Running a little behind

date: April 21st, 2006 (Friday)
Time: 7:30 pm
Place: Lupe Tortilla's (if you don't live where there is one - you are missing out bad)

Sitting outside Lupe's waiting to see Mark for the first time (online dating), I saw him walk up gingerly. Only 9 days before he had his appendix removed so was still tender.

He heard me call his name, turned around and smiled. He walked up and we hugged. We had talked on the phone, emailed, text-ed for a few weeks.

And there he was. So cute. and just the right height.

I've already wrote about ordering queso (he ordered a small - hahahah - and then ordered a second - love at SECOND bowl of queso).

After 2 hours in the restaurant, eating, talking, laughing, we went to a local bar. Ended up sitting in his car for an hour talking (really - just talking) and finally went in for a drink.

I ended up on my way home about 1:30 in the morning. Just knowing it was different. Hoping I had found "the one".

The next day he drove out to see me and we went to dinner and had a great time - talking, laughing.

About 2 1/2 months later, while sitting watching tv he told me he loved me. I had felt it for a while. He told me he had too.

And now, one year later - we went to where it started. Lupe Tortilla's. Had the same meal - fajitas for two.

But one large bowl of queso.

Mark - I love you babe.
