Since I'm new to this realm of blogging I thought it would be neat to participate in the Valentine Blog carnival going on over at We Are THAT Family. Check it out for more neat stories.
I'm not the best writer, I'm more of an in person story teller. I apologize in advance.
It started the day I broke up with a boyfriend, we weren't very serious so it was a big deal. It still hurts though. I worked at Wal-Mart as a cashier and my cousin came through my line buying some things (to make cheese dip) for a get together. He asked if I was getting off soon and told me I should stop by. I wasn't really feeling up to it but I figure having a little fun would be great right about then.
I got off about half an hour later and headed over to his house. As I was walking in the door I passed by this tall boy with bright blue eyes. He was dreamy, but I had just gotten out of a relationship and wasn't looking for anyone. I went inside and said hello to everyone. An old friend that I hadn't seen since I was 12 or 13 was there. We were catching up and in walked Mr. Dreamy. I honestly think I checked out a bit looking at him. Debbie looked at me and said "Oh, have you met my brother?" She introduced me to Jason and we couldn't take our eyes off of each other. I couldn't believe I never knew she had a brother, let alone that he was Mr. Dreamy.
The night went on and it came up that Jason had something happen and couldn't get to the store to get the cheese dip. Hmmm... you mean this wasn't supposed to happen. Could it have been fate? As the night went on everyone ate and Chris and Jason decided to take a ride around town. They asked me to go and I hopped in right beside Mr. Dreamy. He took a few turns harder than he should have and I kept leaning over into him. Thank goodness for a truck with a bench seat.
Then it happened, he said a cuss word. My arm went up and I smacked him (not hard at all!) right across his cheek. I couldn't believe it I had just hit Mr. Dreamy!!! What did I do? I apologized and said that kind of language was unacceptable to me. It turns out he likes a woman that stands up for what she believes in! He never said another cuss word pass that day.
We lived happily ever after... and he admitted to taking those turns too hard on purpose.
The funny thing is we found out later that we knew many of the same people yet somehow never met. He was my cousins best friend, how in the world we never met till that night we will never know. We believe it was meant to be.
