Mason:  Don’t let me interrupt…

Amanda:  So what’s going on?

Mason:  I just kinda finished a date.

Amanda:  A what?

Mason:  Well I met this girl Hilary…

Amanda:  A girl?

Mason:  She works at the Hot Dog on a Stick. I mean, I tell ya…

Amanda:  Are you serious?

Mason:  ...I know she looks kinda lame, but uh, you see her out of that uniform. Whoa-oh-ho. Man.

Amanda:  Is she a hot dog on a stick?

Mason:  I didn’t think of that, but yeah, she is one hot dog. Uh…

Amanda:  So what do you like about her? Is she smart? Good with her hands?

Mason:  You know, like, she’s got really good hair. She’s blond. Really pretty.

Amanda:  I…I have great hair.

Mason:  Yeah, you do have great hair. You know…

Amanda:  Did you say she was skinny?

Mason:  Yeah, I mean, you know. I didn’t really notice…

Amanda:  As opposed to…me?

Mason:  She’s not fat or anything. I guess she kinda looks a lot like you.

Amanda:  But skinny?

Mason:  A lot like you.

Amanda:  Are you gonna call her?

Mason:  Well totally. I mean, I’m kinda…like how long should I wait? What’s the appropriate amount of time? Like two days?

Amanda:  I think I heard, like friend to friend…is girls don’t like being called.

Mason:  I should wait for her to call me?

Amanda:  Yeah.

Mason:  You sure?

Amanda:  Totally. I wouldn’t steer you wrong. You’re my friend.

Discussion

Mason sits down next to Amanda and she tries to cuddle with him a little. Mason is surprised and she backs off saying, “We’re friends.”

He begins telling her about a date he went on with a girl named Hilary who works at a hot dog stand. Amanda jokingly asks if she’s a hot dog, meaning, “Is she attractive?”

Mason says that she is and he begins to describe her. He says he likes her hair, but for some reason Amanda asks if he said she’s skinny. Could Amanda be insecure about her weight? That would be crazy! Look how thin she is.

Then Amanda tells Mason that even though he likes Hilary, he shouldn’t call her. It’s terrible advice. She’s trying to sabotage Mason’s relationship with Hilary. But Mason trusts her and says he won’t call her.

What do you think is going to happen to Amanda and Mason? Do you think he’ll ever notice that she likes him? Have you ever liked someone who didn’t realize it? Watch this soap opera unfold every Tuesday right here on Ebaby!

I think it is enough for Mason to realize that Amanda likes him. He seems to be poor in this kinds of thing. :)

Wow, Oh my gosh. It is a difficult topic to talk about. I saw that Amando is so crazy for Mason, but he is just thinking about another person. Auch, it really hurts.


I don’t have any word to say because it is difficult. I think she should talk with him and say I love you, and go for it. 


Hope she feels better after hear it.

Each woman is a bit of jealous. In this video, it is quite clear that she wants to put Mason off Hilary. I think she goes well on it.

 Amanda’s method to steer Mason wrong is not fair, and sooner or later he’ll understand her behavior: she’s jealous of him and possessive. I think it’s better for her to confess her crush on him. Less complications.
