It's Tuesday night. This Thursday, two girls are coming over to my apartment. They're both pretty cute, but one has a boyfriend. We'll call the single one Badgamer, and as for the taken chick, we'll call her Goodfriend. You may be asking, "How did you come into contact with these girls?" Excellent question, readers.
They both work with my roommate Salthook at a hardware/appliance/etc store. Saltyballs has been in the friend zone with Goodfriend for... approximately... since the dawn of time, roughly. But he's always had a big thing for her. Anyway, it's safe to say that nothing's going to happen there.
Badgamer just recently started working at this place, and she works in the same department as Goodfriend. Salty found out from spending countless hours at Cabinets & Appliances that she is apparently a little bit of a gamer, having played a bunch of CS and dated a WoW player for a long time. Some of you may be thinking, "Wow, a girl gamer! My fantasy!" Well, don't feel bad, because you're in the same boat as my dear beloved roommate. Others are probably thinking, "Counterstrike? AND she dated a WoW player? Chump-ass noob IMO?" Right on!
So this girl plays games and is pretty cute. That right there is love to many people, and my roommate is included. He eventually mustered up the courage to ask Badgamer over for dinner and drinks, and she said she'd gladly come over. He even told her to bring a cute friend for me. What a champ!
Goodfriend informed Saltyballs that it would be just as friends. DENIED! FRIEND ZONED! AWFUL! My heart went out to my dear sweet beloved roommate in dealing with such a tragedy.
Now, you may be asking, "Where's this going, yubee? Both girls friend zoned your roommate. What does this have to do with you?" Fine, impatient readers, I'll get straight to the point.
Goodfriend and Badgamer came over last week as friends. It was fun! We all had fun, and Goodfriend and I drank heartily. Salty and Badgamer? Not so much. So when Goodfriend left early, Badgamer was alone, completely exposed to your intoxicated author. Normally I can be pretty shy and reserved, but when I drink a little bit, I UNLEASH MY TRUE POWER LIKE A PHOENIX EXPLODING IN AN INTENSE, FIERY HOT SUPERNOVA! YAWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Badgamer enjoyed my personality enough that she /f a'd me on that horrible MySpace site, sent me a few comments, and orchestrated a plan with Goodfriend to come back over this Thursday. And this time she wants to drink.
Now I don't want to assume, you all know what happens when that happens! It makes an ass out of u and me! Get it? Anyway, I don't want to make any unfounded assumptions, but it sounds like this girl might just be interested in getting with me. The same girl who denied my roommate. The same roommate who has been extremely unsuccessful in getting ass his entire life, and is understandably kind of bitter about it. I mean, he gave them the A-OKAY right away when they propositioned drinking together again. For me that means even though he's in the friend zone with both of them, he's so hopeful isn't he? Poor guy. =[
So here's the big question. Do I risk hooking up with this girl if she comes onto me? Do I stick with the golden rule of bros before hoes? Do you think he would be upset if anything did happen? I'd talk to Saltyballs about it, but I hate getting personal with him since it can be very uncomfortable to delve into his relationship woes. What to do!?
