Today marks 2 years dating Jill.
Jill and I met in the summer of ’98 at a catholic retreat (CLI). I remember specifically her wearing a bandana and being ‘really cool.’ I made sure that I got her e-mail, which was about as bold as I could be at 17. I think it’s safe to say that I had a big crush on her from the get go. We e-mailed just about every day for the following 4 years, with the occasional hiatus.
Finally, after four years of e-mailing we went to Davis’s mega corn maze just outside worcester. Kudos to me for that idea. What’s better for a date idea than to get purposefully lost. heh heh. I’m so clever. She didn’t consider it a ‘date’ but Lord knows I did. I even called my sisters for fashion advice.
Here’s a shout out to ‘e-mail’ which helped incubate our relationship for 4 years following our first meeting.
