Before I tell you the story, I need to give you a little background information. I kind of have a schoolgirl crush on this guy (and for sake of the story, he takes lots of science class) and, completely unrelated, I met this nice, then creepy guy at the bar on Friday and ditched him to “leave” with a guy that I know. Now, for the story.
It’s snowing today in Frostburg and VERY windy. This morning when I was walking to class I very nearly almost fell down some of the concrete steps on campus that were clearly not salted. So when I left class I headed in another direction, as to avoid tripping up the steps, and took warm-cuts through lots of buildings. I decided to cut through Compton Science Center, which was three-fold: it was warm in there and in my path toward home, i love the pendulum and haven’t been in there all semester, and there was a slight possibility I might see aforementioned schoolgirl crush.
So I walk in, with headphones blaring in my ears and think a janitor is talking to me, so I respond, very loudly, before yanking off a headphone. As it turns out, she wasn’t talking to me and everyone in the lobby was now looking at me. I kind of smiled and laughed a little embarrassedly and the janitor and the girls she was talking to were very sweet. So then I put my head phone back in place and head across the lobby, a little bit slowly, kind of looking for schoolgirl crush when, out of the corner of my eye, I see creepy guy from the bar.
So I look in the opposite direction and head out the door into the cold acting as though I hadn’t seen him, though I’m pretty sure he saw me since A) I made a scene and B) I walked right in front of his view. If he said anything I couldn’t have heard him b/c of my headphones (thank you IPOD), but I think he started to follow me out, so I started walking really quickly. When I got to the top of the hill, my hair blowing wildly in the wind, I looked back toward Compton and there was schoolgirl crush coming out the doors.
Isn’t that just my luck?
