Ben likes Tim because he is kind of quiet and doesn’t talk all of the time, which is great for someone like him who gets impatient when someone is talkative.
A few more stories to write and then Ben is almost done for the afternoon. He knows he is going to go to a bonfire with his neighbor Tim later and they will play some music and sing while enjoying a fire on the beach. It should be an amazing time and Ben will carry his djembe drum and jam with his bandmate a bit while they all chill around the fire. He is hoping that Tim can go, but he first needs to wait for his text to see if he is able to go tonight. They will have heating from the fire, as it gets chilly at night when the sunlight goes down, so keeping warm is essential and a fireplace is a great way to do that. Ben likes Tim because he is kind of quiet and doesn’t talk all of the time, which is great for someone like him who gets impatient when someone is talkative. They met a while back when Ben installed an HVAC system in his apartment, but he never got his number so Ben is asking his friend to have Tim contact him. He liked him too but he wasn’t into him so maybe he won’t want to be the middleman in this and will tell Ben he can’t help him. They both work at the cooling corp and Ben hopes that he doesn’t get weird about him wanting to get his number from him. If not, then Ben is sure he’ll see Tim and get it from him if all goes well.
