¶ should've asked for her phone number
After dinner tonight, Karen and Dan and I decided to go check out Phoenix Landing, a small club up Mass ave. So we head on over there at around 11 pm and it's kind of empty, not too many people there. Only one girl on the dance floor by herself. So we're like, "all right, let's get this party started!" Actually, we weren't really, but I managed to get them dancing after some coaxing. The music was really good, though - it was drum and bass night and the DJ was good. People started showing up after a bit and it got pretty lively. Good scene.

Anyway, after about an hour or so, we're sitting down, taking a break. Karen gets herself a coke, we chat a little. Then this girl sits down next to me, gives me a little smile, and looks away. I don't think much of it, figured it was just a courtesy smile or something like that, so I give her a stupid grin and then turn back to Dan and Karen. Some time later, I get tired of dancing again and sit back down next to her (she hadn't moved since then). She glances at me a few times, but I'm trying not to notice (I really wasn't in the mood to meet anyone).

A few more minutes pass, and then all of a sudden, when I'm looking the other way, I feel something on my shoulder and I turn my head around and she's fallen asleep on me. I tap her on the head, thinking this girl's had one drink too many, and she jerks her head up, grins at me, and sits up straight. I'm still pretty oblivious to the world, so I just sit back and watch people tearing it up on the dance floor.

Not even a minute passes by, and I feel her head on my shoulder again. By this point I'm trying to figure out if she's actually drunk, or if this is her way of saying hello. I notice that she hasn't touched the beer she's been holding since I first saw her, so she's probably not drunk. Friendly girl. Karen and Dan look over and are like, "dude, when did that happen" and I'm like, "umm... guys.. this girl just fell asleep on my shoulder. what should I do?" Dan tells me to drink her beer.

Another ten minutes passes and it becomes obvious to me that this girl is not asleep, and I'm just trying to figure out what to do. She's kinda cute, but we haven't even exchanged a single word. Karen and Dan are both tittering at me and I'm just sitting there like a total fool. Eventually, some guy walks over and shouts at me "Don't worry! She's with me! I'll take care of her!" and then walks away. I don't think he was lying, cause I saw them together earlier, and he had also given her the beer she wasn't drinking, so now I'm trying to figure out if he's her boyfriend or not. Her head is still firmly planted on my shoulder.

Some more time passes, and while my confused brain is still trying to decide what to do, the guy comes back, shakes her, and says they're going home. As they're leaving, she turns and smiles at me. Then I feel dumb for not asking for her phone number or name or something.

I've been instructed by Karen to quote her saying "You seem to attract weird intimacy". I've also been instructed by her to post to craigslist missed connections.
