Gary From The Block

(The Gary Chronicles I II III IV)

Gary, complete with leather jacket and matching slacks, settled down next to me at a lecture earlier this semester. In typical fashion, we got to talking about Gary, and his lady troubles.

Gary's long term ex had been a pretty asian girl called Nicole, and Gary talked about how he was basically over her, and although it was a shame how things ended, he was pleased to have moved on. One of the ways Gary had moved on was to go on a date with another asian girl. I'll let Gary and his crisp Indian accent take it from here...

"I'm a bit hesitant about seeing anyone again, but I had decided to do the right thing and get out and meet girls again, so I invite this girl in one of my tutes to go out on a date.

"I say to her that I will meet her at the Box Hill station.

"I get there, and well, there are lots of asian girls there. Um... I couldn't recognise which one was her. There were a few that could have been her, but I wasn't sure which was her.

"So I am like panicking, I'm way out of my depth, I still couldn't work out which one was her. So I called her, said I was feeling sick, and asked her to meet me at a particular spot.

"I decided to not see her again after that."

An unfortunate choice of a meeting spot...

Poor Gary, he isn't having much luck

See...I have the same problem with dickwit exes.

After a while they all blur into one.

I'm then forced to ask embarassing questions like "Are YOU the one that I went overseas with?", or "Are YOU the one that I was going to marry?"

Or "Are you ONE OF THE ONES that cheated on me?"

So confusing. They all look the same.

But poor Gary. Yes.

It sounds like it would have been a very...special...relationship.

(What with such an auspicious start and all)

Gary has, from time to time, singlehandedly kept this blog afloat.

On that note, i'm contemplating what do to once uni finishes for the year. Maybe a summer blog?
