Simon's Blog - March 23, 2004
So... I went on that date with Kara. Me and Ben met up with her, Zoe, and two other peeps from our school at the mall and we saw Starsky and Hutch. It was funny. To tell ya the truth, I kinda only half paid attention. I was too busy thinking about what Kara was doing and whether she was laughing. She sat right beside me and we shared a bag of popcorn.
Go_Leafs_Go wrote me and suggested we grab a bite after the flick, so I suggested we all go for burgers. Well, turns out Kara is a vegetarian. Oops. But before I could feel like a loser, she suggested we go to this burrito place across the street from the mall. Turns out Mexican is her fave food. Anyway, only me, Kara, Ben and Zoe went for food. It was cool cuz it was like a real double date or something. I bought Kara's food, which she thought was super nice of me. (Yeah, it was). Everything was going awesome - she and I had tons to talk about like skateboarding and music (she digs Eminem and Jurassic 5 too). But then, Miguel and his stupid buddies showed up. Just my luck, my annoying, older brother picks the very same restaurant to eat in.
Man, he's a jerk! He came right over and started blabbing about how I'm his little brother and I wet the bed until I was 10 - which I so did not! He told Kara that I learned everything I know about skateboarding from him. He doesn't even own a skateboard. Loser! Luckily we had to go (Zoe and Kara had to be home by 10pm) so he didn't get to say too much. But man, I wanted to deck him.
I walked Kara back to Zoe's where she was sleeping over. We hugged for a long time and it was kinda weird because I think she thought I was going to kiss her, but I played it cool instead. Ben told me to not let her know how much I like her right off cuz she'll get bored. (And Ben's had two girlfriends, so he knows what he's talking about). I am going to call Kara later tonight cuz I haven't really seen her since the date, except in geo class but we couldn't talk.
On the homefront, Miguel won't stop walking around the house laughing and saying stupid things about me being in love with Kara. Mom actually threatened to ground him if he didn't lay off, but she's not much better. She thinks it's "adorable" that I have a "special friend." UGH! Anyway, dad doesn't care about my social life - he's too bent on my school life. He knows I have a science test and he's giving me the whole "pass or you're grounded" speech again, so I better go study. Not all of us are as nerdy as my science fair winning friend, Sindy. LOL - kidding, Sin!
