I am in such a good mood right now. It’s 2:30 in the afternoon, and as I’m writing this I’m sitting in an airplane, waiting for it to take off and bring me to New Orleans so I can see Dave again. Yay!
If that first paragraph sounds familiar to you, reader, it’s because I wrote almost the same exact thing last Wednesday. And now, less than two weeks later, I am once again on my way to New Orleans to see Dave!
The five days I spent with Dave were great. We went out to eat a bunch, went to bars, chilled at his house, etc. It was nice to see him and confirm our feelings for each other. I mean, I already knew how much I liked him…I guess I just wanted confirmation that after falling so hard so quickly, he still felt the same about me.
And I got it. Things are very good between us.
I also met his son while I was there. In the days leading up to my trip I was VERY nervous about that. I’m not that good with kids to begin with. I’ve only been around a handful of kids any since my brother was young, which was over 20 years ago. Added to that pressure was the fact that this was Dave’s SON. What if Dave thought I was an asshole around kids and decided he couldn’t be with me?
Of course my fears proved unfounded. His son liked me, and I liked him, and Dave was very relieved by both of those facts. I was a little awkward at first, but eventually I remembered how to deal with kids and then I was fine.
When the time came for me to head back to NY, I was sad to be leaving him, naturally, but still really excited about the future of the relationship.
So how is it that less than a week after I left New Orleans, I am now on a plane going back there? Well, Jet Blue was having a promotion in NYC because we’re in a heat wave. Its been over 90 for the past two weeks. Their promotion was that once it hit 90 degrees on a certain day, they would release a promo code that and I was able to get a round trip ticket to New Orleans for only $85!
I’m so excited to be back here, you have no idea. I thought I was going to have to wait until the end of August to see Dave, but here I am!
