HOW I MET MY SPOUSE
Although they can be cheesy, I love the categorical blogging days, Friday Favorite or Funny Friday, Thankful Thursday, Tribute Tuesday, Wordless Wednesday. So here's to MEMORY MONDAY
This was the weekend Jay and I met. It must have been the first night Sarah got there. We had just looked up a friend (Cathrine) and were on our way to a basketball game when we realized we didn't have our tickets. Although it was only 4 blocks to our Apt it was freezing cold and we wanted a ride. So we stuck out our thumbs to hitch a ride. I don't remember if it was the first car to pass or not but when the green blazer slowed down we opened the door and jumped in before they could say anything. Once we were in the car we explained how the tickets were left at our pine view apt. They too were on their way to the game and offered to take us to our apt. On the way they introduced themselves as Pete and Jay, both claiming to be on the football team. I of course thought I knew most of the players and was like yeah, uh huh, water boys? Both of them were not sure what to make of being called that. I wish I could have recorded the conversation between Pete and Jay as they waited for us to get our tickets and return to the car. (I later found out that Pete had to talk Jay into me over Sarah, claiming he had seen me around campus before. AND of course not the first time I was second to Sarah, such a beautiful friend)
When we finally returned to the car and arrived at the HART for the game we gave a quick but gracious thank-you and went separate ways. After the game we went to Ami and Angi's to make plans. As we walked into the crowded apt. Pete (who was hot on the tails of Angi) became agitated we didn't recognize them from his good Samaritan deed of driving us to the game. I think we even said "should we know you?" Jay didn't say much, if anything and of course we were more interested in the "party"
The rest of the weekend was immortalized into the deans book as the group of 20+ who went to play cards and watch movies at a cabin in Island Park. (I still am wondering HOW the group that went all got together. Big Rick, little Rick, they were friends, but then Josh G and Chris from the Basket ball team? and then who invited Phil? Seriously!)
As far a Jay and I, a few days later, Jimmy called to hang out. I had just returned from the gym and said give me 15 minutes to shower. Thinking it was just the "boys" from his apt I did nothing to get ready. I got out of the shower and put sweats on and with wet hair went to hang out. Jay had asked Jimmy if we knew each other and set the whole thing up. I believe that was the night we shaved their legs and I got my first glimpse at the "pals" tattoo.
