When Lightening Strikes...

... a metal building, you better hope you are a safe 50 feet away in a car with a friend...!

I have never seen anything like it. I drove to Northfield to visit my friend again and we took a tour of her campus in my car. It began to storm and as we were looking at a building, trying to figure out what it was, lightening hit it! BOOM! Sparks! It was pretty intense.

I didn't say a waord... just drove a little faster. My friend was like, "AHHHH!" Everytime we'd start a new topic of conversation, we'd be like, "Oh my GOD! I can't believe lightening hit that building..."

But, of course, I nearly pissed myself laughing when she launched into a list of possible "What-if's.."

"What if a laundry lady who only makes barely minimum wage was leaning on a wall during her 2 minute break at that moment? Does the lightening go through the walls? Geez, now I'll probably have to go to her funeral and be able to say that I saw it happen..."

But let me back up.

Memorial Day. It wasn't much of a weekend, since I had to work yesterday. So I didn't get to go to P-Town or anything. But I took another "Impromptu Road Trip" to Northfield.

We went on a little picnic at this incredible bluff that's near her campus. And the timing couldn't have been more perfect. We got up there, enjoyed the view, a yummy lunch, each other's company, and got back to the car just in time for the rain.

To escape the rain, we drove to a little town to find a coffee shop, but everything was closed. But we found a total ghetto arcade and played air hockey! I kicked her ass and we were just getting into round two when the power went out.

Bummer. But I'm sure we'll rematch again...!

For the first time in my entire life I was sad to be my age. I've never met anyone who makes me laugh or smile nearly as much as this girl. She's so amazing, but I'm not even going into this because I'm sure she'll see this at some point.

But just to scratch the surface, it makes me sad to be in totally different places in life, yet when we come together, we're on the same plane. I feel like nothing else matters. Everything between us seems so right. Yet when you look at the big picture, it's totally wrong for this point in time.

But I realize how lucky I am that she's in my life. And everything works out the way it's supposed to. So who knows? For now I acknowledge how much I adore her. And I am especially astonished about how she's managed to steal my heart. : ) So she's got her own special place in my life.

M returned today. I can't believe it's been over a week since I last saw him! After visiting my friend I drove to his place. He cooked dinner for us and another friend of his. He's so cute! And he's certainly got me beat in the culinary department!

I'm still confused as to what my heart wants. But right now I'm letting it guide me, moment by moment. I'm confident I'll end up with the right person in the long run...
