Love Story :: Part One

He and She Meet

August 9, 2010 – I was basically wearing Pajamas

Our mutual friend, Dena, introduced us  while Scott was on vacation. She kept talking about how her friend was coming to visit and she said “you’re gonna love him”. I thought cool, ’cause seriously if you know me you know I love everybody.

The morning we met Dena called and asked I if I wanted to come over for breakfast tacos. I said I would be there in 10 minutes. What Dena didn’t know, was I had been asleep when she called, so I got up fluffed my hair, brushed my teeth, and put on some appropriate outside clothes and walked to her house.

{I had no idea I was about to meet the man of my dreams, because I would have taken a shower and probably put on some cuter clothes, at least I brushed my teeth.}

Neighbors

Dena and I had been friends for about a year. She is a single mom, and we hung out a lot. I had moved recently and ended up about a block from her house. We ate at least one meal a day together…so much better to eat with someone than alone, don’tcha think? Anyway it was normal for me to roll out of bed and head over to Dena’s for breakfast, coffee or a game of Wii bowling with her son.

A few minutes later I walked into her house, Dena was on the phone, I  didn’t see Scott anywhere and so I made myself at home and sat on the couch. Scott came down the hall, introduced himself and sat down next to me.

Dena started cooking breakfast and asked me about how much bacon she should cook. I told her to cook it all. I ain’t afraid of no bacon. Plus if there happens to be any leftovers she can always make a BLT. We ate breakfast sitting on the living room floor and ended up talking about Time for Timer. For the life of me I didn’t remember what it was, but I can still sing the Conjunction Junction song, so that made up for it. Since Dena cooked, Scott and I cleaned up the kitchen together. I didn’t think about it then, but we definitely got along great from the start.

We made plans to have dinner that evening. Dena and Scott headed to the store and I was off to get ready to go to work.

The three of us hung out, ate dinner, drank wine, and talked about the upcoming week. Dena was working the morning shift and I worked in the afternoon, so we planned that I would take Scott around town while she was working. That was the easy part, no awkward ask for a number. Our friend went to bed saying stay up, hang out, I’ll see you tomorrow. Scott and I sat on the porch, having finished the wine we moved onto whiskey which flowed as easily as the conversation.

Dena and I had just finished two summer school classes, that meant I was completely done with college! We had worked on two projects both having to do with mobile media and storytelling. One was a historic walking tour, the other was a location-based story that used gps coordinates and geocaching to find the next part of the story. This is what Scott and I planned to do the next day.

It was getting late and I said I was going to head home. Scott insisted on walking with me. I tried to convince him to let me walk alone and even pointed to my house, but he said that’s how we do it where I come from.

…and then he asked if he could kiss me.
