Pulled the trigger


I'm going through with the weekend trip with BlindDate #2. She is going to fly up to NYC and spend the weekend in Manhattan with me. Our second date. Most people are telling me we're nuts. Or worse! That may be, but the wheels have been set in motion and this will go down as a spectacular failure or glowing success, one way or the other.

It really isn't even that expensive. My company pays for the hotel since I had to be there anyway, and the flight from DC to NYC is about as much as a decent night on the town (same as we spent on our first date, essentially). It's just a little dramatic. Well, maybe more than a little.

We're not total strangers at this point. We've spent 3 hours a day on the phone, and countless emails and text messages, so we have a reasonable idea about who each other is. This event will be a trial by fire, though. If we can survive 36 hours in the Big Apple, we might just be okay.

So, the over/under at # of condoms used is... kidding, no betting allowed!

And please, no more naysaying. Gimmie good vibes, 'cause I am in it either way.

Dear One ~ I've been sending them since you first told me about this madcap adventure ... And ISN'T that what your name implies??? I will expect filtered details. After all, you don't want to ruin your "Big Sis's" sensibilities!

This is my blog - Comes With Warning Labels. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

Sounds exciting to me! I would absolutely do it. You obviously have the means and the balls to do it so no worries! I'm just curious about what she's going to be doing while you're actually working??? Oh well, have fun!

She won't arrive until Friday evening, and I will be done with work by then. We'll have Saturday together to explore, uh, stuff.
