In which I make a complete idiot of myself in front of the hottest guy at my church.

I had a softball game last night. Michael was there. Of course! I don't know why that surprised me, since his sister is playing softball too. Duh, Dara!

We lost the softball game 12-2. TEN FREAKING RUNS! But I made a pretty good save. I was playing 3rd and Stephanie threw me the ball but I dropped it so I went down to grab it and put my knee on the base just in time to tag the runner out. Woo-hoo!

We still lost though.

After the game, Tori and Shelby and I were standing around by the field and Michael was talking a few yards in front of us.
Tori: "I see him." Me: "How can you see him if you've never met him or seen a picture of him?" Shelby: "He's the only one with black hair and that's what you said he dyed it." Me: "Oh."
I looked up and saw him and all of a sudden a few hundred-billion monarch butterflies migrated to my stomach and my feet were somehow rooted to the concrete.
Tori: "Go talk to him." Me: "He's busy talking to Saphraine..." Shelby: "Dang, Dara! He is hooot. I want to meet him."
We walked up to him. He saw me and smiled and then my insides turned to jello along with the rest of my body. I gave him a little sideways-hug and said, "Michael this is Tori. And this is Shelby." And I looked back up at him and he was looking at me. It made me tingley so I looked back at Tori.
Saphraine came up and gave me a hug. She came right between Michael and me but I don' t think it was on purpose. So we were standing there, just sorta talking, except Michael wasn't really talking to me...which only made me a tiny bit upset.

Then Sarah called me over and so I walked over to her and she had this very solemn expression and said, "Be careful." so I said, "Okay." And then we were going to the car, past Michael and everyone, so I went arm-in-arm with Tori (somewhere we lost Shelby and Bailzey). I was pulling to the right, the farthest from Michael but then Tori pulled me over toward where Michael was and I slipped and fell right behind him. I got up and didn't dare to look back. God, that was embarrasing. And normally when I do stupid stuff like that I think its funny, but I was beet-red when I did it that time.

I. Am. Such. A. Nervous. Jelly-ish. Mess.

Help. Me.
