Picture it....A sunny week in Cleveland. You've been working HARD in the lab almost everyday for the past 2 weeks. You've been up early everyday to train. And today is no exception. After swimming for 40 minutes and working 8 hours, the last thing I want to do is go be social. I really just wanted my pjs and a bit of whiskey. But, I forced myself to go. I was encouraged by others, ah hem mom, to go. And I did. And I think I looked damn good and was pretty social for walking into a bar with no one next to me and no one that I knew there.
Honestly, it was a bit petrifying. I went straight to the bar for a 7&7 and immediately struck up a convo with the nice, somewhat attractive older guy next to me. He of course bought me my drink. I talked to a couple of guys there. Only one was remotely datable for me. The others were interesting to talk to and one sounds like he'd be a hoot and a holler but not my type. He did give me his number just in case I feel like getting a beer and people watching. At the end of the evening I ended up talking to and having a drink with the bar guy again. It was a nice conversation and he ended up asking for my number. We'll see if he calls.
I'll probably go again.
Oh! And as I walked out of HoB Euclid Ave was a sea of sailors. HELLOOOOO BOYS!!! I flirted it up a bit with one group for fun. It was quite the ego boost!
