|BFFs since homeroom of freshman year, btw.|
Fabulous concert aside, the night was marked by both awkward and fun incidents, which reminded me of both why I've run away from Eastern CT and what I miss about it when I'm not here.
1. Standing in the casino when a girl who's approximately 14-17 years old waves her hands in our faces and yells "Hi haters, hi haters!" - This was uncalled for, given the fact that I was engaged in pleasant conversation and in fact not hating on anyone.
2. Running into NFA classmates with whom I made eye contact but never actually spoke during high school - kind of uncomfortable, but so, so typical
3. Being asked "Are you from around here" by someone that I went to high school with - kind of embarrassing
4. Having a really friendly (probably shwasty) stranger insist upon taking a photograph with us on his iPhone because we "looked nice" - kind of awesome. Thanks mystery man, for making us feel awesome!
5. Impromptu two-person dance party next to my mini-van on the top floor of the parking garage - super fun. There are only so many people in this world who would dance on a parking garage with me, especially after dancing at a concert for several hours.
5a. Being told to "f*ck off" and being called ho's by a group of angsty, self-important teens in a station wagon during our dance party - Not nice. If you don't like my dance moves, feel free to either leave me in my dancing happy-place or to teach me something better.
5b. Being told by a girl in a different station wagon that she loved our dance party- awesome. It's nice to see that some people can appreciate our
Consensus: I love my girl and we conquered Saturday night like the champs that we are.
