|10th Anniversary flower...Daffodil...|
To start off, when I lived in San Franciso in the mid to late ninties, so did he. We actually lived a couple of blocks away from each other. He thinks maybe he came into where I worked on Fillmore and maybe he did. Either way, it was not meant for us to meet then. Both he and I were different people then and it was not the time for us to meet, nevermind the fact that he was in a relationship with a long term girlfriend.
Flew to Vegas a few days later and went to the awards show (unfortunately my friend did not win, I think Skechers did?). Asking the taxi driver where would be a good place to go out, he suggested three spots, and we decided on the Hard Rock. Well, Skechers has a huge party twice a year, and without an invite you have to pay to get in. Me, being the miser that I was at the time thought the price they were asking for was outrageous. He talked them down, and we went in. After about 20 minutes, I was over the scene. All the guys had on VERY TIGHT shirts, and the women were dressed rather tacky. It was definitely not my vibe. I was BEYOND ready to go... Then I got this feeling. Hard to describe other than a feeling I had inside my bones. I turned around, and there he was (minus his date that cancelled on him...her loss!). I said to myself...OH MY, and headed directly to the ladies' room to freshen up. Of course, I left my bag with my friends so no freshening up for me!!!! I told myself to just go for it, and I headed back to the stage area. Once I got closer I leaned over and said hello (even though Josh said he was the first to speak). We hung out for six hours, and said goodbye after we exchanged info.
|Color? Silver of course...!|
How did we celebrate? We tried out a Thai place on Central (The Orchid...which was divine!), went to a movie (Beasts of the Southern Wild...which was also divine-poetry to film!), and ran late night errands. All in all, it was a wonderful evening!
Til next time,
