Speaking of Strange Encounters

I am going through a massive update of my blog and I started tagging strange events I had experienced as “strange encounter.” I have publish two articles involving strange people I have met up north, one of which was flirting with me.

These stories have sparked some memories of a very, very strange encounter.

About a year ago, I began chatting on FB with a boy from my hometown who was enrolled at my college. He seemed pretty cool and I am open to gaining some friends. He began flirting with me a few weeks later and I ignored the cyber advances.

After a few weeks of flirting, he decided to ask me out on a hike. This was clearly before Bass Guy and I were serious, but I was still not fast enough on my feet to think of a way out. So I said I was too busy with school work and we should reschedule.

It was at that moment when he sent this message:

Rhetorically speaking, how would you feel if you had anal sex with me in the forest?”

Uh, what? I didn’t realize I gave off an anal in the woods kind of vibe.

Either way, I told him I would never do such a thing with someone I hardly knew and our conversations ended. Forever.

Pumpkin Spider

So everyone that lives near me, has already heard this story at least once, but for those of you that live hours away – here is my story.

imageLast Friday, I was heading back to my dorm with a bag of chips and a cup of Irish Crème Cappuccino. I was walking past our campus volleyball court when I saw a wasp buzzing around. I swung my arm over it and kept walking. That was when I realized it was following me. I turned to get a better look at it when I realized it was not a wasp at all, but a spider, and I had gone through its web. I swung from my arm as I began to panic. Delilah was walking with me and I quickly started to yell at her to get it off.

Me and spiders are not friends and the spiders up here are massive. I mean come on, I thought it was a large wasp. It did not take long for me to start squealing in a very pathetic matter. I made many attempts to get him to climb off onto something else, and that it when it began to trek up his web towards my arm.

Tears were building in my eyes as I visualized it crawling up my arm onto my face and taking a nice meaty bite out of it. There were other students staring as the walked passed. And then it was on me. I was in a full on panic and began to flail and squeal pathetically as Delilah watched in ultimate horror.

And that is when my hero showed up. A girl quickly whipped out her binder and smacked the spider off my arm. And then she stepped on him.

Yes, I know, the spider didn’t deserve to get stepped on. Very true. I have come to terms with this, not that a few days have passed. But I was panicking and it was a split second decision.

I took a few wonderful breaths and tried to calm my shacking. I thanked the girl with all my might.

I later found out that the spider was not poisonous, but it still would have hurt to be bitten. So, let this be a warning to all you other spiders! I will not show mercy!

Well, Isn’t That Nice?

So this sweet guy on FB (Ok, he might not be sweet at all, idk) requested to be my friend and I accepted. I noticed that we shared 8 friends, so I must know him, right? Anyway, in the time it took me to accept the request, get out of bed, get dressed, brush my teeth, and sit on the couch – he had already found my number and texted me.

It was nice that he TEXTED ME!! If you didn’t catch the hint, I am still waiting on a text from Bass Guy. Although we have been having great chats.

To be nice, I texted back and his third text message to me was:

“So Emily, I was looking through your pictures and you’re really cute (smiley face) And are you still in (my home town) or did you go back home already?”

Ok, so despite the creepiness of the whole situation. This kid has some serious balls, which I respect. I kindly told him that I was not in town, and although I appreciated the compliment, I was interested in someone else.

He continued on to tell me that he was sorry and he was just lonely. And is now telling me to hook him up with one of my friends. Ok, no. It is now your cue to leave, sir. You have gone too far.

Either way, this has gotten me thinking. Should I remove my status as single? You know, stop teasing lonely guys and give Bass Guy a little startle? But then again, Bass Guy might not be that interested. So if I change it, will he give up and walk away? With a little insecure shrug, justify that the non-existent guy was probably a better fit? I DO NOT want that to happen by any means. And what if he asks why I changed it? Well, I’m only interested in you, I don’t want to give other guys the wrong impression. Sure, that’ll go over well.

Then again, if he is interested, things might be a bit different.
