"Will You Go Out With Me?" He Says, Hanging From The Ferris Wheel. Only Not Really At All. Since He Would Never Do That.
We went to a carnival last night and it was super satisfying. Story time: When me and the bf met 3 years ago, we hung out twice and then it was official: I was his and he was mine. I know. Very Game of Thrones. And then sure we went to the movies and dinner for entertainment and sustenance since we need that as humans, but we never really went on dates. And that's not a bad thing, especially being who I was at the time; I was in a really messed up place, fresh out of multiple therapy sessions due to my previous person (technically relationship, but I don't refer to it as such since it was pure shit). All I knew then was I was lonely, had been my whole life, needed someone stat--but only someone I could trust to not treat me like I had been in the past. And the only way I could trust that someone was if they were committed and planned on marrying me one day. (Like I said: Messed up. Lucky for me, the bf was looking for the exact same thing. Otherwise I would probably be alone for so long I would go crazy and throw all my morals to the wind and become a ghostly essence of a person and whore around and die miserable. You know. The only alternative to having a significant other.) Anyway, the point is we've never been on a date. And carnivals are romantic. It's in every love movie. Particularly The Notebook. Now, I didn't make him hang on the Ferris wheel bar so don't give me that look, and anyway he would never do that for me in the first place, no matter how much he loved me, because he's afraid of heights. And also that would probably get him arrested. And killed. Before he would get arrested. But we walked around the park with all the lights flashing and the rides going and we held hands and he won a game and asked me what prize I wanted and I picked the little cow and I named him Piglet, and it was as cliche as it could possibly be and that is all I ever ask in life. So it was wonderful. And plus I've always wanted to go to a carnival because they remind me of Big and The Jerk.
