The Tracie & Austin Story -- Part Two
Anyway, since I was depressed with my breakup, I tried to make more friends. I did this by trying to make more friends at work. So I decided to throw a work party at my house. I invited everyone, gave them instructions, got cute, and waited….
Righton time Austin showed up carrying two generic bottles of soda. We waited…and waited…and realized nobody else was coming! Awkward! I texted Heidi about Austin being the only person to show up. She didn’t immediately reply. So, when I heard my phone make the text noise I asked Austin to read it out loud since my phone was over by him. To my embarrassment Heidi had written “Do you need me to rescue you?” We both laughed awkwardly.
The date wasn’t the best in the world, but we remained friends and continued to make each other laugh at work. One time we were over his apartment and one of his annoying foreign roommates was there with one of his foreign friends. They wouldn’t leave or go somewhere else. Plus they were speaking in a different language. So Austin and I wrote notes back and forth to each other translating what they were saying to each other and making fun of them. They didn’t get the code that if a guy brings a girl over, you go to your room or leave the apartment, and you DON’T just stay there unless you’re invited to stay.
