Can You Pick The Right Blizzard Buddy?
You invited your coworker Mara for a drink after work without realizing how bad the snow would get in just a few hours. Now you feel bad sending her home so you offer to let her stay. It takes you guys like two hours to realize that you have NOTHING in common besides work and the rest of the blizzard is unending small talk.
You thought it would be a good idea to invite Julian over for the snowstorm. He's cute, you're cute...and whatever happened would happen, right? WRONG. He's literally the biggest asshole you've ever met. Won't stop talking about all the other people he's slept with and how cool his friends think he is. Now you're stuck with him for a whole weekend. LOL have fun.
Obinde is actually pretty cool, and under different circumstances he'd be a great guy to hang out with, but he's the kind of introvert that loves to hang out for a while but gets bitchy when he reaches his limit. Now he's just taking up room on your couch looking at stuff on your laptop and giving you one-word answers. Maybe he needs a nap.
You sent a text to the wrong person and Latika showed up. You barely know her. Oh my god, she's going to be here overnight. Oh my god.
Through a series of crazy circumstances, your friend's dad ended up snowed into your apartment. It's a little nice because he fixed your leaky sink and he hung up a few picture frames you had laying around...but you feel like you have to be on your guard around him. You can't just plop out on the couch like a lump with a dad in your house! He's probably going to want dinner too.
Yo Beth is awesome! She brought five bottles of wine and has passwords to TV sites you haven't even heard of. Because you're hosting, she even made you a grilled cheese sandwich with the nice kind of cheddar and heated up a can of tomato soup. Always invite Beth over for a blizzard. Always.
Hey Christine, this is fun and all but um...do you want to do anything ELSE besides watch The Tudors? Don't get me wrong, it's a great series but we all know what happens to Henry and it's been NINE hours. Oh, we're almost done with season 3? Season 4 is the best one? OK. That's...fine.
You offered to babysit for your upstairs neighbor while she was coming late from work but now she's snowbound in midtown and you're stuck with little Edwin. To be fair, he's a really cool kid. He's really into sharks and mostly keeps to himself if you give him something to do but you have a CHILD in your APARTMENT for an ENTIRE WEEKEND. Edwin's mom owes you big time.
Gamon seems to think that your place is a hotel. Ordinarily you're pretty good friends but you've never spent this much time with him and you didn't realize how entitled he was. You're happy to be a good host but he was really mean to you when you didn't have the kind of beer he liked and doesn't even push in his chair when he's done eating. You'll have a talk with him about this later, when you're not literally forced to hang out with each other.
