I went out to dinner with my family tonight (mom, dad, sister and her hubby, their 2 kids, and my sisters hubbys parents) to a semi fancy resturant, but right after we got out appetizers and I got a beer the power went out. I'm in cincinnati, so right now that wasnt a surprise but we ate our appetizers and went down the road to Larosa's to get some food. There we were sat by a cute girl who I immediately made eye contact with and smiles were exchanged. It was about 9 o'clock and they closed the dining room at 9:30, but we were sat anyways. Not long after we got our pizza we were the only people in the place, so I finished my pizza and picked up my niece Reese. I made my way up to the front where this cute waitress was standing and opened with something about there being power. One thing led to another, my family had checked out and was leaving, so I told her I had to go and asked if she wanted to go out sometime. She said "sure" with a smile, so I took her phone number and name and told her I'd give her a call. I'm pretty satisfyed that I was able to engage a conversation with someone of the opposite sex to the point where I didnt feel to unconfortable, and left with a phone number and maybe a chance at a date. Sorry for the novel I've just written, I'm just really happy I was able to break my slump of self consciousness and come out of my shell a little. Now I just have to call and set up a date How long should I wait Vag? I don't want to call her tomorrow, but maybe friday and ask if she's busy saturday night?
