Confirmation: I Live with a Girl

Saturday, September 24, 2011 Posted by Chris Tung , 3 comments


I love my roommates, and I'm so glad that I'm able to live with Megan--a friend from college who I know has goals and dreams and won't leech up all the electricity and not be able to afford it. It's a really great situation.

Except for when we're getting ready to go out.

Up until this point, I thought, "Wow! Living with Megan is great. There's not a single problem in the world!" And then the below conversation happen, and my epiphany plowed me over like a truck: I live with a girl!

7:48pm.

Me: So, I told Abbee we would be at her place at 9.
Her:Oh..I thought you said we were leaving at 9. I have to shower.
Me: Whoops. My bad. ^^;; oh well then we can leave whenever you’re ready.

(Author’s note) This is where I made my mistake. (/Author’s note)

Her: I’ll just leave with my hair wet.
Me: Okay, sounds good.

8:30pm.

Her: I’m going to straighten my hair.
Me: It’s cool. We’ll just leave a bit late. Maybe get there at 9:10, 9:15.

9:03pm.

Me: It’s nine o clock.
Her: My hair is only this much done [shows me a complete mess].
Me: Is that good?
Her: It’s like…half way.

9:10pm

Me: Yo. It’s 9:10
Her: I only have a little bit left! [shows me a more manageable mess and walks back toward the bathroom] I also have to put on make up.
Me: [Insert audible grumble]
Her: I’m going as fast as I can! I have a lot of f—-ing hair!

9:21pm

Me: [walks into her room and sees her putting on socks] Is this a good sign?! Are you almost ready to go?
Her: [venom-filled eye stare]

9:30

[we leave]

This is new to you?

Boyfriends have notoriously lied to me as to our departure time just because I take that long.

You're a big boy now. Dealing with girls who get pretty and shit.
