So, we took the plunge and decided to meet up.
It’s our first date.
Mrs. Newlywed and I are going for Mexican food and margaritas. We’ve been talking about it since before #2 was born and promised we would meet up.
I’m so nervous.
I blow dried my hair, I put on make-up, I even shaved my legs…what am I forgetting?
Oh, what to wear? Maternity clothes are too big. Regular clothes make me look like a sausage. Now, I have to go shopping. You see Mrs. Newlywed is all about preppy. She puts up pictures of all pretty clothes, outfits, and shoes she has. I could put up pictures of my clothes covered in spit up and peanut butter finger prints.
What do we do the first time we see each other? Do we hug? Do we shake hands? Do we do the head-nod thing (gee, I hope not)?
What if I laugh so hard I spit out some food? Will she still think as much of me?
What if I have a huge piece of cilantro stuck on my front tooth? Will she tell me?
What to talk about? I’ve been home with a baby for 4 weeks? Will she get sick of hearing about my kids? And if I don’t talk about my kids, will I talk about my other kids (my students)?
Are you nervous now, Mrs. Newlywed? Are you going to back out?
Really, I think we will hit it off swimmingly and have a great time. I’m really excited about my first IRL meet up! I’ll be sure to report back how it goes!
