Thanks for clicking on my post. Not really sure of what to make of the situation that has been handed to me. However, I am open to any NON-Trolling thoughts and opinions.
My friends and I were sitting at a restaurant one day and deemed me as the ?Chandler? of the group. This is mostly because I am always joking around and end up getting into the oddest situations. When you read below, you may or may not agree. One thing for sure is that 2010 has been filled with up?s and down?s, so far, I cannot complain about an uneventful life.
The Main Event:
A while back I met this girl named Cammy (Psuedonym) at a friend?s house. She already had a boyfriend, so I did nothing to try and scheme or anything. However, needless to say, there was a mutual attraction. Both body language and chemistry was very apparent. Within the first night of meeting with her, she hugged me multiple times, kissed me on the cheek at least 7 times, and she even sat on my lap during a session of Geometry Wars. She even vocalized that she would be dating me if she weren?t already in a relationship. This left me sort of confused. So conflicted that the next night, I couldn?t sleep for like 3 hours.
So what were my options? I had no clue. I knew that I wasn?t about to stand by and do absolutely nothing. I?ve done that in the past and always left a regret of ?what if?s? and ?I should have said something?. I decided, that since it was Christmas time, I?d go ahead and vocalize my experience with her and allow her to decide. Essentially, the ball was in her court.
Now the delivery. How was I supposed to vocalize the situation to her. I wanted to speak to her in person, but that was highly unlikely cause she would rarely ever come to my friend?s house. I could have visited her at work, since I am friends with her co-worker, but I felt as if that was inappropriate. Considering that she did have a boyfriend. After a few weeks of pondering the next step, I chose to send her a note. Should it be via text, email, or Facebook. I figured, neither. After that first night, we exchanged some small talk on Facebook. I?m sure there have been many successfully interactions online with people, but that seemed a bit corny.
I decided to not only send her a note, but to also add the personal touch of creativity. Designed and constructed a heart shaped box with a fabric lining and cover. I also attached a CD of Christmas songs that weren?t so ?Christmasy?.
- Mariah Carey - All I Want For Christmas Is You
- The Chipmunks - Christmas Don’t Be Late
- Destiny’s Child - 8 Days Of Christmas
- John Lennon - So This Is Christmas
- Jackson 5 - Give Love On Christmas Day
- Beach Boys - Little Saint Nick
- Peanuts - Christmas Time Is Here
- Brenda Lee - Rock’n Around The Christmas Tree
- Wham - Last Christmas
- Band Aid - Don’t They Know It?s Christmas Time
When she?d open the box, she will see a letter rolled and tied with a red ribbon. Upon opening the letter, it contained a handmade rose made with a red ribbon. The letter essentially said my peace with no intention of receiving anything back. I wanted to go on after this event knowing I did what needed to be done. (I may or may not post pics of the heart-shaped box)
The Chandler Part:
Well, unbeknownst to me, irony was right around the corner. I figured that this gift was nothing more than overly hand crafted greeting card. Ready for the irony? On the Friday before Christmas, I sent the gift via FedEx. My friends and I hung out that Friday night. During a casual conversation, my friend?s girlfriend said, ?Oh BTW, Cammy is engaged now?. So there I was turning into all different shades and colors due to the high level of embarrassment. What was I to do except, man up to the plate. They were going to find out somehow. So with all my strength, I told my friends of the situation. My friend?s GF volunteered to intercept the package for me. However, I requested that she only remove my contact information from the packaging. I mean, I worked really hard on the gift, Cammy should at least see it. If she decides to throw it away, well, that?s her choice. However, I have yet to hear any sort of information to her reaction. Just little tid bits of random information would fly across my path. Unintentionally listening, I was at a gathering and they were discussing Cammy?s engagement. Apparently, there have been many vocalizing the disapprovement of the engagement because Cammy and her significant other are constantly fighting. Cammy also called my friend?s GF requesting to talk about ?the stuff we cannot talk about at work?. Don?t get me wrong, I?m not looking forward to anything, my part is done really. So there you have it. I went ballz out, only to be pwnd by much irony. I don?t consider this to be a defeat, but I cannot help but wonder what Cammy thought of the gift. For now, I guess its “To Be Continued…Maybe”.
