Catch a Cougar

So, since my roommates already gave you the behind the scenes look at my date last night, I thought that those of you reading this blog may want to know what happened from my perspective...maybe, maybe not...oh well, I'll tell you anyways :) So last night at like 8:00 there was a knock on our door from some guy who was looking for a girl named Amber. We said that no one by that name lived here so he left and we thought nothing more of it. Then I was like, I should probably go practice my rifle for colorguard because there is a show on Saturday and I really needed to practice so that I wouldn't mess up in a stadium full of 65,ooo crazy Cougar fans. So, at 8:30, Kate and Lindsay went outside with me because I'm self conscious practicing by myself and as I was practicing, this guy who was looking for Amber came out and was like, "So I just got stood up for a date and I go to the U of U and I'm in an LDS fraternity there. Would any of you want to go on a last minute date with me to the Brick Oven?" Kate was like, "Well, we just ate at Wendy's so I'm kinda full." And Lindsay was like, "I'm busy." And I was like, "Well, I'm free." And he was like, "Sweet, and by the way, my name is David." So, then I got in his car and we drove over to the Brick Oven. When we got there, we met up with one of his old mission buddies named Bryce, and his date. Then we walked into the banquet room and the whole thing was filled with a bunch of couples. Then David told me why he was so desperate to find a date. Supposedly, this LDS fraternity from the U of U was having a "Catch a Cougar" date night and all of the guys in this frat had to come down from Salt Lake to find a Cougar and then take them on a date to the Brick Oven. I was thinking, Oh my gosh, this is hilarious...I want to do this sometime, like go to the U of U and find a Ute and then call it "In pursuit of a cute Ute"...hahahahaha...well, maybe when I get a car or something :) So, we're on this date and I keep getting pestering phone calls and text messages from my roommates *Lindsay* asking me where I am and if I'm safe...which is probably a good thing because I mean, he is a Ute, but thats where my dad went to school, so I figured he couldn't be that bad...but anyways, I was always told that it was rude to answer phone calls or text on dates, so I kept ignoring her until like the 10th text I got, so I finally texted her back and was like, I'm still at the Brick Oven, and I haven't been abducted by aliens yet...and then she was like, we're getting cookies...and I was like, um reandom much? and then we stopped texting...So after being at the Brick Oven for like an hour and a half, David and I and Bryce and his date decided to leave and as we were leaving I saw these two guys from my ward (Greg and Jeremy...). So Iwas like, "hey, I know them...they're in my ward..." And then we did that awkward greeting thing...and it was like, I totally knew that they were there to spy on me, but I had no idea that Kate, Lindsay, and Chelsea were there too...but that made me laugh even harder when I found out...which was fairly soon after I got home from my date...but Chelsea and Lindsay still think that I have no idea that they were there, which kinda makes me laugh too...because its like I'm tricking them back or something :) Anyways, we leave the Brick Oven and David is like, "So, I went to BYU last winter semester and I want to go visit my old roommates and we can watch a movie at their place, is that cool?" And I was like, "yeah, sure...this is your thing..." So, we went over to his old apartment where I found that I grew up like ten minutes away from 2 of his old roommates, one of their other roommates was dating a girl that I knew, and the other roommate spoke Chinese...which is super, what a small world that I had a small connection to all of his old roommates. But one of them was having a study group in the living room so we couldn't watch a movie there so David was like, "Do you want to go watch a movie at the dollar theater?" And I was like, "Sure why not." And he was like, "Can you call Kate and see if she'll go with us as Bryce's date since he had to take his other date home?" So I called Kate and she agreed to come....and then we went and saw Transformers 2...and it was just as good as the last time that I saw it...and then we came home...and that was was pretty fun and a great end to an otherwise pretty boring day :)
