Dream I Had About Going Back In Time. Gettin' It On. Avatar.



I had a bunch of weird dreams last night. In one, I was on a reality TV show where you get hooked up to an Avatar (like in the movie Avatar) and you travel back in time and go on dates again that you had in high school.

I'm not kidding. I really had this dream. Sadly though, the dream ended before I went on the date. And that sucks because I was hoping to relive one of the dates/hookups that I most regret.

It was the Summer between 11th and 12th grade and I actually called up a girl that had just graduated because my sister ran into her at a party and she said I should call her. And I was floored because I only knew her from art class. She was really cool and she was hot. A blond haired, short cute chick. A year older and a year more experienced.

So I called her up and asked her out. And I couldn't believe she said yes. We go out on the date, and we ended up cruising around and parking*. She was into The Who so I pop in the cassette of Who's Next. Then we start making out. Then "heavy petting". Then it was getting more and more heated. Her pants are off and shirt is open. Everything except "it" happened. And I have no idea why I didn't round home. My policy before then had always been, "Keep going until they say no". Then, ask again...perhaps beg. I don't know.

But it always bothered me because we never went out again. I really can't remember if I never called her or if I called her and she said no. And I don't know how I can even forget because here was this cool, hot chick and..well...I feel like I blew it. Maybe it's because I liked her and thought that I better not go all the way and ruin it.

It also could have been that around this time I was kind of shy. I wasn't shy around my friends but sometimes around strangers and girls I would clam up. About a year later for some reason I got major confidence and my mission in life was to meet girls. Everything revolved around it and I had no inhibitions about approaching women. And it turns out, that's the key I found. Opening up your trap and talking you stupid idiot.

I think I'll have write some more posts to go deeper into this subject. Anyone else have any dating regrets?

*The picture above shows the actual car that was used. Same color too! Except Ricardo Montalban wasn't there. That I know of.

...Maybe if Ricardo had been my guardian dating angel things might have turned out differently.

Alice said...

aw, haha, that's a good story Zibbs. I could write a book about all of the wierd dates I've had, including one with a guy who actually said "see ya later, man" as he walked away from me at the end of the night. LOL Dick. Ugh. I actually hate dating now and I seem to have the worst taste in men. Either that or the options are just not good to begin with. hahahaha

Dr Zibbs said...

See ya later man. Oh my God. Classic.

Chemgeek said...

I would have assumed that a car like that came with a Ricardo Montalban as a standard feature. It's not like size was ever an issue.

Dr Zibbs said...

Chemgeek - I would have prefered if Tattoo came with it.

Kristen said...

Awesome dream concept, but why do we always wake up before the good parts?

Since I don't have a single dating regret (but rather many), I would just go back in time to cruise around with Ricardo Montalban (you can keep Tattoo, kinky man).

If Ricardo had been there you wouldn't have even made it to first base.
My dating regrets were going too far too soon.

Maybe you didn't go all the way cuz you didn't wanna stain the Corrrinthian leather.

Dr Zibbs said...

Kristen - I know. It stinks when I wake up and the good part didn't happen. Sometimes I'll try to go back to sleep and think about what I was dreaming. It only works once in a while.

Cordoba !

Dr Zibbs said...

T-Ro - HAHAHA. Yes. The Smooth Corinthian Leather. It was very nice but next to impossible to remove stains from it.

Gwen said...

I want an Avatar so I can laze around in my underwear while it does all my chores and errands.

JenJen said...

honey I love it when you post things that make you seem human and sensitive.
Aw.
And? You totally blew it. I was so...wait.
She was so ready.

(for the record: NOT ME. Zibbs is like WAY too old for me.thanks.)

Alice said...

JenJen... LOL No kidding, what is he like, 40? ew. :P

Dr Zibbs said...

40? I wish.

Dr Zibbs said...

I'm the same age as Nick Cage.

Alice said...

You act young. That's all that matters. haha

I went on a date with a 35yr old who may as well have been 60 a few months back. Then I've been on dates with people older than that who seem so much younger. Amazing.

JMUmonty said...

Zibbs. Do you think that we could rent one of these old cars, and you and me cruise the Dub-C one night, trying to find a willing 18 year old for you to re-enact this with? It could be cathartic, like rebirthing therapy. I'll jump the grenade if she's got a friend who's at least 18.

AbelPetSupply said...

Didn't you drive that to the last Tweetup? I could have sworn I saw in leave in it...the one with the curb feelers?

The thing about dating is that it all comes down to your mentality, on how you see it. I have had this wonderful dating experience which might be quite surprising for many people who read this.
