It's hard to believe it, but 6 years ago today, a cute boy asked me to get a burrito with him after work. I didn't want to go, I was tired from working all day and I needed to get home and feed my cat. That cute boy convinced me to go anyway.
|The first ever photographic evidence of our relationship. Look how young we were!|
Back when I was younger, it turns out that I went on a lot of first dates, and I never knew that they were dates. Dates with boys I really liked, and thought that they were way out of my league. If we're being honest, it didn't even cross my mind that I was going on a date with him, because he was a cute boy, and it was just a burrito, you know? Also, his work uniform made him look like he was 12, so I was entirely unsure if he was even 21 yet.
Well, after finding out that not only was he over 21, that he was older than me, one major issue was overcome. And then I saw him in real clothes, and realized that the cute boy was a handsome man. And somehow, despite better judgement, he agreed to keep dating a clueless girl who never knew when she was being asked out.
And 6 years later, I'm still the clueless girl, and he's still the cute boy.
We've both changed in the last 6 years, maybe even more than our hair has changed. But the flutters I get over that cute boy that I get to date haven't changed one bit. I'm glad that he was my last-first date, even if I was entirely unaware of the circumstances.
And tonight, we'll go get a burrito, because that's just what we do.
