It’s Getting Awkward

Hi! How are you today? Feeling bold and confident? That’s cool… I don’t feel so self-assured these days.

It all started at the beginning of the week. Talking Angela asked me to go to the cinema with her. Usually, I’d be super excited to go, but my cool new video game just arrived – me and Talking Ben had been waiting for it for weeks. So… I asked Angela if we could maybe, just maybe, reschedule our cinema trip. Ouch. That did not go well. She was furious. But, my friends, I was firm and I stuck to my decision. For a couple of minutes. OK, seconds. In the end I went to the movies with Angela, which of course did not make Ben happy. So… it wasn’t a great start to the week.

Talking Hank, on the other hand, had a blast. He decided he needed to reconnect with nature. And he did it totally Hank style – basically hugging every tree in the park. Well, not every tree, but a lot of them. He rolled in the grass, did some intense bird-watching and talked to the frogs. He loved every moment of it. Until he got bored and went back home to watch TV shows. Typical Hank.

Watching TV did no good for me this week. Don’t know why, but I decided to watch bits and pieces of a dating show. That was a big mistake. I became convinced that I needed to ask Angela on a date. Awkward. I may have gone a bit overboard with my “ask out” technique though. Dunno…Watch Episode 2 and make your own judgement!

What do you think? I admit, it didn’t go as smoothly as it usually does. But that happens, right? Although not usually to me. Hmm…. But I shouldn’t worry too much, next week is just around the corner and I’m positive it’ll be a great one! Come back soon to see if I’m right. Bye!
