The kicker is I have always wondered what happened to my high school guy. He was brilliant – I always fell for the smart ones – but not very focused. He was more worried about making it to the midnight showing of Rockey Horror than which college to attend. He was a hopeless romantic though.
Tonight, I was helping a friend with a computer problem and while I was bored, waiting for her to get back with me, I typed in HIS name in Google images. I won’t post the image here because, well, that’s just weird, but I found out that the guy I could have married is now a PROFESSIONAL AIR HOCKEY PLAYER!!!!! He has long hair and hangs out in bars – he’s 33 freaking years old!!!!!
I always knew I made the right decision by saying no to him and sticking it out with the Major, but this shows that I deserve a pat on the back. I actually sent my father an e-mail thanking him for all his patience over the 4 years I dated this guy; after I saw his current credentials. So, thanks dad, for believing that I could do better and for encouragement me to go out and look…..
