This will get gushy. This will, so look away. I am crazy about this guy. When I say crazy I mean I still get giddy and butterflies when I know he is coming through the door. I know, have you looked away yet are you dry heaving. No?
I realized something today. I meet this man ....well he was a boy at the time. When I was 17. Yes sir that be 17 years young. Our fist encounter went like this.
Me walking with my best friend at DTS *Discipleship Training School* Youth with a Mission in Colorado 1996. Seeing a tall boy who had a brown striped sweater, green cords slacks, a hacky sack and a black back pack with a plush Winnie the Pooh tied to his pack with a cross necklace hanging from Poohs neck. Um, yes, I probably remember what you wore when I first meet you too, Its a gift.
Boy: "Hey do you want to hear something awesome!"
Me: "Always, but what's your name?"
Boy: "you can call me Teabo."
Me: "What...... Teabo, what kinda name is that...sounds like a rappers name. Your one of those white boys that want to be a rapper huh!"
Boy" What...no thats my last name, and this Pooh Bear just got saved!'
Me: :"Wow, does this line work for you!"
I walk away knowing he was watching me walk away. Kinda thought I was something sassy back then I suppose!
I walked into the Lodge of that Colorado Lodge and looked at Lynda and said " I like that one, we are going to be good friends!"
I am going to have to finish this story another day.
But 17 years later on this birthday. I am still giddy for him. I have known this man for half my life. I love him. I treasure him...and that last name of his. And I believe the line did work!
Happy Birthday Best friend!
An inexpensive gift idea and a fun recipe!
