20 years ago today I was minding my own business, planning to spend the evening with my friends Lee & M. Lee & I decided to go wild & crazy – so we rented “Nine ½ Weeks” with Kim Basinger & Mickey Rourke. That was the extent of our crazy – there wasn’t even any alcohol involved that I recall, but then we were house-sitting our seminary professor’s home. Boy that was a steamy movie!
Lee left to “do laundry” back at the dorm (that was code for “call an ex-boyfriend she had no business talking to”), so M & I started cleaning up the kitchen. That’s when it happened.
I don’t know how or why, but that night M & I crossed the line of friendship into the something more. It was a pretty dramatic shift for us, which is why we remember the date so well.
Seems like yesterday.
Seems like always.
Love you, dear heart.
