Strangeness goes unrewarded. This crowd is more conservative than you expected. As long as nobody is actively seeking to suppress you, you can stand being the oddball for another day.
I know I'm an oddball, so this comes as no surprise to me.
I found out from my cousin Sonia that the night the lovely young drunk boy told me I looked like Liv Tyler (Which just proves how drunk he was.) That not only did lovely drunk boy want to sleep with me, but there were 2 - count 'em - 2 other boys that thought I was very nice, and wanted to sleep with me as well. So after 3 years of nobody being interested in me, on the one night I had three options??? Now - this just makes me laugh until my eyes bleed.
Firstly 'causes I was lookin' a mess that night. I had changed into my pj top, so I wasn't wearing a bra, and had put over the top over my PJ's my 'grandfather cardigan'. And this drove the fella's wild??
Sceondly 'cause I gave up sex for Lent. A lesson for everyone; if you want to have sex, make a pact that you won't have any.
But out of the three fellas, there was one I really enjoyed talking to. Not lovely drunk boy - cause he was too drunk, and I found out the next day he had a girlfriend (not impressed with him there. I wish my cousin had told me on the night; I would have ripped him a new one.). Not Dom, 'cause he was way too drunk. Spewing up all over the place. Yuck. Pete was nice. After everyone went home and I was cleaning up he was sitting in his car waiting to get sober before he drove home. I invited him back in for coffee, and we sat on the front steps for about an hour drinking coffee and talking. Just talking. It was very nice. I didn't find out until the next day that he told my cousin he was keen about me, so I was really just enjoying his company. I wish I had asked for his phone number. He did ask me out for drinks the next time I'm in town, and I said yes to that. I have no idea when I'll be back in Adelaide, but I shall have to see if I can meet him for drinks when I do.
