Sometimes the stars align perfectly. Today was the most stressful I had felt since I had taken my boards three years ago.  Truth be told, I was in a negative mood going into tonight’s date. That is until this pretty ball of positive energy came knocking on my door. I opened the door and realized it was Samantha Goodsell, who I had recognized from her video application and seeing her at a party or two.

Still in a somewhat negative mood, Samantha explained the date to me. I’ll call it a “choose your own adventure” date. Basically we got in the car and she flipped a coin. If it landed tails we turned right, or heads we turned left. On cards she pulled out of a can it said how long we would drive in that direction. We chose to do this 14 times. On the last one we would do her activity. Honestly, I thought this idea was a recipe for disaster. Yet, on the 14th card we passed right by this beautifully lit gazebo in old-town Upland.  What luck! You couldn’t have planned a better place than that for what she planned. So that’s where we parked.

We walked to the gazebo and held hands where she surprised me with a much needed dinner. She had “prepared” my favorite meal on earth with my favorite drink on earth: In-N-Out and Dr. Pepper. Someone did their research. Immediately my spirits were lifted! The stresses of reality faded away, as my mind slipped into a romantic dreamland. Then we talked about her adventures in her career as an actress. I couldn’t believe this girl was Miley Cyrus’ double for her music videos. Um… can someone pinch me?

Next we went to Scandia (a small amusement park near me). I’d say the park had around ten people in it. For the most part it was ours alone! She had me pick from cards which attraction we would do next. First I picked the bumper boats, which were good for some playful flirting. Next, I picked miniature golf, but instead we did the go karts. Lastly, we played miniature golf where we would tee off in random ways. It was so much fun I wasn’t about to let the moment pass me by. On the eighteenth hole I leaned in and kissed her. Picture perfect.

Sometimes the stars align perfectly! Some burn out quickly and others endure the test of time. The question is which star is Samantha?

Heather Stephenson said...

This girl is an amazing date planner and I am shocked she is not taken already! Some guys obviously had some big problems for not snatching her up. Tough competition for the other girls... Hard date to one up and hard girl to one up.

OMG! Samantha! That was just the cutest, best date ever! Woot! I love ya Samantha! Rick: Pick Samantha! She's the BEST!!!!

Brian said...

She's cute, I suppose, but I'm confused about something. Rick says he has seen her at a few parties. What is a guy his age doing at the same parties with girls her age? What is the appeal there? I don't get it.

Kristin said...
