Today, I am heading to Texas for business.
I will be in the Longview area, so if you’re a Texas native feel free to fire me over an e-mail. We’ll grab some dinner. I will be there until Friday, and I will do my best to eat as much steak as possible. I will likely have some internet access and I’ve already AUTO-POSTED this week’s Feature section.
Jesse is engaged to Holy Cross Alicia.
Here’s the story:
It was the summer of 2001. As a leading dude at WPI’s Newman club, I was invited by Father Scanlon to attend a silent retreat in Naragansett, RI. A silent retreat is a retreat where no one is allowed to talk. It’s a time when you can think and be pensive and reflect on your life. I was the only non-Holy Cross student to attend. Upon arriving, the first two people I met were Holy Cross Alicia and Holy Cross Theresa. This was especially odd to me because my dear sisters are named Alicia and Theresa.
The week went well and despite not being able to speak, I felt by the end that I had friends in the Holy Cross folk. After the event H.C. Alicia and H.C. Theresa made frequent appearances at our WPI appartment.
The following spring I went away to Denmark. When I returned, Jesse and H.C. Alicia were coupled.
Last weekend Jesse went up to Maine where H.C. Alicia just started medical school. On the way to a restaurant, H.C. Alicia’s car broke down. A tow truck was called. In the cab H.C. Alicia commented that she was having a good time because although the car had broken down she was able to spend time with her
fat loving boyfriend (awwwww).
A short while later, H.C. Alicia turned to Jesse and asked “you want to get married?” Jesse said “yeah, I do.”
Jesse has asked me to post this story to provide proof to the generations to come that Jesse did not force H.C. Alicia to marry him. That it was her idea and that he is not responsible for the mayhem that will likely follow their union.
Congratulations Jesse & H.C. Alicia. I wish you many years of Rockstar lifestyles.
