Yesterday afternoon my dad gave me two tickets to the Thunder game. I had begged for these tickets because last night Jazzercise was performing the Pre-game Show. I wanted to see my fellow Jazzercisers perform. So when my dad called me at 2:30 to say the tickets were mine- I was beside myself with excitement.
Usually when I’m given Thunder tickets, Sister #1 goes with me. She’s kind of my go-to- girl with this kind of stuff. However, yesterday she declined the invitation because she didn’t feel well. I think she waned to stay home to watch The Bachelor. I’m kidding she was really sick. Anyway, Sister #1 was out, which meant I had to begin the search for a seat partner. Below you will see my process of elimination….
2:45- Email MrT- no response so I move on to someone else.
3:15- Txt good college friend (girl) - has to work
3:17- Email good college friend’s brother - no response so I move on to someone else.
3:45- Email a church/running buddy- doesn’t feel like going to the game.
3:50- Hope MrT or good college friend’s brother email me back-which they don’t.
4:00- Txt another church/aerobics friend- she has a date. AHHH!
4:15- Txt Holly- can’t go already have plans.
4:30- Txt/email my go-to-guy friend- has to clean his room and the attic. WHAT!
4:35- Call my dad to see if he wants to go with me, since no one wants to go!
Now, as you can see I made an effort to find someone. I was at work so I had a limited number of email addresses and only a few hours to find someone. But even with those obstacles, I still should have been able to find SOMEONE. I didn’t think it would have been so difficult. I mean, I’m not asking for a date or marriage proposal, I’m just asking for someone to sit next to me at an NBA basketball game! It’s one basketball game, not even a commitment for multiple games.
Well, all this leads to one conclusion. Single Woman Seeks Friends. I need new friends. It’s not that I’m kicking the old ones to the curb, but the old ones are pretty much married/dated off. And that’s not a bad thing, but when I only have one ticket I can’t simply invite one of my married friends-trust me I’ve tried. This month I have a goal. By the end of this month, I want to meet three new single friends. All I’m looking for is someone that will sit next to me at an NBA game.
If you were wondering…Thunder thumped Maves, and I got to see Wes Welker at the game. That’s right the NFL dude! AND my dad was a great seat partner!
