Uh-oh... Make mine a Tuesday??
In honor of Valentine's Day, I wanted to share how my husband and I first met-- or at least first began dating. If you already know the story... forgive me. I won't keep telling it after this-- or maybe I will.
We grew up in the same "blink-and-miss-it" town and so had known OF each other all our lives. I never really thought much about him, and figured the feeling was mutual. However, one night while celebrating our high school's latest football victory-- which of course, he was one of the super-stars-- I learned the depth of his affections for me. The entire high school (so it seemed) was out a road party... yes, I said road party-- that would be a party, complete with bonfire, on a road... and just about the time I was leaving with my friends, waiting for them beside their car, Tony comes strolling up, full of his football greatness and ready to score again. He somewhat arrogantly leaned against the car, arms across his chest, looked me in the eye-- I think (it was dark)-- and blurted out:
"Hey. You know, you're hot."
PS. And... our first date was to McDonald's.
