While Jesse spending time this past summer at the Grand Lake, OK, she met a couple also staying at the lake with the friends she was mooching off of, I mean visiting. This couple mentioned several times that they had a friend that Jesse should meet – the perfect guy for her. The young man, Mathew, had gone to college at OSU, was a statistics major, lived on a ranch in Waurika, and his father worked for Halliburton. From what the couple said, Mathew sounded interesting. Eventually, he was given Jesse’s email, and he recently wrote to her. They decided to meet for lunch. Jesse’s friends Lindsay and Alan would be there to chaperone and make it a party – not a date. We have some "different" views on dating which I may explain later or never. Anyway, the plan was set in motion and the time and place picked out. Jesse told us that Lindsay and Alan had been teasing her that they were going to do "wild things" during the lunch meeting. Knowing Lindsay and Alan, just being themselves would be wild enough and probably pretty intimidating for someone who has never met them. Toby and I teased Jesse that we might show up wearing disguises – just to check this guy out. Poor Jes!
Of course we were just teasing her, but then the joke was just too good to pass up. So, I bought some cheap Groucho Marx glasses with the big nose and bushy eyebrows. We got to the restaurant early and started eating. We hoped Jesse and Lindsay would show up, and we would put on our disguises – just for them – figuring Lindsay would probably pee her pants when she saw us. We did not really care about checking out Mathew (although that would be okay too). The joke was more for Lindsay and Jesse. Toby and I had a good laugh at each other wearing the silly glasses. We could hardly eat our lunch. But our plan was spoiled. They chose to eat at different restaurant and did not tell us (I wonder why?). I think Jesse might have been on to our ways. Oh well, it would have been a good joke, and we got a good laugh.
If you are like me, you want to know how the lunch meeting went. Jesse said Mathew was very nice, tall and thin, and fun to be with. They had a good time - but "he was not the one" for her. They invited him to join their group of unmarried friends and do things with them from time to time – that was it.
