Okay, so today was the historic day that I casually got a guy’s number.
Not just any guy’s number. Angel Face’s number.
After leaving sociology class early (after our second test), I walked to the biology building. Angel Face was sitting on the bench. I hesitated at first, and then I asked him “Is anyone sitting here?”, referring to the very small bit of space left on the bench to the left of him. He looked up at me and said something like “No, no one’s sitting there”, and went back to looking at his phone. So I sat down. I was seriously like 2 inches away from him. I got a book out and pretended to be interested in it for a moment, and then I thought, fuck it. I looked at him and said, “I like your hair,” he was running his fingers through it, and he looked over at me and said, “Thank you,” and he smiled, and then I said “It reminds me of… uh, have you ever seen Fight Club?” and before I could continue, he smiled and said “Let me guess… Angel Face?” and I laughed and said yeah. He laughed and said “You are the second person to have said that to me, thank you! I really appreciate it.” He was smiling. He said that was the look he was going for. I told him he pulled it off really well, and he said he was getting it cut off really soon, as he wasn’t used to having it that long. And then his friend said, now you won’t be able to call him Angel Face! I laughed and said something about him already being established as Angel Face. He said he wanted to dye it blue or something; I told him I’ve had my hair blue before, and that you have to take really cold showers, or it will turn green. Then Angel Face said, oh, nevermind then, that doesn’t sound fun. Then, (I don’t know WHAT possessed me to say this), I said I like to take scalding hot showers, and Angel Face kind of laughed and said “Are you like a masochist or something?” and I said, “Yeah, I like to practice burning in hell,” and he laughed really hard. His laugh is A+. And then his friend sitting next to him started directly quoting Fight Club, and I laughed. Then, Angel Face said if he really wanted to look like Jared Leto he would have bleached his eyebrows. Then he went to say our biology teacher inspired him to grow his mustache. And I said, “You should tell him that,” and then I said “And then start crying in front of him,” and he laughed really hard again. Then I suggested he should grow out a full beard and the word Walker (the name of our teacher) into it and he laughed again.
Then he goes, so you’re in our biology class? And I say yeah, and he said what’s your name? I said Valerie, and he said I’m Andrew. We shook hands and smiled at each other. He has beautiful blue eyes.
I learned that he’s a sushi chef in Boone somewhere. Then my friend Micki showed up (who is also in bio with us), and Andrew told us about his Sexy Sushi party he’s throwing. He said he invited like 400 people! And at this point we were standing in a circle, and he said, you guys are more than welcome to come if you want. Then, he took his phone out and he asked for my phone number. “You can be naked if you want,” he said jokingly because it’s a Sexy sushi party. I said my number out loud to him, and then he handed me his phone so I could put in my name. Each time he hit a key on his phone keyboard, he said “Bloop”. He stood really close to me, and then I handed him my phone. I’ve already said this but his eyes are so pretty.
Then, Andrew goes, “This is really cute, by the way.” He was talking about us all standing in a circle, exchanging phone numbers. Then he said that most people don’t do this, how most people have really sour face expressions and no one really goes out of their way to meet people like this.
Usually I sit in the far left area of the lecture hall. Today, I sat in the row in front of Angel Face and his friend, with Micki. I was so excited that I didn’t really pay attention to the lecture. We got out about 20 minutes early – I turned around and said goodbye to Andrew and his friend after class, as Micki did.
When I told him his new nickname is Angel Face, he said “okay”. I get really good vibes from him.
