He was coming out of the college library, just as I was approaching to meet with a study group.
Heck, who cares if I was a few minutes late. I followed him with my eyes, turned around and came back from where I came from…cut through one of the campus buildings to come out of the other side to “accidentally” run into him.
He walked me to my evening class claiming to have a meeting with his professor. I found him, an hour and a half later, sleeping on a bench outside of my class. 🙂
He asked for help with his Finance homework, knowing full well he was much smarter at it than I was. LOL
He’ll claim to not remember any of this stuff…but I do.
Summer of 1999…I finally decided to start enjoying college life a little and fell in love with my best friend to the tunes of “Send Me Your Love” by Born Jamericans and “I Do…Cherish You” by 98 Degrees. He dedicated that song to me on TRL – back when MTV still played music videos. (Yes this IS our song!) He’ll claim not to remember that either….but I cut class just to see his dedication scroll across the screen. Yeah – we didn’t have DVR back then either. LOL
Who needs candles and roses when you’ve got someone to carry your books and dedicate songs to you on TRL. LOL I’ll take that any day, every day. 🙂
It’s been 13 years today and I still remember that summer like yesterday. The years have had more great than bad. I’m happy to say that we still laugh and smile every time we’re together. And there’s no one else I’d rather share and build my world with.
