We had been texting every day and he was really boring me but everyone said to just give him another shot at a date since I did have fun on the first one. My first date with Mexico was to the zoo and it was a ton of fun so I was hoping that the trend would continue. Especially not call him twice in a row, in the middle of the work day.

And then when we moved on to the polar bears I told him that they are my favorite type of bear because my teddy bear is a polar bear and he has on an argyle sweater and hat!!
