|How did that happen?

While I was home over the weekend I met a girl. On a whim I invited her to this year's St. Barbara's Day Ball. St. Barb is the patron saint of field artillary. Ft. Sill celebrates her saint day annually since we are primarily an artially post. To my utter surprise my invite was accepted. She was downright excited about it. That by itself threw me for a loop. Today I got a text from her. My immediate thought was a change of mind (birds fly, fish swim, women cancel plans with me. sort of a natural law). Instead, she tells me she mentioned the ball to her roommate and now she'd like to go. "Do you have any friends who'd like to take her?" I'm totally dicombobulated here. I've got a woman saying 'yes' to me, she's actually excited about it, and now I'm asked to play matchmaker! I think I fell into an alternate time stream or something.
