Staff Meeting #2 - Writing

1990 - "Re met" my future wife Debbie
From Dogs - Friends

Love is fickle.... some times you need your heart ripped from your chest while the former love of your life shows you your beating heart while she smiles.   Oh... that smile....  how something so sweet could be so deadly all at same time.     Yet in that moment unbeknownst to me it is when my heart was ready for love.     It was at one of those college movies they show....where you squash into uncomfortable lecture sets to have something to do on a Friday night.    I had reluctantly agreed to accompany some friends to the showing of "A Time to Kill"  it was more to help a buddy scam on a girl then anything else.   My heart was still tender from the ripping it took... especially when my former girlfriend who had said it was her not me and she needed time had started to date another guy I knew.   As we sat chomping on stale popcorn we meandered through a variety of inane topics until finally I saw her.    I know it might be cliche but I honestly believe all sound stopped.... silence.... nada nothing.   Debbie... was there... I had know her from 8th grade on and we were obnoxious acquaintance, I was obnoxious and she knew me.   We were those school friends where you are in class together and friendly but would never call each other friends.    She had walked in with a few of her friends and thankfully I saw her.   She had dated a kid I knew from my home town and they had broken up and he had told me some convoluted story which didn't ring true.   I had tried to find her knowing her dorm but not the room number... but with no names on doors it was a desperate act of futility. Yet her she was in all her glory.... tan pants with a white button up shirts with her gorgeous hair....  I swear there was a spot light on her.   I was able to muster up the courage to do some small talk trying to figure out with what happened but alas life goes on and the dam movie started.   In the dark I stared in her direction ignoring the movie going on.  And then loves fickle arrow took a shot.   The movie messed up.... crunch..... snap..... nothing.     Darkness.... and in that blackness she stood up to go.   "She you" I said in the dark... she later told me she knew I was going to come see her when I said that.    As they shuffled out I made sure my friends were ok and sprinted to her room to see her.   So from one week going from "if you love something snap its neck" to holy crap she is AWESOME... love is fickle.....   and to beat it all at a dance with her the old flame tried to rekindle.    But I said no I'm good my heart is in the right location now.... good luck with that.    And the rest is history..... never did get to see the movie but the outtakes were awesome.
