I'm sure of it. Oh, the anticipation!
I'm riding my bike in the summer rain, talking to my man on my cell phone. The ever-popular-during-long-distance-relationships earpiece is my favorite thing. EVER.
"Whatcha doin'?" A question I ask expecting detail. I want it to be like I was right there with him.
"Helping mom look at apartments and houses to rent..."
"Cool. That sounds like fun. Ya findin' anything?"
"Yeah...I'm going to sign a year lease to live with her."
"Oh." He's doing WHAT!?
Now he's going on about prices and other such details. But, I can't remember a thing he says. I'm stuck on "Year Lease."
"What about candidate school?" I ask. "You're going to be traveling a lot, too. Right?"
I'm so confused.
"Cool." And I feel like a dork, because all I can say is "cool."
"Well, I'd better go. I need to pay attention to where I'm giong."
STUPID excuse, since I always talked to him while riding my bike. No-handed even.
He doesn't catch on.
"Ok, babe. Love ya."
And I'm officially sad, mad...feeling sick.
We hang up.
I call Gina.
I cry to her. "He's going to live with his mom for a year! That means...that means...he's not even thinking about getting married! A whole year with his mom!"
This is the day...rainy day on my bike. Note the shiny object on the right (your left)side of my head. That'd be the hands-free phone thingy.
And two more pictures from back in the day...seeing a common "cord" between the two? Yes, I would be talking to Jim on that same hands-free thingy in both pictures. Yay for Free Verizon to Verizon during times of separation! Oh, and sorry 'bout the blur in that one. I'm cleaning my bathroom before I move. It's probably a good thing it's blurry.
