Anyway. I continue to wonder if we're on a romantic track or not. I'm way up close so I can't see the big picture. But he must...we must like each other, else why all these oh so official dates? (In emails, the word "date" has been used!) I think I need to get him around my friends. Back in the day I would have Audrey meet the guys I liked as early as possible. It was totally a test. I needed to see what Audrey thought of them but more importantly I wanted to see how they reacted to Audrey, who was notorious for giving a bad first impression. Could they appreciate her despite her awkwardness? I'm sure Bert would. That's a good thought experiment. I'd still like to see him around some other people.
Is that what I do next? Invite him to diner with a friend or two? Hmm. I love/hate that I'm spending so much time thinking about so much nothing. I'm not even sure how much I like him! Sheesh. Charming or pathetic? You tell me.
Here are a couple of pics I took the other day--the first is the soon to be grocery store a couple blocks from my house. Unbelievable.
This is from the metro. Something mysterious is happening behind that door...
Grateful for: something to think about.
