I love that commute
So yesterday was pretty typical, well until the T ride home last night. I was just sitting on the T minding my own business, when this girl comes over and just starts talking to me. Since that never ever happens to me, I talked back to her. We had quite a conversation and got so involved in chatting she missed her stop at Wellington. So upon getting to Oak Grove I offered to give her a ride back to Wellington station. We got in the car and headed towards Wellington, when it hit me that maybe I should ask her if she wants to go to dinner, seeing as it was about that time and I was quite hungry. So I asked and she said she would love to. We went up to Pacini's on route one in Saugus and had a great dinner. It is amazing how good the food is there, though I do have to admit that the waiter wasn't very good, I hope he was new, because otherwise he just has no ability to learn. After eating we ended up just sitting there and talking for a few hours, I found out all about her, including her name which is Sydney and her age 26. It turns out she lived in Merrimac for about five years and actually went to Pentucket, weird huh? So after closing the tab we hopped back in the car and once again we headed toward Wellington. Once we got there I thought for a minute, "What would John Do?" Since being the nice guy and chickening out when it comes to girls hasn't worked at all I decided what the hell, do the opposite of what you think. So I went for it and actually kissed her. Yeah can you believe it me sucking it up and actually kissing a girl on the first date. Logic then began to rush back in my brain and I decided to leave it at that for now, don't want to ruin a good thing. I know the guys are going to kick my ass for it, but it is what I felt I had to do. We exchanged numbers and said good bye for the night. Apparently she is a great skier and might come up to Bethel this weekend. Wow what a commute. Finally life imitates film, just like I thought it would.
Now I am sure all of you Keegan relationship skeptics are going to be shaking your heads and saying, "Here we go again.", but perhaps this time it will be different. Why do I think it will be different? Well her career is well under way as a web designer and she lives in Lynnfield, which is relatively close. Now of course talking about this at all is jumping the gun, but I need to shut down the skeptics early. I apologize for my feet first approach, but apparently it is just the way I work. It's about time shit started going my way.
If you ever get close to a human
And human behaviour
Be ready to get confused
There's definitely, definitely, definitely no logic
To human behaviour
