Andrea has been wanting to set set Aaron up with one of her friends, Jen. Jen lives in Orem... blah I freaking hate going down to Utah County. I really don't spend much time down there, and it's nothing against the people specifically, but the instant I get past the Point of the Mountain it is as though defensive driving has never been taught to anyone. Four lanes on the freeway, and everyone MUST drive the exact same speed. It's honestly like entering the Twilight Zone. As though some power or force or magical curse makes every human being who sits in a car, stupid... except for me. Yes, that has nothing to do with anything except... What the hell Utah County? But, I digress...
So Jen and Andrea decide to make us dinner at Jen's apartment. Jen, is cute, I wouldn't call her hot, but then she's not really my type. She is short, has strawberry blond hair and is pretty curvy. I would use words like stout, big-boned, and voluptuous to describe her (well, not to her face). She's not at all fat, don't get me wrong she was very cute. In fact too bad Calvin was off with Brittany, because this Jen girl is exactly his type. I tend go for taller, skinnier, girls. One's where I might occasionally notice a rib cage and are likely to never be described as "chesty". Andrea for example is my type... tall and thin. Again, I digress...
Okay so Aaron and Jen are hitting it off really well... like, I swear if Andrea and I weren't there they would have replaced the Book of Mormon between them with an Articles of Faith Bookmarker. Aaron doesn't really have a type, he's just horny, and from the looks of things so is Jen.
We decided to watch a movie. Calvin's older brother recommended "Say Anything". He said it was the greatest romantic comedy ever made. It was pretty good, and it was kind of cool to see the dad from Martian Child look like he was my age. Aaron and Jen are sharing a Lazyboy and Andrea and I snuggled on the love seat.
"Say Anything" is rated PG-13. Somewhere in the middle of the movie there is a scene where the two main characters have just had sex in the back seat of the car. We don't see them actually having sex, they are just lying there, all sweaty with fogged up windows. You know they're naked but don't see anything but some shoulder and chin. (I'm trying to paint how un-offensive this scene was. Very PG 13... Maybe even PG.) I looked at Andrea during this scene. She wasn't watching. She had purposely taken her attention away from the scene simply because it wasn't wholesome. Like she didn't want those images in her head. It was a quiet and subtle action. An action she didn't intend for me or anyone else to notice.
Here I was, again, with the guilt. Who was this girl? What was I doing with her? How was it that I was with someone who wanted nothing to do with the image of an afterthought of an un-chaste act? Also, she didn't impose those feelings on any of us. She just decided that it wasn't for her. I was losing focus on the movie until Jen abruptly got up off the chair. She stood and looked at Aaron, then went to the bathroom. She was gone for a while. I was certain she was taking a poo or something, and was happy to be distracted from Andrea's perfection.
Jen returned and did not sit next to Aaron. She sat on the floor sort of by him. He didn't move. He was frozen on the chair. The movie ended and we left. Aaron and Jen did not really hug or anything they just said goodbye. It was weird. We drove home, and Aaron said he wasn't really "into" her.
After dropping Andrea at home she sent me a text saying that Jen thought Aaron had violated her. That he had "grabbed her." I was sitting in the room with them and it didn't seem too crazy to me... I made fun of Aaron and he of course denied it and said she was a crazy B. I'm sure if Aaron did "grab" something he felt it was solicited, I mean she was all over him. Ha ha ha, those two are sitting there, fondling each other. While I am being humbled by Andrea's example. Figures.
