Enter Aaron, stage left

Hey, lets pretend it's still Sunday and I am doing my Sunday traditional journal entry. However, this time I decided to skip to when I first mention Aaron in my journal. Basically I am skipping over my first year at college, (which I found fun to read because of the nostalgia aspect, but I was getting too old for it to be very cute, ya know?) But I bet there might be some readers who will find the evolution of my relationship with Aaron and I interesting.

Oh, but I have been going to the single's FHE's. I love those. Chris came last time. He doesn't like them as much as me. There are tons more people than there used to be. More guys too. Joe is an item of interest. Alan, Brody and Aaron are cool and funny. Aaron and his sister Channelle are so hillarious. Them alone are reason enough for me to go.
So there you go. Aaron was introduced to my journal amidst a few other boys. (There names have been changed-ish.) Oh, and, sorry Chanel. But that is how I spelled your name. :( BTW, Chris is my brother.

Okay, I decided that at least up until I start dating Aaron I will post every mention of him, even if it's only to help tell an anecdote that I thought noteworthy because of a different crush.

(Speaking of Brody) I've developed a bit of a crush on him. One week at FHE I sat by him and we talked and flirted (he's easier to flirt with than anyone else I know) he even sat on me when he was fighting Aaron for a seat.
If someone sits on you accidentally, it means that they really like you, right? And....alas. Aaron was just a side-note in this story.

Okay, I have this pretty funny story now, but it is pretty long, so I will paraphrase most of it. There was a fellow in the group who had some kind of mental handicap. He was kind of sweetly special, you know, but he really really liked girls and that sometimes made things awkward. So, while I was at this FHE (family home evening) thing he pretty much declared his love for me in front of everyone. Then he tried to guilt me into accepting a date with him. (A bit later I actually did accept, but he never set it up, so I was safe.) Anyway, in the midst of it all, with everyone trying there best not to bust out laughing .....
Aaron said, "I don't know how to handle this." and he went outside. I don't know why it was so hard for him! I was the one in the process of being asked out!
Indeed, Aaron, how is it that you couldn't handle that?
But the night of fun continued with only a couple more embarrassments from the special guy, (some of which I was saved from by Brody. Way to miss an opportunity, Aaron!) and then it was time to go.
Chanell asked Chris why he didn't save his sister. He said he didn't know what to do. Then Aaron (Chanell's brother) said, "This is what I would have done!" As he punched his hand with his fist. Funny aye? Man, those people sure are fun. I need to be better friends with them all. Good enough to do things with and junk. Maybe we will soon. :)
Look Chanel! I am getting better with your name! seems more like harsh than funny what Aaron suggested, but it certainly was funny at the time. Seriously, Aaron and Chanel were basically the life of those parties. And pretty soon I was initiated into the fun group of people and I had a blast with that group (and junk. ??). Good times man, good times.

It's so fun to hear about how you and Aaron first got to know each other. Those Nelson kids are funny, always the life of the party!

Brody? I don't remember a Brody...are you talking about Sheriff Deputy Brady?

Melanie said...

eh hem. Names were changed to protect people. :)

That is so funny, I have some funny stories about mentally handicapped boys hitting on me as well. It's awkward because you can't do anything about it.

Chanelson said...

Ahh...subtlety thy name is not Chanel.

LOL, I love going back and reading my journal too, and stuff. I wish I'd written better in college...
