Blowjob Anyone?

So, in the beginning of time! When Calvin and I parted after our first date, he sent me a text about how all the way home, he had the song, 'Something tells me I'm into something good" stuck in his head. As soon as I heard that, I went to my iTunes and looked for that song. I found it and top rated it AND added it to my iPod. I played it one day at his place from the iPod.

In our first few weeks of dating, Calvin got a job offer from NASA as in (National Aeronautics and Space Administration). Not as an astronaut! He called me one afternoon and told me that he decided against that job,  he has been at his current job, working for government for five years and likes the people he works with. Calvin told me that he was sad that he was no longer going to have a NASA t-shirt. That was the one thing he was definitely looking forward to. I remember asking him why he didn't just ask them to send it to her considering they had already ordered one for him.

After that conversation, I decided to go online and look up NASA T-shirts. I wanted to get Cal one in his favorite color: green or red. I didn't see any that I like in those colors, plus I had already seen that he had t-shirts in those colors. I also saw that they had those T-Shirts at Target. Target is a mile away from my house, versus ordering it online and having to wait for them to ship it to me. On my way to Cal's one weekend, I went to Target, got him one of those NASA T-shirts and a giant packet of mixed Pistachios and Cashews, both his favorite nuts. I was lucky to find that kind of a mix. The pistachios were already de-shelled, thank goodness. You don't want to get someone something that they have to work so hard at.

I was so excited driving to Cal's. I took the t-shirt out first, told him that I felt bad that he was no longer going to be able to rock a NASA t-shirt, so here we are! His very own! He was so happy! He told me that he never expected me to get him anything. Then I told him that I didn't know if he was going to like the t-shirt or not, so as backup, I  got him 'there'! I took out the big thing of nuts. He was so excited! He told me that he didn't even know that they they sell de-shelled pistachios. Score!

After all that fuzziness, we headed out to Manhattan beach. I had jokingly told Cal one day, when he mentioned fishing, that  I had never been and would give him head if he took me fishing. He was like whoa! Anyway, we started off at the shopping centre, bought a few things for our fishing trip. Blow Job anyone?

It was a nice drive out there, more than an hour. Hot as heck! We must have driven around for  minutes looking for parking. I would have totally left but Cal was determined. We finally parked and walked towards the beach. I was looking forward to my first fishing experience. We weren't there for long, we stood on the pier, Calvin taught me how to bait and throw the rod, whatever the correct terminology is. We must have been there for 45 minutes or so, then we made our way towards the water. I sat and too videos while Calv skim boarded. I had never heard of skim boarding until I met Calvin. He's not bad at it too! I really enjoy watching him in his own element.

I took a few pictures of him and some videos, of course this random lady walked towards him and started up a conversation about skim boarding. Apparently, she was there with her son who was into skim boarding as well. I just watched from a distance, Calvin called me and asked me to bring his stuff, he offered the lady's some something to put on the board to prevent slipping off. After that, the lady and I ended up standing and chatting. She asked me a lot of questions about Calvin and I. Apparently, she was on vacation from the east coast, blah blah blah.

After all those shenanigans, we headed to the car, paid for more parking and found a seafood restaurant. It was an expensive one! Right by the sea! We had Oysters and Crabs and something else. By then, it was late. We made our way back to Cal's. It was late, I was pooped as I always was after spending a day with Calvin. He is very energetic, I am a home-buddy, so one of us (pointing at self), always gets exhausted after spending a day out. Calvin is a great cook and barbecuer, he would always make something delish for me to eat, usually something I had never had before. I am always game for that kinda stuff!

One afternoon, we were at Calvin's just chilling, I think I had spent the night there, it was the following day, Sunday. I mentioned that I would love to see Calvin Climb a tree, that's one of his plethora of hobbies. He was like, 'let's go right now!' We loaded the truck and headed out. I was like f*ck yeah, let's do it! We went to the park, Cal suited up and got on that tree. It was a beautiful thing seeing him climb that tall ass, big ass tree like that. People around the park were watching too. It was pretty awesome.

That afternoon, we went back to his house, got into bed and just napped like the old people that we are. Not before we went to the store and got some snacks though. At the risk of sounding corny, we were spooning, I am the small spoon. In my past experience in South Africa, when you meet a guy, he asks for your number and you give it to him, then you're basically a couple. He better not be seen with someone else. Here, in the States, things are different. There's talking, just talking to someone without any labels, then there's dating, then, you can stay dating, or be friends with benefits or you can have 'the talk' and become exclusive, all these stages can make it fun if you're with the right person, who also wants what you do. While spooning, Calvin was like, Brook, I want you to be my girlfriend! It was the best thing I had heard in a very long time. Not only did I feel so American in that moment, I also felt like this guy and I were on the same page. He might just be that guy that I had wanted all this time, that guy that I hoped he would be.

I said yes!
