Most of you know how Tom and I got together over thirty years ago, but I never posted about the first time I laid my eyes on him. That happened about thirty one years ago.
My girlfriend, Juliana and I were going to the fruit and vegetable store for my mom. The store was crowded this fine Saturday morning. We were looking at the fruit and just giggling like girls do. I was only fifteen at the time. Suddenly, I heard a voice say, “Excuse me, excuse me.” I turned, looked, and seen the finest specimen of man I’ve ever laid my eyes on. He had blond, wavy hair, beautiful, soft eyes, and nice fitting jeans. He was carrying a very large sack of something on one shoulder and it seemed effortless to him. I checked him out completely and was very pleased at what I saw.
After he passed by, I looked at my girlfriend and we both smiled. (I should interject here that we had a habit of ranking guys on a scale of one to ten. We would just look at each other and say a number.) All I could say at this point was, “Fifty.” That meant he was way off the charts. She concurred. I said, “Wow, he looks good coming and going.” This day sparked a series of flirtatious events and the rest they say is history.
So that was my “first sparks” story, what was yours?
