When I was in college, I met Alexandra at the campus swimming pool. We bumped into each other on a semi-regular basis and had a really great rapport. She was from the Midwest and was trying to make friends. I was from a big city and was also into meeting new people and seeing where things went.
After some time of talking poolside in bathing suits, I asked her if she wanted to go out for dinner sometime. She said yes, and I felt like a million bucks. It's amazing how something like that can make your month.
I arranged to meet her outside of the house she subletted with some of her friends. I called to let her know that I was on my way, and her phone rang and went to voicemail. No biggie. I made it to her house and knocked on the door.
The lights were on within, and there was definitely some movement, but no one came down for about five minutes. Odd, but easily forgettable.
The door opened and one of her roommates opened it, a large girl with the biggest chest I'd ever seen. Holy God.
"Ready to go?" she asked me.
I responded, "Er... with Alexandra, yes. She here?"
"I am Alexandra."
I smiled, positive that Alexandra was playing some sort of trick on me. I had never seen this roommate of hers before. She was taller, larger in the chest region, and had much smaller eyes than the Alexandra I knew, and I had seen the girl in a bathing suit.
Sure that it was a game, I put my hand out to introduce myself. "Hi, I'm Morgan."
She shook my hand. "Alexandra. Ready to go?"
"You're not Alexandra. Where is she?"
"Yes I am. I'm from Missouri, my father's a doctor, my mother's a paralegal. I have two brothers. I am Alexandra."
Okay... weird. But I was equal to it. I asked, "What was the name of your first pet? We talked about it at the pool last week."
She shook her head and said, "I'm not playing this game. Are we going out or not?"
"I'm not playing a game. Where's Alexandra?"
"Okay," she said, and closed the door in my face. I tried Alexandra's number again, and it went right to voicemail.
When I saw her from the pool from then on, which was rare, she completely ignored me.
