sixth sense

'hey, what's up? are you working?'

'no, i'm off, but i just woke up.'

'dude, it's SEVEN p.m.'

'i know. hey, when i say i'm nocturnal, do you think i'm kidding?'

'anyway, did you hear the news?'

'what news? whose news? what's the news? dammit, i always miss everything.'

'oh. nothing.'

'nothing? uh-uh, mister, there's definitely some news. well at least tell me who it's about.'


'phoebe? oh the thing about the car? yeah, she called me from the dealership last night.'

'yeah, the car thing. right. that's it.'

'you know, it's funny. for a second there i thought you were going to tell me that rachel and joshua are engaged or something.'

'what made you think that?'

'i don't know, i just had that feeling. that and she called me like 11 times since 3 a.m. and left several text messages. she even called my parents' house and talked to my dad for quite some time. i have to call her back.'

I'm clairvoyant, people.

but enough about me, any man who can get up in front of a restaurant full of people to sing a song he wrote just for her automatically has my blessing to marry my best friend, anyday -- just so long as i can get the day off. congratulations, i'm so happy for you both. (just keep him away from the dingoes.)

My sister, living in the USA, got proposed to in a restaurant, and when she said yes, the entire roomful of people, strangers all, clapped and cheered. [I like that about Americans].

yeah, i guess my friend was in such a state of shock that she was frozen until someone in the audience said, 'WELL...?'

then when she accepted the crowd went wild. you're right; that's a nice thing about americans.

There is nothing more pitiful than a man in love. We simply fall on all four and act goofy. Oh dear...

How incredibly sweet. He sounds like a keeper. Your friend's reaction makes it only more adorable. Congratulations to them both.

Funny non-conversation, though....

I'm with dcver: love makes fools of us all. It makesus do things that we look back upon and then cringe...

Awwwwww... I must agree... any guy that can get up in front of a bunch of strangers to sing a song he wrote is a keeper (or creepy, but we'll go with keeper in this case).

How long have they been together?

i must say, it takes balls to get up and do that, especially when you never perform for people, but this guy is seriously talented. he's working on an album and i've heard some of it. really amazing.

and he's a keeper for many other reasons, too.
