It was my first week at college. And as I look back on it, I truly believe it was fate.
Being the unsocial loner I am, I was at the college cafeteria eating by myself. A girl came up and asked if she could sit with me. I said yeah and we started talking. She said she was going out that night and asked if I would like to join her. Since my social calendar was empty, I said sure!
The husband had been working all day. His friends came in and asked him to go out. He kept turning them down but they finally wore him down. He agreed and off he went.
We both ended up at the same place that fateful night. I sat at a table by myself (hard to imagine, I'm sure) drinking water and watching tv (ever the party animal!). The husband sat with a group of friends enjoying cold beverages. Right before the last song began to play, a waitress came over and asked if I would like to meet a friend of hers. I didn't see any harm in it so I said sure. Then I turned around and saw a table full of guys! Oh crap, what had I done! I walked over and was introduced to the husband. And thus it began.........
