The first time I saw him, he was wearing a hot pink pants. (technically it wasn’t pink, he insists it is dark magenta and I disagreed. It could have been magenta at the time he bought it, but the QLD sun has done its magic to make it looks pink) James Brown was singing hot pants in my head and I really had to bite my tongue, so I won’t laugh. I do come across as a lunatic who smiles for no reason (often because I have songs playing in my head that are apt for the situation that makes me laugh, which unfortunately no one else can hear) and it is really embarrassing.
I do remember noticing his mesmerising azure blue eyes.
It was always easy to spot him in the crowd. He is really handsome and always well dressed and we met each other often at the coffee shop.
One thing led to another and we found we have so much in common. We both like Cappuccino with extra chocolate, we both prefer our drinks to be very hot We both switch off the phone when we don’t want to talk to anyone and then claim there was no cell phone reception. I think the only difference I could think of is..when I come back home, I usually wash my legs and hands and jump in to my bed, so I can read. He can’t stand that. He only gets in to bed after a shower.
I had no intention of falling in love ever. I have a good life and I am happy with my life.
We got along well as friends and I was happy with that.
It was a very hot day and we were out all day. I don’t do well in heat and I was coming down with a migraine. I went to take a quick shower, so I could take my medicine and go to bed before my migraine got worst. I had not told him that I was going to get the mother of all migraine. ..yet when I came out of the shower, on the bedside table was a glass of cold water and my migraine medicine.
It was the glass of cold water that made me fall in love with him.
They say love takes your breath away, often not in a good way.. love makes you uncertain.. and nervous.. it takes away what you thought you know until all you know is you love someone..
I never ever wanted to fall in love because when you allow someone in to your life, then you are also allowing the possibility of that someone leaving you.. Yet I did.. because I would have to be made of stone not to have fallen in love with a guy who could do something so simple.. yet so caring.
