ups and downs of everything ordinary

"We won!" Caitlin didn't even know anything about football. She never went to the games in high school. She always hung out in her room watching J Pop on You Tube. Now Megan was dating an exotic guy.

She squeezed in sitting on Zeke's lap. They'd made room for Randi and Noel. Of course, she could tell Zeke wasn't so fond of sitting next to Noel. Maybe that's why she'd sat in his lap most of the game, as if he'd know she was near and dear to him. Of course, she kept spilling popcorn on him. But it was getting cold and she loved being this close to Zeke. Yet, not so much to Noel.

However, it looked that Randi was making an effort. Her arm looped around Noel's. Naturally, Noel was Mr. Oblivious. Randi made plans with Caitlin though. There was the China buffet brunch next weekend. Randi wanted the four of them to do things together. She was already talking about the next home game.

"You have to like her." Caitlin informed Zeke once they got home.

"I have too?" Zeke slightly winced.

"You know, what I mean. It'll be good for all of us to get to know each other." Caitlin told him as they were getting ready for bed. Zeke was brushing his teeth.

"Like what? Me, doing something with Noel? Like... lifting weights?" He looked at Caitlin funny.

"Did I say that?" Caitlin liked the idea of going out with another couple.

"What about Smed and Natalie? Or even Megan and Dung?" Zeke threw that out there.

"I guess." But Caitlin liked the idea of Randi and Noel being neutral, where as the others..it might be difficult. "Just say you'll do it."

"OK." But it sounded a little forced.

She kissed him on the cheek. She'd shut up about it. Besides, there were better things to do than talk about other people. She turned off the light to let him find her in bed.
