Rachel gets an 'F' in dating?

You are probably wondering how this is so. Just to let you know, it is possible. I should have my dates fill out comment cards after an evening with Rachel....nah! I am pretty sure I can sum it up for myself accurately. I am getting pretty good, or at least I thought I was.....

I have a busy schedule right now, and so my week fills up before it even begins. I love to stay busy, and so I thought I'd be able to handle it all. My date last night (who will remain nameless) kept trying to set up a time for us to get together, and after a couple of phone calls, pushing the pick-up time later each call, he picked me up at 8. At that point, I had already subtracted 10 points from my dating score card. Tardy flakey girls are not acceptable. I also, being exhausted, showed up in a hoodie--minus 5 points. We were eating dinner and I ran into a friend of mine, guy (who will also remain nameless), and chatted, cutting off my date as he spoke, for a couple of minutes (wasn't quite sure what to do, so I subtracted 10 points). My poor date was probably puzzeled by the look on my face as I kept trying to assess the damage of the night and where I was standing, point wise. I thought I was free and clear when I sat down to watch Batman Begins. As the movie progressed, and the plot thickened, I found myself enjoying the storyline and Christian Bale. Next thing I knew, I woke up to the credits running across the screen.....AHHH! I fell asleep! I didn't even know what happened to Batman and Rachel and my poor date didn't even know what happened to me. At that point, I just had to apologize over and over. If you are reading this, date who is to remain nameless, I AM SO SORRY!!! This morning I woke up and deducted 25 points for my movie behavior. My poor poor date.

Pretty sure if we add that up I'm at 50%. Pretty sure that's a failing grade. Pretty sure I am going to have to try again until I perfect it. Pretty sure the past 9 years of my life have been spent with scenarios like this one. Pretty sure that's why my ring finger is still bare, and I am pretty sure I still have several lessons to learn.........pretty sure!

At least you actually fell asleep for real on your date. I had to fake asleep once while we were living in the house together. the girls in our cul de sac tried setting me up with some guy and it was so bad I actually pretended to fall asleep so I could go home!!! I hope you get a passing grade on your next date!!!!

I bet you get straight A's, but you might get the rare F. We need to go on a date and and I expect an A. An A for Action. :)hehe Seriously, we need to fit me in your crazy schedule. ~ Mala

This cracks me up! The thing with you is the boys will take you out no matter what grade you give yourself.

remember that one time when we went and played laser tag and then watched a movie? I'm pretty sure we BOTH fell asleep on that date...whoops! It didn't help that the guys were lame either...

Hey Rach! It's Meg (from Santa B). I found your blog through blog stalking. Can I stalk yours now? :) Haha jk. Seriously though, how have you been? Are you still at Santa Barbara? Oh and I'm pretty sure you do NOT get an F in dating. I have the same problem falling asleep during movies. I don't think you can put one in without me dozing off.
