Twenty Seconds.

"All it takes is 20 seconds of insane courage and great things will happen.
I promise."
-We Bought a Zoo

We walked into Sparks and he was the first person I saw.
A striped long sleeve henley, and jet black hair.
He was there with one other guy friend.
They sat at a corner table and when we finally got seated, 
we were in the perfect spot across from them.
He and I made eye contact multiple times throughout the night.
We could tell they were getting ready to leave and so one of my good wingmen insisted I buy him a drink.
So we had the waitress send over a drink with a paper that said,
"Enjoy the drink! 
My phone number.
He smiled and waved when the drink was brought over.
Then they got up to leave.
He came over and introduced himself.
Then a few minutes after they left, 
I got a text message.
And after a few clever texts,
We made a date.
For tonight.

Things like that happen in movies and I never thought it would work for me.
Well for all the single ladies out there, a little bit of bravery goes a long way.
And sure, there is a chance he could end up being weird.
Or we may never speak again after tonight.
But karma has a way of working everything out.
And if you put yourself out there, something good will come eventually.
So, send a stranger a drink.
And wish me luck with my stranger.
