(¸.·´ (¸.·´♥ A very special thanks to A for her marvelous love story:
"A year ago today, I randomly met a guy at a little coffee shop here in Austin, Texas. He talked about books, studying literature like I had in college, and playing his guitar. I really liked him. I tried not to giggle like a school girl, but it was hopeless. About an hour into our conversation we got to talking about our parents, and he said, "I don't know why they did it, but a few years ago my parents bought a house in a little town in Indiana." I said, "You've got to be kidding! My parents did the same thing!" and then we realized that his parents live nine miles away from my parents in Vigo County. What are the odds of that? My mom called it fate. Her three girlfriends use the term "destiny" freely when they chat about us, and none of them was surprised when we decided to get married this summer in what used to be the Crossroads of America. Our destination....wedding: Downtown Terre Haute, Indiana on the Wabash River and in sight of Indiana State University."
(¸.·´ (¸.·´♥ A very special thanks to E for her marvelous Spring story:
"First of all, I love this idea of making people tell you stories. How entertaining! However I do feel like I'm back in school; I hope I get a good grade. :)
Growing up in Texas, there's really no discernible start to spring. There's really no spring at all. Your seasons are summer and freeze. I was a wildly romantic child, and I longed for those fragrant blooming white trees and colorful bulbs peeking out--all the stuff you read in books. I SHOULD have been strolling along brooks and streams and listening to birdsong, but instead it was a/c units blaring and allergies and the loud and somewhat annoying mockingbirds.
Still, I tried to welcome spring. Somewhere along the way I had read that if you apply the dew from Mayday morning to your face that you will be young and beautiful forever. I *mostly* knew that wasn't true, but it still sounded like a perfectly appropriate thing to do, so early May first, I got up and dressed in one of my vintage dresses and set out to apply some dew. Well, if you've ever lived in southern Texas you know the grass isn't really... grass. It's more like spikes--with fire ants. It would be a much funnier story if I said that I was bit all over by fire ants and swollen and puffy--anything but eternal beauty, but no, I just rather awkwardly tried to slather dew from the spiky front yard onto my face.
This would probably be a cute story if I were, like, 8 years old. But I was 17. My parents found this to be hilarious. They invited one and all to watch. They took a picture of me so they could laugh for years to come. Thanks mom and dad. But you know, people always say I look young for my age, I never wash my face and there is not a wrinkle to be found. Maybe the embarrassment was worth it. I think it just might have worked....
Phew! 307 words. I hope I passed!
Thanks, that was fun"
