We were at a party, and something wasn't quite right.
"Are you upset with me?"
"No. Don't worry about it."
He wasn't the least bit convincing, so I pushed.
"Are you irked at me?"
"Eh... not irked..."
"Are you miffed at me?"
"Yeah, miffed. I would say so."
I asked, even though I kind of already knew.
Maybe I shouldn't have invited my friend who maybe possibly has a thing for me. (But we are so clearly friends! And he's seeing someone now!) Maybe I should've told the middle school boyfriend that A and I are together before he got there. (But we aren't anything anymore! And he totally has a man crush on you!)
Before A, I'd been single for nearly three years... I'm allowed an adjustment period, no?
