Grumpiness

As you may have noticed, for the past, erm, 13 days, I have been studiously avoiding writing about a certain someone. As you may also have noticed, I have been largely unsuccessful, and have decided to mark PFM (or whatever we've been calling it) as a total flop.

Now, many of you may also have heard of Counties, which is a girl-ask-guy dance that takes place in- say it with me- January. Not October. Not November. Not even December. January. However, for some strange reason that is mostly unknown to me, the girls of our grade have decided to start asking people. Within of a week of starting school, it was suggested by three different people that I should ask Mario. I decided that there was no way in hell that I was going to do anything in September.

Certain other people, however, decided that they would. This is the crux of my post: as of right now, Mario is set to go to counties with Rachel.

Rachel. Rachel. Seriously, Mario, what the hell?

I spent most of the afternoon freaking out over that question. It was only recently (right now) when I received a news update from Kathrya (courtesy of Krystal, the elevator-taking gossip fiend in my English class), who says that Rachel asked him in front of a large crowd, and he doesn't actually want to go with her, and Krystal was planning on telling Mario to tell Rachel that he has a girlfriend who goes to another school, but I have a feeling that he won't, and that he just didn't want to hurt her feelings, and it's all like a twisted death spiral of awful doominess.

Ahem. Anyways, the idea of Mario and Rachel has left me severely grumpy for most of the afternoon. Operation Forget Mario has been rendered void due to severe jealousy on my part. Pity, that.

ALL IS NOT LOST!

i overheard their conversation (it took place in science research), and i believe the conversation was also the time of mario's realization that counties exists. just to put that out there and put a spin on things.

the fact that I missed this, while in the class, is kind of sad. However, it does mean that I will need a play-by-play from you in the very near future.

do you still want me to tell you what happened? i didn't really want to bring it up unnecessarily.

Tea said...

oh, yes! I forgot to ask!

i was sitting there, skimming some articles about my second project topic (yes, I now have two projects), and I sort of heard Mario talking, but I didn't know what he said. Then, Rachel started to say, "It's kind of like prom, except..." and it got too noisy for me to hear the rest of what she said. He said, "OK, that sounds fun. Let's go." He didn't sound especially excited, but relatively okay about it all.

After this shocking revelation, I wasn't really able to concentrate, so I went over to tell Krystal, who is friends with Mario (and considered asking him as well) and could theoretically confirm what I believed had just happened. She asked Paul (nickname I made up, Middle Eastern, sits with Mario) if Rachel had asked Mario to Counties, but he refused to tell her anything. She eventually just asked Rachel and told me.

I take that back. I didn't want to know.

well here's the thing tea - it doesn't really matter whether she goes with him to counties or not. first off, you said you weren't even sure if you wanted to go anyway, and second, counties certainly does not define a relationship. you will have plenty of opportunities for mario-time in the future. so he's tied up for one day. there's heck of a lot of other days!
