Nah! I’m not getting married. Not yet. But I have been given the responsibility of planning an elaborate date for my boyfriend, who is ever so annoyed with me, it’s annoying.
I have the knack of setting him off because I’m such a charming personality, I can’t keep other people from gravitating towards me. Due to his comparatively smaller mass (my boyfriend weighs at least 6 kg lesser than me and I wouldn’t call myself overweight), he feels that he’s gravitating lesser towards me (low ). Cause remember? Also he feels he’s further away (high ), as compared to my coworkers. So physics is definitely not on his side.
What I need to make him realize, is the same equation just does not apply to him. The gravitational constant is larger, which makes all the difference on the earth.
After much coaxing, he has agreed to come over to my work place to take me out on a lunch date. Except that he has asked me to plan an elaborate date. Which, let’s all agree, I’m pretty adept at. I love planning. I love romance. Most importantly, I love food.
I have decided to plan a combination of an awesome food place that doesn’t burn too big a hole in my pocket, and burning holes in pockets. Or at least doing something randomly adventurous along that line.
As a big time nerd fascinated with stories, I also want to set a theme to the date. I have thus far eliminated horror and melodramatic sob-fest from the options. Also Bollywood, cause that just does not make sense <sneaky pun eh?>. I’m probably going to go with romance, comedy and adventure.
With the flow of thought, I think I’m going to make the theme of the date, a book. Cause what’s better to entice a nerd? The idea is to do a real time scripting of the date. Of course, I’ll add my own magical elements to the tale. I must admit, the idea isn’t entirely original. I came across this post that had a guy do a real-time tweet of a potential ‘love story’ between two strangers in front of him who had met on a train ride.
Story telling on the go! Hopefully turns out great!
