I called up Kristy. (I had todo something. I was going crazy.) I said to
myself, you got to make up your mind one way or the other. She either says
yes or she says no. No more ofthis stupid fooling around.
So I went to the phone and took it into the bathroom again and dialed.
I knew what I was going to say, and I figured I knew what her answer was
going to be. I
She saidhello.
"Hi, this is Teny. I'm calling to see if you want to go out with me tomonow
night to the movie. Sean and Tonya are going. All four ofus could go
together." Everything said, straightforward, no screw-up. 10
"Sure, I'd love to. Whattime?" I
And Ijust about dropped the phone. I wasn't expecting it. Not like that,
anyway, so quick. "Eight o'clock. No, seven, ifwe're going to the early show.
I'd better check with Sean. I'll call you back."
"Okay. Well, okay, I'll talk to you later. See ya." 15
"Okay."
That was it. We hung up. {
I thought afterward, Blanchard, there's really something wrong with you.
Here you had the girl on the phone. She was agreeing with everything you
said. The least you could have done was talk to her for a few minutes. You 20
could have said something instead ofjust hanging up like some idiot. Man,
you could have talked about dogs or something. I
But I couldn 't think of anything to say, honest. Of course a million lousy
things came to me the second the receiver hit the button, but right when
I needed to, I couldn't think of a thing. I called up Sean and we set the time.1 25
Then I was an hour getting up the nerve to phone her back. And when I did
finally dial, she wasn't horne. To tell the truth, it was a relief. I left the mess-
age with her mother about the time. !
Now I got to spend the whole evening withher, playing the real cool guy
that I am. No sweat, right? Ifyou can do it, I can do it. 30
Wish me luck (for sure I'll need it), if \
