I interviewed him at his fashion show on the red carpet. We literally have our first words on camera. We were totally flirting, it was awesome to watch back a year later.
My best friend in high school was on the girls’ basketball team. After practice one day, she invited me to lunch with the team and that’s when I got a major crush on the point guard! The freckles on her cheeks tugged at my heartstrings and I had to get to know her. In the car on the way to the restaurant, she was talking to everyone but me. Anxious to get her attention, I finally blurted out, “Why is your chest shimmering?” She turned bright red and the car went silent until she responded “Ugh, my sister used all my lotion, so I had to try her body shimmer crap.” That was 7 years ago, and I can still make her blush.
I met my boyfriend on Halloween while I was walking down the street with a bunch of friends. I heard someone yelling the name of my costume and when I turned around, I saw him driving. He stopped the car and caused a huge traffic jam just to take my phone number. A month later I moved into his apartment. We’ve now been together for six years.
I never imagined that serving coffee was how I’d find true love. We were both working at different Starbucks when I first met him. I was grabbing coffee with friends at his store and introduced myself. Sparks were definitely flying but the relationship didn’t unfold until a couple months later when I was transferred to work at his Starbucks location. Coffee is the way to many people’s hearts, and I definitely took a double shot.
We worked at the same company. She was in the key punch department (they don’t have those anymore) and I was in the blueprint department, so our paths would cross. I took her out to lunch at the cafeteria, and wouldn’t you know it, I didn’t have any money on me so she had to pay! The rest is history. I’ve been paying ever since, gladly. We’ve been married for over 58 years.
