Embrace of the Freckles

I was pretty much forced into making a decision last night about who I should pursue. I went out with Carla. We went to a comedy club and the comedian was a lot more off-color than I was expecting. I felt a little guilty laughing, cause Carla wasn't even smiling. She looked pretty uncomfortable. I probably should have left, but I thought he was being pretty funny. I was surprised that the comedian didn't tone down his set since it was a "Utah crowd". I know it seems ridiculous, but I just kind of thought "If they Mormonize the alcohol content in beer, why wouldn't they Mormonize the language and vulgarity in the comedy shows?"

After the show I went with Carla to a park by her house. We were sitting on the swings just kind of talking about all kinds of stuff... then she popped the question. She built up to it by telling me about how Andrea had told her that I had been dating her and Amy. See! This is what I mean! I totally suck at dating more than one girl at a time. Carla was like, "So. Are you going to keep dating us both or are you going to choose one of us?" I didn't tell her this, but I was kind of hoping to date them both long enough to snog them. Then I'd let THAT decide for me. I stuttered something about how it's been hard dating them both since I don't make that much money and my finances are a little strained. Then I decided to just move in for the kill. Usually I wait for green lights, but I was already leaning toward Amy and I figured that if Carla was an awesome kisser, I might rethink my decision.

She totally shot me down, though, which has only happened two other times in my life. I'm normally a pretty cautious predator. I don't move in unless I'm at least 98% sure it'll be reciprocated. This was not one of those times. Carla actually told me that she was gonna wait to see if I kept dating her before she was comfortable kissing me. I almost told her that she wouldn't regret it if she just gave me a go... but I didn't. I decided it wasn't worth it. I like Amy more anyway, I think.

By the way, Jake read my last post and asked me to clarify "cute" vs "not cute" freckles. I think all freckles are cute, but Carla has chosen not to fully embrace her freckles. It's like she's embarrassed by them or something so she uses makeup (base, I think) to cover them up. But I can still see her freckles through her makeup and it's extremely unattractive. You're welcome, Jake. I hope that clears things up for you.

From someone who has a lot of freckles, putting a lot of base on is definitely not the way to go haha

bahhahahahahahaha, re-JECTED by the freckles. Nice. Question- are you going out with Amy just bc she's interested in you, or do you actually like her???

Lyss said...

The best way to get a Mormon girl to kiss you is to tell her You're feeling the Holy Ghost tell you you met in the preexistence. They really like to hear that.

Just let Carla think you've picked her long enough to snog her face off! And at just the right time you can "change your mind" and go with Amy.

Yeah, using foundation to cover freckles is pretty unattractive.
