Entry #14: No worries now!


It's been while since Becca asked me out and we really haven't had much of a chance to talk. In fact, she's been acting distant and cool (as in cold). I still haven't figured out her reaction. I mean, I thought she said she just wanted to be friends. She did say that when I asked her to the dance. So what is the deal here?

I was running all this stuff around in my head for days now. It was driving me nuts. I tried to talk to Miguel about it, but he said he was sorry, but he was having his own troubles with women. He said that as soon as he straightened things out with Dee he could help me. I'm just not sure I can wait that long.

I sat down in the cafeteria with a package of chocolate chip cookies and a container of orange juice. I know I know it sounds weird. Most people don't drink orange juice with cookies, especially not chocolate ones, but I think it's a good combination. Actually the reason I like it is because it's a snack my mom used to make for me when I'd come home from school when I was in like first or second grade. She tried to get me to drink milk, said it would make me grow, but I never have been into milk all that much. Like not at all. Especially after that field trip to O'Connor's Dairy Farm in Kindergarten and we saw where milk actually came from. Whoa! That did it. So after that I started drinking orange juice with cookies. It really tastes especially good with chocolate chip cookies.

You know we had this neighbor where we used to live. Mrs. Greenfield and she was a big time poker player. Taught me and my brother how to play poker and black jack too. She used to come by in the afternoons to spend time with me and my brother, kinda like a favor to my mom who was working. And she was the only other person I ever met who liked to drink oj with chocolate chip cookies too! Good old Mrs. Greenfield.

So I was sitting there feeling like I knew just as much about the way the world works as I did when I was in kindergarten, which was a whole lot. Then it hit me... again!

Becca wasn't lying or testing me when she asked me out! She really does want to go out with me. And not as a friend, either. As a boyfriend!

Wow! Of all the possible explanations my crazed mind had totally missed the truth... that Becca had meant what she said the first time she said she just wanted to be friends but then she changed her mind! Hey, it happens! And she really did like me in the same way I liked her!

So I went looking for Becca and I found her in the library. I told her I needed to talk to her and we went outside.

Then I just told her what I was feeling. I told her that I understood things now. That I knew how she felt really and that it was really the same way that I felt. I was so sure I was right that I wasn't shy or anything. The wind was playing with her hair and she never took her eyes off of me. I stood there and looked at her too. We both smiled and I kissed her. And she kissed me back. Cool! No worries now!
