THINGS I'VE DONE IN THE LAST 24 HOURS THAT I'VE NEVER DONE BEFORE

  1. Given my phone number to the super cute guy who randomly started talking to me in line at a Starbucks in LA.
    At first I tried to shut him down, but he was too persistent. But somehow not in an annoying/creepy way? & then we talked for like 40 minutes & he was so cute? & my sister was there & approved (which is MAJOR)?
  2. Not internet stalked said guy.
    Again: MAJOR. This is pretty much my first move when I know the full name of a cute person. But I feel like I need to not with him?
  3. Made my own decision about whether to text him first.
    I admittedly tried to crowdsource this, but there was a 50/50 split & tiebreaker friend is out of the country so that was fruitless.
  4. Ended up texting him first.
    Mostly because the one other time I gave my number to a guy I'd just met he never texted me, but he was a friend of a friend so I ended up encountering him later & it's a long story, but basically it was a fucking disaster & I don't want this to be?
  5. Had about a thousand heart attacks in the hour & seven minutes it took him to text me back.
    Metaphorically. #imanadult
  6. Cleaned a gallon of gravy out of the trunk of my car.
    Unrelated, but it had to be done, due to a hasty decision and the tragic results of a yellow light brake-slamming. I now have the cleanest spare tire well of probably anyone you will ever know.
