Tales of The Bartender, part five

Okay, whoa. A lot of stuff happened last night. Well, okay, not a lot, but, like, important stuff? Anyway, as you can see (read), I'm still quite hyper. Which may or may not have something to do with the fact that I drank about 25 Cokes last night. Not good.

Okay, rambling.

*deep breath*

So Eleanor and I went to the bar last night. (That's the third time I typed "last night". I'm going to stop doing that now.) At first there was no sign of our favorite Bartender. We were just about to leave (we were both kind of tired) when he came sauntering in, saying hi to me, but no kiss. :( We decided to hang around a bit longer. (Thanks, Eleanor!) No advancements were made, so we gave up hope and got ready to leave. Eleanor went over to some people she knew to say goodbye, and I demonstratively put on my coat and grabbed my purse, making my best "I'm leaving now. Don't you want to come give me a kiss goodbye?"-face, which totally worked. Yay! The conversation was limited to:

Him: "Leaving?"
Me: "Yep."
Him: "Well, bye then."
Me: "See you next time."
Him: "Yeah!"

Which, not great, but hey, conversation!

Eleanor and I got about halfway back to the car when she turned to me and asked if I wanted to go back. Which would look sort of weird, but it might be my only chance. So we went back. And got a lot of weird looks. Oh well.

Bartender Guy looked pleasantly surprised. I mumbled something about distraction tactics and keeping people on their toes, which earned me a smile.

I positioned myself strategically close to the bar where he was sitting, and, miraculously, he came over and started an actual conversation. w00t!

We talked for about two hours. Turns out he does have a girlfriend, but they're sort of in a bad place. As demonstrated by the fact that his girlfriend came by, stayed for like, two minutes, and didn't kiss him once. She also completely ignored me, which was completely fine by me. And, w00t!, if they ever break up, I definitely have a chance. Which sounds really weird, but it came up naturally in the conversation, promise.

We all decided to get going at about 3 A.M., and I did get another kiss on the cheek.

I don't really know what to think now, but I guess this is all sort of a good thing, right?

Heh, I thought that didn't sound right, but I was just going to pretend I knew what you meant. ;)
