‘Meet’ means to snog and so does ‘go with’ – 26th October 1999

[Were there any awful terms for snogging at your school?!]

Tuesday 26th I ended up going into town today like we’d arranged last night. I rang Oscar this morning and he said Aled was coming so all the way to Oscar’s I was letting Lizzie know how much I was wetting myself about seeing Aled. It turned out she wasn’t much looking forward to facing Oscar either.

We got to his house and Aled was already there. I started playing with my phone for something to do and Aled decided he wanted to listen to this message that Sarah had left on which she sounded as if she’d been crying. I let Oscar hear it yesterday so he must have mentioned it to Aled.

We set off for the bus stop and Lizzie started going on about Saturday and how I’d been whinging that I was running out of time to meet* Aled and she told him about trying to wake him up and him just grinning and nodding. I think that was the most awkward point of the day actually.

*‘Meet’ means to snog and so does ‘go with’, just in case you’re getting confused. I actually think ‘meet’ is a stupid way of putting it but everyone’s saying that and I’ve kind of just picked it up.

We just saw the bus at the stop in the distance so Oscar decided to run to try and keep it there. He couldn’t. While Oscar was gone, Aled started saying how he really couldn’t remember much. He said, “I remember starting the tequila drinking contest and Karen being sick and then waking up and… erm… and just waking up. That’s all.” I think he was maybe going to say about waking up and feeling happy or whatever but remembered who it was he was talking to just before he did!

Once we got into Warrington, we walked about for a bit and met up with Zack Bain, Dev W, and Sean Fields. Soon after, the lads tried to talk us into going to Laser Quest but neither Lizzie nor I wanted to. The lads set off but stopped round the corner and tried to persuade us again. We said no so they went again.

About 10 mins later, we were looking in a shop window and the lads came back again. They’d decided to try and persuade us again but once we’d made it clear we weren’t going with them, Aled and Oscar started saying that maybe it was a bit childish at Laser Quest and maybe they wouldn’t bother going after all.

Sean went off somewhere and Zack and Dev were trying to get Oscar and Aled to go to Laser Quest but they said they’d stick with Lizzie and me for a bit and maybe go later. I think Aled might have heard Lizzie and me saying how we seemed to have control over them and that they couldn’t keep away because a few minutes later, they went.

Later on as we were getting ready to go back for the bus, some man in a white jacket walked past, staring at us. When we sat on a bench, a while later he came and sat with another man on a nearby bench. He was only young but not particularly fit or anything. He was staring again so we moved. As I turned round he waved at us and as we were going down the escalators he was stood on a corner again.

He was a bit creepy and I commented on how I wished Aled and Oscar were with us. Of course, Aled and Oscar had to be waiting for the bus with us so, when we mentioned this bloke, Lizzie had to say to Aled how I’d said I wished he’d been there. I didn’t really see his reaction.

I’d likened this bloke to Nutter so when he got on our bus from the industrial estate, it was so weird. I’ve not seen him for ages (his lip piercing’s gone) and just looking at him brought back how scared I’d been when I got that death threat and stuff. Aled commented that I’d gone really white and then he and Lizzie started miming slashing themselves. Nutter couldn’t see because he was in front of us.

Just before the lads got off the bus, Aled asked if I’d heard from Sarah. Then he said that he hated her and stuff and when I asked why he started saying something then said, “Never mind”. He also said I shouldn’t feel guilty because it’s got nothing to do with her. Er… yes it has!

I remembered something that Oscar told me yesterday about Saturday. He said Aled said to set him up with me before we got there. I’m still not convinced he likes me as much as I like him. Maybe I’m being too negative about all this.

Oscar phoned this evening and asked if I wanted to go to the cinema tomorrow night. I was the first person he’d asked but I can’t because I’ve got kickboxing. I might see him at the Trafford Centre tomorrow anyway though because I’m going with Lizzie. I wish Aled was going too.

    • Your definition of ‘go with’ makes much more sense than to kiss someone. I’ve never heard anyone say ‘making out’ here, only when I was on your side if the pond. It was already familiar from telly/films though.

      ‘Making out’ can go on my Snogging Words Map of the World which I’m totally going to create one day soon.
