I’m one of those weird people who gets herself into awkward or embarrassing situations more often than not. I can’t help it. I have a penchant for it. They make for interesting stories.
So, me and my girlfriend (i know the grammar’s wrong. I’m a rebel. Sue me) were shopping at the mall. We were at it for two hours and my friend had spent the last 20 minutes trying to decide which color to buy for a particular dress. I do NOT have that kind of patience. Plus I was thirsty and starving (i skipped breakfast). So I left her at the store and headed over to the food court for some much needed grub. I felt like Chinese. So I was waiting at the Beijing Bites counter to place my order, when this guy comes up and starts chatting me up. He’s really cute, talks well, dresses well and frankly, I was enjoying the attention. He seemed to be alone and that’s weird, I mean who hangs out at a mall alone? So I ask him and he says he’s with his bro and sis-in-law and he got dragged into shopping for his parent’s wedding anniversary. All’s well and good. We get a table and I’m eating and he’s flirting (I might have flirted a little. It wasn’t my fault. The guy had the cutest smile. What sane girl could resist?).
A while later, and there’s no sign of my friend. So, I look towards the entry gate to see if she’s coming and guess who I see. An ex-boyfriend of mine that i haven’t seen in ages, with this pretty little thing on his arms and he’s walking towards me.
Now, for a little bit of history. I dated this guy back in high school and he was much much older to me. Haven’t we all fallen for the older guy atleast once in our lives? We ended on pretty bad terms and I haven’t heard from him since.
So I see this guy after all these years and he still looks the same. I don’t. I was a nerdy geek back in high school, who didn’t even know what mascara was. Now, I’m superficial and vain, but I look good.
Now, two things happened during this encounter that left me wondering if fate’s playing a cruel joke on me.
1. The cute guy I was chatting up was my ex-bf’s brother.
2. The cute guy I was chatting up was a 17 year-old kid.
The pretty little thing on his arm turned out to be his wife. When did the dude get married? And he didn’t even recognize me at first. I don’t blame him. It’s been 6 years.
So, lets sum up my trip to the mall that I won’t be visiting for a while (scarring memories). My friend is a crazy, annoying shopper. I met my ex-boyfriend, who’s gotten hitched. He has a 17-year-old brother that he caught me flirting with.
Just lovely. *sigh*
I’d love to tell you about the remaining part of the awkward encounter which lasted till I could take it no longer and SOS’d my friend, but it doesn’t get more interesting than this.
On a completely unrelated note, I’m loving that jacket and the belt on Nina Dobrev. The rest of the outfit is kind of meh. Too stereotypically bad girl. I must give credit to Dobrev for the heartless bitch acting though. Very sexy.
