Wow…where do I even begin?
Well, I arrived in Halifax to see Sunshine (formerly known as K…who I am now just going to refer to as “Sunshine”, since that’s her online handle…not to mention she’s my light in the darkness and all that mushy blah blah blah stuff…) on Friday afternoon. She called me mid-journey on my cell and had been tweeting up a storm announcing my impending arrival.
So just as I was about 10 minutes away, she called my cell again. Instead of “Hello”, I answered in the only way I know how: being a smart-ass: “Why am I not there yet??” I could hear the excitement in her voice. We were literally bouncing off of each other and I wasn’t even there yet. I drove into the parking lot and quickly got out of the car with my suitcase in hand.
Then I saw her.
To say that the chemistry was there from the very beginning would be an understatement. To say that I immediately fell for her all over again would be an understatement. I dropped everything and gave her a hug to end all hugs. This was a hug that, hopefully, would say everything I wanted to say before I actually had the chance to say it.
I was in love all over again.
The term “two peas in a pod” doesn’t even adequately describe what we’re like when we’re together. We actually joke around that people will end up hating us because we’re sooooo annoyingly loving and giddy and just plain silly when we’re together. We’re two thirty-somethings who act like teenagers when we’re together. And we’re totally unashamed of that.
Without going into great detail, let me just say that our initial meeting was one of the most incredible experiences I can remember having. The first time seeing her. The hug. The words that we said to each other. I guess I’ll leave it at that…
So after awhile we decided to go out to get some groceries. As we drove around downtown and we smiled…we laughed…we mugged for each other’s camera…we thoroughly enjoyed each other’s company.
It was how it should be.
After having way too much fun in the grocery store (including having discussions on the incredible existence of these things called fiddleheads), we made our way back to her place for some nachos and a movie.
It’s safe to say that although we had a lot to talk about (and we had done a lot of talking already in the day), it felt like those three months had been erased. We felt like we just stopped seeing eachother last week. It was an unique feeling…this incredible comfort zone that we share.
We decided on watching “Yes Man“…the latest Jim Carrey movie. Sunshine made the nachos and…well…I love cheese as much as the next guy, but WHAT THE HELL?
So that pretty much finished up Friday night. Well…at least it finished up all that you’re gonna hear about. Heh.
