Asking for a friend

14 Jun

Let me throw a scenario out there and you tell me your thoughts.

So I have this friend who has a boyfriend she’s been seeing for a few months.  Let’s call him Mister the Bread.  Typically when she and Mister the Bread hang out, they have multi-day dates.  Every other weekend.  This weekend he’s supposed to visit her, however, as it turns out he has some chest infection.  He’s been sick for a few weeks.  The conversations the last week have basically been about how he’s sleepy and is going to go and take a nap or what he should watch on TV while he lays in bed.  She’s annoyed.  They decide to postpone the visit and see how he feels tomorrow.  He wakes up from his nap and calls her.  He happens to mention he now has his kids tomorrow night which means he’s not going to visit her at all.  He says his medicine has kicked in and he’s getting sleepy again.  Because he has taken medicine with codeine, which he doesn’t need, just before he called her.  She tells him to go and take a nap.

Her plans for the evening are now wide open.

And let’s say this friend has kept in touch with someone she boned.  We’ll call him #3.  Their “relationship” transitioned easily into friendship and all of the insanely spicy messages they used to send each other were immediately stopped when she started seeing Mister the Bread.  Anyway, he takes himself out to movie dates all the time.  Learning they’re both free this evening they decide they’re going to meet up at the movie theater to see an action film.  Platonic date – everyone pays for themselves, no touching.  There’s no romancing.  She’s not even going to wear mascara or dress like she’s on a date, she’ll frump it up a bit.  This seems like a totally awesome idea, right?

On a scale of 1 to bad idea, how do you rate this scenario?

    Oh man. Tippy tap. Tippy tap. As in CODE RED. I feel like this is a bad idea. Unless you want to sleep with #3… in that case, it sorta seems like a (potentially) sure thing…

      It was totes platonic. Not inappropriate innuendos or touching at all. 🙂

    I can’t respond on Facebook because I caught a 30 day ban!
    I say Mister the Bread needs to stop being a whiny little bitch and take care of you (I mean your friend). I also agree with your other ladies who recommended cleavage and dressing up. My thoughts are a nice sun dress with a slit on the side and no panties. Then as you are sitting in the movie theater, casually whisper to him you are commando…

      What did you do now that you’ve been banned?

    As my grandmother used to say in Spanish, “where there are ashes there was once a fire”. Tread lightly on the movie front unless you are open to the possibilities.

      Donde hubo fuego, hay cenizas? Damn, that’s good!

      Yes and sad but true too.

    probably a bad idea. which I think you just want confirmation of, unless you are considering zero carbs. also, if the proverbial shoe were on the other foot, it might hurt (?)

      Zero carbs?? Come on, now! I’d never do that!
