So I'm trying something new - "Memory Monday" will be a step back in time. A story from old. Maybe about Ex. Maybe not. For now, I'll start with:
HE HAD ME WHEN....I met him at a college conference. I watched him for most of the 4 days, then finally asked him to dance. After a long night of talking - and a few kisses (really that was all, and it took hours to get that much out of me) - we parted ways to go back home. I thought of him but didn't expect to hear from him any time soon. But within days a cute card with a puppy dog shows up with sentiments of how much he missed me already. A guy. Sending a Card. With a puppy dog. Admitting he missed me. I was a goner.
I SHOULD'VE KNOWN IT WAS DOOMED WHEN...during the early years we worked in the same town. I thought it would be cute to meet him for lunch. So we met for a quickie (LUNCH you silly) at wendy's. He did not say Two. Civil. Words. during the entire lunch. He was crabby and sullen. I tried to get him to cheer up or at least be human. He said he couldn't break away in the middle of the day and be social - this was not his idea and he only went along with it to shut me up. The man was a financial anlyst, not a surgeon or a rocket scientist. He took a lunch break every day. Give. Me. A Break. We were newlyweds! We had lived apart during our entire 2 year "courtship!" Finally we were in the same zip code and he didn't have time for me! This was not the man I had dated! I laughed it off, and said I'd never meet him again for lunch. And I didn't!
