Believe it or not, it actually was comfortable to wear this outfit yesterday. The sun was shining, it was 58 degrees, and my legs saw daylight for the first time since October. And then today I got a snow day. So come to Ohio if you want weather whip lash.
On top of the strangely nice weather, that's not all that was odd about the day. I was to meet two of my freinds at the student center for breakfast in the morning, but as always I was running late. I skipped the makeup and just threw on this outfit, didn't even really brush my hair and flew out the door. We talked for a bit and then I got up to get something to eat and a red headed soldier in uniform pulled me aside and told me, " Excuse me miss, I just wanted to tell you how strikingly pretty you are." I was so taken aback by this; no makeup on, early in the morning, so out of the blue. I just stammered a thank you and was super flattered but embarrassed. I got back to my table with my friends and we were there awhile when I saw both of my friend's eyes gaze away from me and to somewhere behind me. The red headed solider came over to our table, got down on one knee to eye level with me and asked me on a date! I was incredibly shocked and overwhelmed--this guy had guts to go up to a girl and her TWO FRIENDS and ask her on a date.
I did end up saying yes, but it's strange because I just never do things like this. Stuff like this doesn't happen to me! I gave him my number and he's supposed to text me about the date, but we'll see. If he doesn't text me, I'll be okay with it. It was just romantic enough to be asked on a date like that in the middle of the student center by a stranger when I was looking pretty rough, he still thought I was beautiful.
Crazy stuff! x
With much love, Lauren.
