The Closest Things to a

Scene on My Best's Friend Wedding

Reference Scene

George Downes: Michael's chasing Kimmy?
Julianne Potter: Yes!
George Downes: You're chasing Michael?
Julianne Potter: YES!
George Downes: Who's chasing you... nobody, get it? There's your answer. It's Kimmy.

Actual Scenes

X = the troubled female
J = member of the opposite sex X digs
B' = member of the opposite sex X went on an alleged "date" with
M = female friend of X

Situation 1:
X and M were on a line for a free lunch
B' and J were also on the same line, a person apart from X and M
X and M were talking
B' saw X and nodded acknowledgedly, might be wanting to strike a small conversation
X and M still talking to each other
X finally stroke a conversation with B'
B', X, and M immediately were in a group conversation
When B' and M talked with each other, X sneakily stroke a conversation with J, involving a high five
B' eagerly joined on the conversation

Situation 2:
X and M sat together at the lunch
B' and J went their separate ways
After lunch J suddenly came over and sat beside X (he would stay until the end of the day)
B' still sat at his seat
J and X involved in a very moving conversation about everything and nothing
X thought she saw B' looking at her and J several times

With those situations firmly recorded on her mind, X is now confused on who is "chasing" who.

--> denotes one-way "chasing"
<--> denotes mutual

1. B'-->X-->J (who is J "chasing"? Answer: Tall, skinny, curly, dark-haired hottie)
2. B'--> J or vice versa (LOL, Bu Didi, you're too funny!)
3. J<-->X
4. X--> J or B' (shooting-for-the-star-landing-on-a-moon mentality)

1, 2, and 3 are highly unlikely. 4 is what's really happening.

And I'm officially stressed out I came up with the silliest post. I've started to write my dissertation officially yesterday. We'll see how I survive.
