He had been doing these god-awful King Kong impressions a little too loudly for his buddies in the back of the room and got himself moved to the front, beside me, because I apparently was quiet and responsible. We spent hours on the phone with one another every night and into the early morning.
At the end of the hunt D was down on one knee with the most beautiful diamond ring in his hand.There are many more, let's just say, complicated, parts to our story right about here..to shorten it a little, D finally got up the nerve to ask me to be his girlfriend at 4pm on January 19, 2001 over the wonderful technology known as AIM. Proms, Military Balls (D was in JROTC all through high school), countless dates, and college. We've never lived more than 5 minutes apart throughout our entire relationship, so why should college be any different?We attended the same university, lived in the same dorm Freshman year (co-ed dorm, on different floors), and moved to the same apartment complex with our respective roommates for Sophomore and Junior year.Our story begins many years before...about 7 years earlier to be exact.We met in 1997 when we were both silly elementary school kids in Mrs. We instantly became good buddies and "hung out" with the same group of friends. Come to find out (MANY years later), D had been going through some issues with his current circle of friends..stemming from a horrible ex-girlfriend.
