Or maybe she's thinking of breaking up with me.
I know some of you are thinking "Damian, you silly derp. That's quite the jump you're making. Why would you assume something like that?".
Well you see, Theresa is known for her cold shoulder. She can ignore someone for months on end and have no problems with it. That's actually how she broke up with her last boyfriend. She just stopped talking with him, avoided him for a couple months and they just drifted apart.
I couldn't let the same happen to me. There had to be a way to get her to talk to me again but also make it a positive occasion.
And then I notice something on Reddit. Something from the My Little Pony subreddit.
My Little Pony toys were being offered at McDonald's.
Theresa loves My Little Pony. Theresa loves Happy Meals.
I was going to go get her Happy Meals with My Little Pony toys and everything will be better.
I am a genius.
Unless it's Pinkie Pie. Good lord does she hate Pinkie Pie.
So I run out one afternoon and make my purchase at the nearest McDonald's and somehow manage to get a few words out of Theresa. Enough to convince her to meet up with me after class so I can give her this stuff.
And you know what? It worked.
It was nice to see her smile and laugh again. Seriously, she's been miserable for the last two weeks due to all the exams, presentations and seminars that Pharmacy has been throwing at her. Though I think she was more amused that a grown man walked into McDonald's to buy Happy Meals for the My Little Pony toys.
And then we sat down and watched her favorite pony be mean to her least favorite one.
She's still teasing me about buying the Happy Meals but whatever, she's talking to me again. And you know what, maybe I did overreact a bit, I'm probably too paranoid for my own good.
But better safe than sorry. Lack of communication is a killer to any relationship.
