have i ever told you about my first date with jim? it was may of 2002 and i was a senior in my final semester of college. that day, i met one of my friends, ryan, at a coffee shop on campus to
study for finals drink far too much coffee and to gossip. one of the things we talked about was a little group date we were going on that night with ryan's boyfriend, a couple of my best girlfriends, and this cute guy i had a major crush on. that guy was, of course, jim. while we were in the coffee shop, babbling on and on and deciding what i should wear that night, my car got towed. apparently, i had parked in one of the spots for a bar next to the coffee shop and they towed my car away. my final project for my drawing class was due that day and it just so happened to be in the trunk of my car. my car that was now long gone. okay, so fast forward...my sister got me to the tow yard, i paid charged the $250 to get my car (and my art project) out, and i was on my way. not the best day for a poor college student, but i had that night to look forward to, so i was still pretty happy. fast forward even further into the night...my friends and i met jim at a bar on campus and were sharing a few pitchers of beer. things were going awesomely. jim and i were clearly hitting it off. all was well. i offered to drive him home that night in hopes that i would get a little goodnight kiss without all of my friends around. he agreed. fast forward again. the bar stopped serving drinks at 1 am but stayed open later for music and dancing. we were having a lot of fun, so we continued to hang out for another hour. finally, we decided to leave and started walking to the lot where i had parked my car. when we go to the lot i stopped and looked around in shock. the place was empty! i bet you can guess what had happened. my car had been towed. again! horrible, right? i was incredibly pissed. i was now going to be out another $250! but, even worse, i wasn't going to get my goodnight kiss! dang it! fast forward one more time...that night, jim and i ended up sharing our first cab (and perhaps our first kiss???) (a lady never tells.) and the rest is history.
