Ashley her good friend Cali and I rented a car and escaped for 5 days to San Diego. We rode beach cruisers on the boardwalk at night and basked in the sun during the day. We had free accomadations at a sweet lady's home from my parents ward which made the trip oh so affordable. My mom was incredible as usual to let me wisk away like a carefree kid while she took Berlin off up to the cabin the entire time I was away. I'm pretty sure Berlin didn't even hardly notice I was gone because she had a blast with her cousins up in the mountains. We discovered our new favorite yogurt shop called Yogurt Land and went almost twice a day. When we learned they just got one in Az we drove straight there on our way home from California because we were so excited. Vanilla wafer will surprise you. To die for! The highlight of my trip was one of the nights we rode our bikes to the yogurt shop with some friends we had run into from Az and as I am sampling yogurt flavors I behold this very attractive guy cracking jokes next to me. If I have a type this guy fit perfectly into it. He was dressed adoreable, tall dark and handsome, and for as little amount of personality as one could imagine showing in 15 minutes in a yogurt shop this guy seemed like a lot of fun. I was totally feeling a strong vibe but what the heck do I do? A. what are the odds this guy is even a mormon..B. He lives in a different state.. C. How am I going to get him to approach me? We keep making eye contact and then Kylie Minogue's song..It was loooooaoaoaooovvve at first sight comes on. This had to be no coincidence right? Well I knew I had to do something I couldn't let this dream boat slip through my fingers. What if this was my only chance at love? We finished sooner than him and his group so we lingered outside the yogurt shop as I am scrambling for how to get this guy to talk to me. So just then a bum off the street starts chattin it up with me and as this is happening the guy comes outside and is walking past us. I sence he is thinking the same thing as me.. dangit the oppurtunity is slipping past. He walks away and keeps looking back and just as he is almost out of sight he looks back and we both wave. What dorks! So then I get a brilliant idea. I scramble for a pen and paper scribble down my number and I tell the bum to chase after the guy in the plaid shirt that just turned the corner a few blocks down. He of course wants to know what's in it for him so I tell him good karma! Off he goes. I have no idea if he will even find the guy. So we get back to our friends condo and I get a call from him but of course don't pick up. "Hey this is Brian and I just wrestled a bum for your number! Call me." So of course I was so excited but a total chicken to actually go hang out with this cute stranger late at night. So we ended up texting a little back and forth. Apparently the bum gave him the peice of paper but then immedietly ripped it back and the guy chased him for a block and had to rip it from him again! I guess you shouldn't trust a bum to run these types of operations but hey it worked out. Well not exactly... he added me on facebook and the magic faded. As I was stressing about whether or not I should make my photo albums with Berlin and I private he was blocking all of his drinking and partying with girls pictures. We both saw the albums we were trying to hide from eachother before we could block them fast enough so the magic was lost. He wasn't looking for a mormon mother and he wasn't the boy of my dreams. Darn. Oh well it was worth the ego boost.
