Happy Heart Day!

Cover of Love at First Bite

Time goes by so quickly, I can’t believe ten days since my last post. I went to mall today and saw the people in the card section buying a Valentine Day card for their beloved. I thought to myself, wow look at all those people succumbing to media pressure. Then I went over and started to look also; after all I know the value of a card, and I wasn’t married yesterday, so I know better than to protest.

I tried to find a blank card, as I am a firm believer that the card is an opportunity to do something meaningful by sharing thoughts or expressions that expressed any other time of the year could be interpreted as you had just learned you have a terminal disease.

My first date with my wife Sue, was August 6, 1979 and I blogged about that date before. We went waterskiing, and I pushed her off the dock – she came up smiling and I was smitten. That night we went to a cheesy B movie – Love at First Bite, and I guess I was bitten!  We dated for awhile before I had the courage to try to give her a kiss, and it didn’t turn out too well. I caught at a bad moment and she couldn’t breath so she pushed me away, I thought too soon even though we were way past the “third date” 🙂 She gave me another chance soon and it wasn’t long before I was worried about losing her because I knew she was special.

SAMSUNG DIGIMAX 420It struck me this week though how young I was, we both were, when six months or so later we got married. Where did we get the confidence to make such a big step so quickly?  As Paul McCartney said – You’re asking me will our love grow? I guess I believed so, and I was right.  So right.

There must have been “Something

Something in the way she moves
Attracts me like no other lover
Something in the way she woos me

I don’t want to leave her now
You know I believe and how

Somewhere in her smile she knows
That I don’t need no other lover
Something in her style that shows me

I don’t want to leave her now
You know I believe and how

You’re asking me will my love grow?
I don’t know, I don’t know
You stick around now it may show
I don’t know, I don’t know

Something in the way she knows
And all i have to do is think of her
Something in the things she shows me

I don’t want to leave her now
You know I believe and how

    Great story, Dave. I especially liked the part about your first kiss with Susan. I’m not sure I’m confident enough to blog about my first kiss with my wife… One of those “inside joke” moments, for sure!
