Hanging with Isabel
Had an interesting 49th birthday this past weekend. First I ran into the French Dancer downtown…
Me: You’re back! When did you get back?
Her: I just got back Monday but I’ve been working on my visa since Monday.
Me: Oh, I’ve done some before in the past. What type?
Her: O1B – the extraordinary artists one. Here, take a look at the paperwork I have to fill out.
Me: Well, you’re the first extraordinary artist I’ve met, then. Whoa! That’s a lotta paperwork. How’s the situationship going?
Her: (laughing) It’s done.
There was homemade pie…
Me: I think pie is better than cake.
Her: I agree.
….but I had to run off to meet a different lady. That’s a story that starts and ends there.
Most people are as interesting as tap water.
Dammit, I shoulda just stayed for the pie.
Speaking of extraordinary artists, do you remember when I told you that I met this really lovely singer with the NFL Player?
Anywho, her name is Isabel and you can follow her on IG here.
The Counselor and I were looking for stuff to do so we caught Isabel around the way and had a few drinks while listening her sing.
Me: Oh man, I love every song she picked.
Her: Me too!
While Isabel was singing, the Counselor and I caught up.
Me: …so we just wrote him off.
Her: Good for you, not your circus, not your monkeys.
Me: OMG, that’s my line!
Her: What? Lies! That’s not your line, that’s my line.
Me: I beg to differ.
She didn’t like any of the drinks I got her so she got some wine.
Me: You should just finish this, it’s tiny.
Her: That’s what she said.
Me: I literally just said that in my gym class today.
Her: Stop trying to steal all my lines, Logan.
We chatted with Isabel afterward.
Counselor: I love your jacket! Where did you get it?
Isabel: Loft, I think? (checks label) Oh, what’s your sign?
Counselor: It’s X, what’s yours?
Isabel: It’s Y!
Counselor: It’s Logan’s birthday tomorrow. He’s an Aries.
Isabel: Happy Birthday! (to Counselor) He’s totally an Aries.
Me: What’s happening here?
We ended up swinging by my place because she broke her heel. I tried to fix it, hence the rubber mallet.
Me: Wait, you were the captain of the cheerleading team in high school?
Her: No, I was the twice captain of the varsity cheerleading team in high school.
Me: Oh man, I gotta tell all my friends from high school I’ve been dating a (twice) captain of a varsity cheerleading team. Oh wait, I don’t have any friends from high school.
Her: (laughing) You know, if you had a kid when you were 21, he would be just a few years younger than me.
Me: I just threw up a little in my mouth.
It was late when she caught an Uber home.
My actual birthday was pretty quiet so I’ll just tell you about later.
Still trying to catch up on sleep.
Location: earlier today, telling another Daisy about the grief button
Mood: hungry for pie
Music: you’ll be on my mind forever (Spotify)
