Phoebe: We can be guys. Come on, let us be guys.
Chandler: You don’t want to be guys, you’d be all hairy and you wouldn’t live as long. –Friends
I’ve been hanging out more and more with The Friend Zone and Birthday Twin. I love just kicking back the three of us. It’s nice to be one of the guys again, I haven’t had that in a long while. It’s also nice because having the trio keeps The Friend Zone from feeling like something is going to happen with us. The only problem I’m having is I can sense the chemistry between myself and Birthday Twin.
The nickname is fairly obvious, we have the same birthday. But it gets weirder; it’s even the same year! We both have a brother who is two years older, and we both suffer from nervous tummies. We have a lot of the same views and opinions on life in general, and when we figured out we had the same allergies to dust mite I just couldn’t stop laughing. It’s too weird to meet your male counterpart. Don’t get me wrong though, some of these similarities are the exact reasons I wouldn’t date him. The things I find to be annoying or problematic with myself I also see in him.
The trio thing was working out great, until the other day, when Friend Zone called me drunk. He said that he wasn’t blind and he knew that there was something between me and Birthday Twin. He then proceeded to give his blessing. He said that we should totally hook up and that it would be fine by him, and to have fun. Then he puts Birthday Twin on the phone, and I had no idea what to say. I just was sort of flabbergasted. I just laughed and said, maybe we can hang out, maybe not. So I’m not sure what’s going to happen there, but he would definitely be a fun guy to play with. So much for being just one of the guys.
