Well today I was driving to school and I saw him again! This time I knew my eyes weren't deceiving me. I yelled at him, and he yelled back, but he was crossing the street and I was in my car so the conversation didn't go much further.
But alas, I walked out of my first class and lo and behold there he was again. Mind you, this is a school of 30,000 students. This time I got to talk to him briefly, yet long enough to exchange numbers.
So here's the kicker, I got in my car to leave for the day 3 hours later and guess who I see walkin' down the street. Yep.
So who is the character, you ask? My first boyfriend from 7th grade.
Why am I telling this story? First of all, I mean, what are the chances really? Last time I checked he was in Lubbock and I was in Utah.
Second of all, while I was laughing about the comedy of events, and recollecting the foibles of pubescent romance, I had the horrific realization that 7th grade was ten years ago. TEN! 1-0. How is this possible?
Growing up is the weirdest thing ever.
