Amy @ in my life was tagged to tell her very sweet story last week...and being the great bloggy friend that she is, she tagged me to tell my story.
I don't know what category this story falls into...maybe you can help me with that.
Hubs and I first met in the sixth grade. We were in the Spelling Bee together. I
When we got into Junior High, we had a few classes together, but no real conversations to speak of. I did my thing. He did his. Whatever those things were. ???
When were Freshman, we became 'best friends' as sort of a joke. He had witnessed a girl friend of mine pass a note to another girl asking her to be her best friend. He thought this was so '3rd grade' that it became a joke. He then passed me a note to ask me to be his best friend. It was hilarious to me, so we became best friends. We'd exchange a big hug each time we saw each other, but we really didn't speak outside of school. Then, he 'dated' my best friend for about two weeks. There were really no dates, just phone calls and seeing each other at school. All the while, he was my best friend...
He soon broke it off with my friend. When she asked him why, the only answer he would give was that he was interested in someone else. The only hint he would give about this someone else was that she was an Aquarius.
I'm an Aquarius. (not that I give a hill of beans about astrology, but that's what I am)
So I began to ponder...'Could I be the one he's interested in? Do I like him as more than a friend? Could I date him?'
I began to imagine being his girlfriend.
I wondered how my friend would feel if he had dumped her for me.
And then I found out.
It wasn't me.
It was the chick he had dumped before he dated my friend. Ugh.
Ok, so now I had budding feelings that I had to put away. And I did. He began dating his ex again. And we continued to just be best friends.
Then in 10th grade, we both earned, or won, tickets to a local hockey game. My dad required me to take my older brother. But we went with Donald...and his girlfriend! She drove...she was my brother's age. (I know, he was dating an older woman!!)
So we went to this hockey game. Donald and I cracked jokes and goofed off all night...because we were best friends! My brother sat there doing whatever. The girlfriend sat there pouting with her arms folded. The team scored during some special time window in the game and we were given coupons to Burger King. After the game, we went to BK to cash in on our free whatever. Donald and I, being the mature ones (we were 15/16), hit the outdoor playground...so fun, right ? The girlfriend and my brother hung out by the fence, party poopers.
That night was a turning point...for one of us...
Tune in tomorrow for the 'rest of the story'...
