|OMG!!! I can't believe that I did that...

I asked him out.
I ASKED HIM OUT!!!
Well, it all started when I got this ingenious plan to ask him to Senior Bowling Night. Ma biche told me that he would never do anything first, so I realized that if I want this, I have to take charge.
So today there was an assembly at school. Boy #1 came in a bit late and we waved to each other as he walked past where I was sitting. Afterwards, when it was lunch time, I started freaking out and told my friends that I couldn't go through with it. I am soooo incredibly shy around boys, especially ones that I don't know very well, or that I like. He happens to fall under both categories, which makes this even funner for me (note the sarcasm). Anyways, so my friends grab onto me and tell me to do it. I slipped out of their grip and ran away, as he walked off in the other direction.
I pulled myself together, and decided that I HAD TO DO IT. So I went off in search of him. Definitely couldn't find him. Right when I was about to give up, I saw him walking with some people towards the cafeteria. I ran through the hallway towards the lobby, so that I could come out and "run into" him. When I was about to leave the lobby, I saw him talking to some people, so I was like "I'm in the lobby and 'm chill". Herein follows my stream of consciousness:
"I'm chill and in the lobby"
"I'm buying a diet coke and I'm chill and in the lobby"
"OMG HE'S COMING IN"
"He's talking with those people by the vending machines"
"I'm drinking my diet coke and I'm chill and I'm still in the lobby"
"I'm going to look at these pretty pictures until he notices me"
"He isn't noticing"
"Oh, he's leaving and not noticing me"
"I'm right behind him and he's still not noticing me"
So I tapped him on the shoulder, and he turned around, said "Hi", and gave me a half hug (which cause SOOO many butterflies). So I walked alongside him and we had some casual conversation, and he said "Hi" to a couple of people. So we were just having this conversation and I asked "Are you going to Senior Bowling Night?". He asked when it was, and I told him, and he said that he wasn't sure. So I'm about to pluck up the nerve to ask him when this football mom who is standing with a security guard says "Hi" to him and gives him a hug.
Now, she see's me, and starts doing all this weird "OOooohhhh, who's this?" kinda thing and in my mind I'm like "AWKWARD!!!", cause I'm right about to ask him out. So he introduced me and they chat for a little bit and she continues this "Oooohhh Boy #1's got a girlfriend" tone. We walk away, and I begin the most ineloquent asking outage ever...
"So. I. Was. Wondering. If. You'd. Like. To. Go. With. Me. Cause. Ihadfunatthegameandwouldreallyliketogettoknowyoubetter..."
He kinda smiled and looked at me. I don't remember if he said anything just then because I was so overcome with my own lameness and stupidity. He then gave me his number, and said for me to call him, and that we'd "keep in touch" (the last part kinda scared me, cause it sounded like a business meeting). So then we parted.
After school, I was walking with my friends and I saw him and he waved and called out "Miss Davis". That's the second time today that I was walking with people he knows better than I, and he waved ONLY TO ME! I hope that's a good sign. Though I don't know what to make to the fact that he continues to call me "Miss Davis".
So I'm a bit confused. I really don't know what to make of it. I'm not entirely sure if he said "Yes". And if he did, when do I call him and what do I say? And then does it make it a "we're friends getting to know each other better" or a "date". GAH! So much confusion.
So sorry that this went a bit long. I wasn't expecting it to.
