Where it all began

Okay fine this is not really the beginning but this is where I first learned of it. So let me see if I can fill in the blanks. I have hinted off and on that there is a bit of a story behind how The Man and I came to the place we are now but I have not filled in the gaps as of yet. I guess I hesitate because it is a long one and there are parts of the truth that I might not really like to share but if I am honest about the whole thing I wouldn't have it any other way. Here we go.

20 years ago a young girl skated up to me at the local roller rink to inform me that her brother said he was going to marry me one day. Let's see if I can conger up the conversation exactly so as to get a clear picture of what this might have looked like.

To start off let's set the atmosphere a bit. Just listen to this while you read on and maybe you will get a better sense of the scene going down at Wheelies.

Me in some form of overalls, an over sized neon colored shirt or maybe if we're lucky we can pretend it is a hand made dress. But chances are we're not that lucky. Think 1993 home schooled and you might just see me. Big, clunky roller skates in a darkish roller rink surrounded by all the people I knew from church with some really good music rockin' it out.  And the ever present disco ball that sparkled and flashed lights all around the rink. The heavy weight of those skates keeping my young feet tethered to the ground as I glide round and round. Never thinking that my life would forever change in a moment.

K, so that's me, then this little girl, maybe eight, super cute. Actually she's an easy one to conjure up, just imagine my Suzie-Kim a few years older then put her in the same era of clothing and you've got it. She's cute and blond and doesn't know what kind of confused she is about to create.

Cute eight year old "My brother says he's going to marry you one day"

1993 Home school me..........Blank stare.

That's it.
