, this should explain why I've never gone on a date. And if any of you can come up with a better pickup line than "Uh, I, uh, I like your hair," then I envy you.
