Only The Lonely

Once, I took _____ swimming at LH's pool. I wanted to do laps and she wanted to tan. It was hot, and so at one point, she went up to LH's apartment to get a glass of water. While she was gone, a girl I went to high school with, MM (who lives in the apartment complex), happened to notice me while she was tanning on a nearby sunchair. I didn't expect to see her, but I'd seen her around town before, so it wasn't a huge surprise. She came over, and we started making smalltalk about what we had been doing. When _____ got back, she saw me talking to MM, and walked past us back to her chair without saying anything. LH eventually came down, and he joined in talking with MM and I. After she left, I swam a bit more, and _____ and I left. _____ was clearly upset with me, and showed it, as angry females do, by giving me the silent treatment. Initially, I couldn't understand why, but after a second it hit me that she was upset that I was talking to MM. I thought she was being silly, because after all, it was just some boyfriended girl I knew from high school who I wasn't even attracted to. I tried to explain that to her, but she wouldn't hear it.

I let her pout in the car on the way home, and when we were about halfway there, I put in For The Lonely: 18 Greatest Hits, a Roy Orbison compilation. I put on the eighteenth track, the popular "Oh Pretty Woman." I began serenading her with my best Orbison impression, and after a minute, elicited a smile from her. We got home before the song was over, but I kept singing it to her through the parking lot. By the time we were stopped, she tore off her seatbelt and began passionately kissing me. It was almost as if my singing that song to her was like some kind of forgiving aphrodesiac; she couldn't keep her hands off me. We groped and kissed in the car for awhile, but I had to go to work, so I dropped her off. If she was angry, jealous, and upset when she sat down in the passenger's seat, her mood upon exiting the car was the polar opposite. She gave me a flirty good-bye, and was smiling as she drove away.

Later, I brought up the subject of why she was so mad at me. I figured out that I hadn't mentioned to her that I knew MM previously, and realized that _____ thought I was just picking up on some random girl that was at the pool. After I cleared that up, I was completely forgiven.

How powerful is music? I initially felt pretty proud of myself for getting out of the doghouse (even if it was a misunderstanding) as easily as I did. The more I thought about it, the more humbled I was--I didn't do anything, it was really all thanks to Roy Orbison.
