29 years

Sue and I went on our first date 29 years ago today.

I worked for a 1/2 day at a house that I was framing in Cherry Hills. 

I borrowed my father's Oldsmobile so I Sue wouldn't have to ride in my truck on our first date.

She greeted me at the door of  her apartment.  She was wearing a pretty white dress. 

We had tickets to the theatre to see A Chorus Line.

We drove over to Simms Landing and had a late dinner.  We sat in our little booth and talked for a long time, the things you do on first dates.

We drove back to her apartment.  I sat nervously on the couch with her.  It had been such a long time since I had been on a date with someone that I liked, someone I was attracted to and wanted to be with.

It probably took me half an hour or longer for me to finally ask her if I could kiss her. I was so nervous.

And she said yes and we kissed and we kissed and it was another world waiting for me there.

I wonder if she will say yes tonight?
