Kristy Uzelac, also known as Uzi, one of the coolest girls I have ever known. Kristy and I go back to when I was in dental school up in San Francisco. There we became really good friends. We had tons of great memories and lots of stories to share. I’m sure even then we both thought about maybe starting a relationship but for one reason or another we never did. Since then sadly we have lost a lot of our communication because I moved to Southern California and she moved to Utah. The big question that has lingered is could we ever be more than friends.
I was pleasantly surprised when I saw Kristy was my date tonight. I told her early on, “you realize that we are now on a date?” We were both clear this was a date. Could there be a spark between both of us? Only time will tell. Meanwhile I knew we were going to have a great time. Kristy would not disappoint. One thing I learned a few months ago is that she had taken Trapeze classes which is such a “Kristy” thing to do! Due to my previous interest in that, she planned a trapeze class on the Santa Monica Pier for our date. I was so excited and nervous to do it because I have a fear of doing flips. After the first trapeze swing most of the anxiety had settled. By the end of the class I was doing back flips off the trapeze. Kristy must have had powers to help me overcome.
Writing this blog, I wish there was a lot of new information I could give you that I learned about Kristy on the date. The good thing is when we are together we mostly have fun and joke around. Maybe that’s why we have so many good memories together. However, I do know a lot from before about Kristy. She has a job as recruiter, lives in Utah, is really chill and constantly has the coolest commentary on things. Sometimes I think she stays up all night thinking of unique things to say! For example we each yelled something out loud on our last trapeze swing. I yelled at the top of my lungs “Freeeeedooomm!” She yelled, “I’mmmm Naaakked!”
Knowing me so well we next headed off to a Karaoke lounge where we enjoyed some dinner and sang our hearts out. Though its not included in the video due to lighting. Our first song was a duet by Human League called, “Don’t you want me?” It was entertaining and right on theme. Kristy has a great voice which is why she is starting to do some singing with a rapper named Simeon Lawrence. Honestly, we were having so much fun. Then Kristy sang a solo of Lady Gaga’s Bad Romance, which is always a crowd pleaser. We only got 2 songs in but we made them count.
The night was once again a success. How often do you get to go on a trapeze? I felt at ease the whole night and we were able to get some flirting and hand holding in. At first I was worried that might be awkward since we have been friends for so long. This was definitely a new chapter in our relationship that felt natural and nice. It was interesting that Kristy sang Bad Romance tonight. At the climax of the song Lady Gaga sings “I don’t wanna be friends” a few times. Which has me questioning can Kristy and I make it more than friends?
