I got a call from the past

I gotta tell ya.. Have been a lil stressed out lately.. Its true.. the muff ain't all that tuff..

Anyways.. a phone call from a friend that I have not spoke to in 15 years just made my day

He was a guy I knew in little Rock Arkansas.. we went to school together.. He was one of those guys that was so charming.. so nice.. so handsome that when he asked me out for a date.. I was just soooo shocked.. Of course I said yes.. like before he could even finish the sentence

I had a week to plan.. this was one of those dates you get the nails done..Buy a new dress.. the hair.. but don't shave the legs.. keeps you a good girl if you don't shave your leg's on the first date
I tripled cleaned my apartment.. the entire ball of wax.. can we say I was a lil excited..My dream date to come true..

The plan was he was going to pick me up at 6pm for dinner then a boat ride on the lake..
I had decided a couple of hours before his arrival time ..to mop the floor.. one more time before I headed into a hot shower..as I was in the shower.. the phone rang .. this was before i had an answering machine so I just knew it was him to cancel the date.. so I jumped out of the shower and went running in the kitchen to get the phone ..thats when I slipped on the wet floor and my foot slid under the bottom of the fridge.. my foot broke and swelled immediately and hurt so badly.. could not get my foot from under the fridge..
naked.. wet.. hair conditioner in my hair and I'm my foot is stuck under the fridge....can you get the visual ??

and the door knocks...its my date that arrives early..

I had no choice but to holler at him to come in..the door was locked he would need to climb through a window.. plus I told him he must keep his eyes closed..lol
he yelled.. what.. and why ?? I replied .. you will see.. no wait.. keep your eyes closed..!!

the poor young man was baffled.. but did as I asked.. he could hear the stress in my voice..such a great guy.. so I hope you can visualize this poor guy climbing through a window with him trying to keep his eyes closed.. but he cheated and peeked..said.. " omg what happened.." He automatically went to my couch and covered me with a blanket.. took one look at the situation and called an ambulance.. no 911 back then

I was so embarrassed.. but he made me laugh during all this.. told me he was going to tell everyone he saw me naked on the first date.. how he swept me off my foot..lol.. how he made me wet..lol
it took an hour for the ambulance and fire department to get to my apartment..one of the best hours ever they had to destroy the fridge to get my swollen, broken foot out.. My date stayed with me as I got a cast and we shared hospital Jello.. strawberry.. mmmm
one of the best nights of my life..I got out of the hospital at 1 am.. we went to waffle house and talked till 6am.. he carried me to and from the car..lol took me home.. made sure I had all I needed ..tucked me in and fell asleep on the couch after he told me he was going to tell everyone he got lucky..

It amazed me that he called me.. to let me know he was thinking of that night.. we did go out more..and more funny story's.. we did not connect because he was in love with his High school sweetheart that he is now married too ..We never had sex.. just a great time..until he got excepted at another university.

But he made me laugh today and feel so good that I'm still remembered.. and he brought the young woman back to life..it put the dance back in my step..
and the fact that he took the time to contacted me when he found out where I was from a mutual friend to share one of his favorite memory's .. and it was me.. made me feel so wonderful.this was 24 yrs ago.. feels like yesterday now

anyways.. who do you need to give a call and say.. thanks for the wonderful memory? and maybe make there day.. night.. life..

Hey, I know that picture!
I ran into someone from HS not too long ago. She told me how she would always remember me and how I helped her in Math class. Our last names begin with the same letter so we ended up with desks near each other quite often. She said she never understood what the teacher had put up on the board. Told me I used to turn around and draw it out for her. The pictures did it for her and she got through the class. I didn't remember this.
What I did remember is having a major crush on her. Four of us used to go roller skating every Friday night in sixth grade. My Friend and his girlfriend, me and my crush. Nothing ever came of it. I was clueless. Took me 'til eighth grade to have a girlfriend and that lasted 2 weeks. Got the breakup note the morning we were supposed to go to our first party. Crappy.
Then nothing until after HS. Now this girl ran into my wife and daughter recently. She talked about us going out like it was this big thing. I didn't think it was "all that" and she would have a fond memory of it since we didn't really do anything in the time we did go out. Strange.

wonderful memories come in different sizes and shapes.. what may not be anything special to one.. the other may cherish for life..after all she did not forget you

I went on holiday with a freind once to fill the shoes of her boyfriend who had dumped her five days previously. Little did I know she actualy fancied me and was planning on starting something on holiday. We kind of had a food fight and generally got on well. One evening however she slipped in the shower an injured herself and I had to have the pleasurable job of getting her dry and dressed and to hospital. Needless to say nothing happened on that holiday, and when talking to one of her friends later I found out that she was just too embarrassed to ask me after all that had happened. Now if I could talk to her now, that would be very interesting.

MAYBE YOU SHOULD TRY AND CALL wonderful memories

You are most assuredly one of the brighter stars in the heavens tonight, twinkling at us all with your humor and warm feelings. Alas, I don't know how to find anyone from my past, so I shall merely live vicariously through yours . . .. .but I SHALL stay away from refrigerators if the phone rings . . . . . ..


SacredStarDance replies on 8/10/2006 3:10 am:
