No Fairy Tale Beginning Here Tue, Feb 04, 2020
I wish I had some nice love story to tell you all about how Andrew and I met but I don’t. I don’t have a “love at first sight” story or a “blind date success” story. You see, I went to middle school with Andrew and then high school with him. But funny thing is, I never said one word to him in all those 7 years. I never asked him if I could borrow his pencil, never accidentally bumped into him in the hallway, never got assigned as his partner, never a hi or bye…nothing. I simply knew of him and he of me.
Then, one weekend during my college freshman year, I got invited to a friend’s B-Day party in Hollywood. That was the first night we said our first words to each other.
Andrew: Are they always like this when they get together?
Me: Yeah, pretty much.
(We were talking about my sister and his college roommate who dated in high school and always seemed to tune out the rest of the world every time they saw each other.)
Anyways, that was pretty much it. That was our first encounter and, if I recall correctly, the only words we said to each other that night. Great story, right? Not really. But some love stories don’t come with a red bow on top, some start off kind of dull. But it’s our story so I wouldn’t change anything. 😊
Hope you all have a great Valentine’s Day next week!
