This is me. Right this very second. Well, technically, 90 seconds ago.
You like my headphones? They are so cozy on my ears. And since it’s 12:52 a.m. and mi familia is all asleep, I have to wear the headphones. Want to know what I’m listening too? Kolacny Brothers & Scala. Yeah, I’d never heard of them before tonight either. I’m loving “With or Without You” and “Somebody”. You should definitely check them out if you like pretty choir-ish music that moves your soul.
That picture was taken about a month after we met. I had the biggest crush ever on him, and a few weeks after that picture was taken, we went out on our first date.
When we were in Arlington last weekend, I found the mother load of Derek and Megan Memories. I found my box with all the letters he’s ever written me (we had a long distance relationship for 3 years), cards, pictures, random rocks, his old high school id, old flowers, and quite possibly my favorite find of all:
Oh yes, blog friends. That is the actual journal entry that 15 year old Meg wrote after going on her very first date with the man she would eventually marry.
So there you have it. I’m telling you, I’ve had the best time reading all the old letters. I’m so glad I saved them all. I read them out loud to Derek on the drive home last weekend, and we were cracking up. We were such dorks! And some of them are just so tortured…oh, the drama of high school love!
A few observations:
1. Nice neon t-shirt, D. I think just about ever shirt Derek wore in ’95 was some sort of soccer shirt.
2. My Mr. Potato Head shirt. I’m not even kidding when I say that was my favorite shirt in 1995.
3. I am wearing one of Derek’s hats. Flirting 101-wear your crush’s hat.
4. Derek has and always will have difficulty keeping his eyes open in a picture.
It’s 1:23 a.m. I’m going to be hurting tomorrow. Night!
