I'm having dinner tonight with Old Phish Friend. It's not a date. I don't think FF is 100% convinced of this fact. He implied Old Phish Friend might have ulterior motives. But no, I can tell when someone is flirting with me, and he's not flirting. This is just old friends getting together after not having seen each other in eleven years.
FF still doesn't like it, but he didn't freak out like he did two weeks ago when I mentioned possibly having drinks with Old Phish Friend on a Saturday night. Needless to say, after much screaming and misery, no drinks were had. I do think this will precipitate yet another discussion on where things stand between us though.
When I was telling another male friend (Tootles) about my dinner plans and how it is not a date, he asked me what underwear I would be wearing (this conversation took place yesterday). I said since I hadn't done laundry in next to forever, whatever pair was left in the drawer. Yup, he said, not a date.
Yeah, that's what I said.
