Doodly Doodly do.... Spring 2007...
I was a cute, young intern at an Accounting Firm in Lubbock, Texas, working long hours, travelling all over Texas, New Mexico & Arizona... CityBoy was a Junior Associate in the Audit Department, working long hours, travelling all over...
I can't really recall our first meeting, but CityBoy remembers it perfectly. On the second week of my internship, we all went out to lunch, and apparently I talked about my roommate's illegal pet being caught in our apartment and us being fined, but that's beyond the point. MY first memory of CityBoy was in the Bullpen when he was introduced to me as "the guy that plays crazy music in the afternoons to lighten everybody up." His favorite -- "Its Raining Men."
My internship was a quick blur. Every week I was in a new town (nowhere exciting...unless you think Willcox, Arizona and Bandera, Texas are exciting), and in every now town, me and the other members of my audit team found a new bar. Over the course of my internship, I became fast friends with my fellow interns (one is a bridesmaid!) and the junior and seniors at the firm. We played poker, we had Happy Hours on Fridays when we all managed to trickle back into town--CityBoy puts it best when he says it was like we had all been to war together.
Somewhere between the out-of-town jobs and the Happy Hours, CityBoy and I started talking to each other with increasing frequency. We talked about our problems and things that were going on in our lives and ultimately, we decided to try things out together late one night while I was in Flagstaff, Arizona.
We made plans to get together on April 4th, 2007, the night I got back from Flagstaff, and the rest is history. CityBoy came over to my house while I unpacked from the trip and we've pretty much been inseparable since then. We both instantly felt the connection we had and the very next night, CityBoy came over to the house to hang out again, this time while I packed to go to my parents' house for Easter, and we stayed up all night talking.
We still stay up all night talking sometimes, and I'm always reminded of our first days together. Everyone always told me that the person I will spend the rest of my life with should be someone I'm never bored with. That's certainly true of CityBoy and I'm so glad we decided to take things to the next level. He has most definitely been the best thing to ever happen to me.
