Or looooooove, as I hear it in my head.
This season is love for double reasons.
#1 is obviously Valentine's Day.
#2 is it's my hunnybun's birthday on the day before Valentine's Day.
I think I've already mentioned that, when we first met, he thought this meant that we didn't have to celebrate Valentine's Day.
Don't worry. We fixed that up right quick.
Anyway, I'm kind of nosy when it comes to this love stuff.
I want to know everybody's business.
So I'm gonna be brave.
I figure, I should get the ball rolling by sharing a story first, and then,
if you're very very nice
and don't want me to develop a blog complex
about being the only one at my linky party
you'll link up, too
and tell us
ok, mostly me...
Now, I want to be fair.
I didn't have a hunny for a loooong time.
I spent my fair share of evenings drinking wine
eating frosting (I know. Counterproductive to catching a man)
and watching Bridget Jones.
So I get it.
If you don't currently have a hunny,
you can write about how you would LIKE to meet your hunny,
which means you can write whatever fantasy you'd like.
Cause if I was writing that post,
it definitely wouldn't go like this:
I've worked for my school district for 9 years.
A few years ago, my campus had a disaster.
By that I mean there was mold.
In the campus.
In the air.
In the library.
It ruined ALL the books in the WHOLE library
and damaged LOTS of stuff in the WHOLE school.
My school had to be bused every day across town to a vacant old school building
that was gross
and didn't have anything in it
and that was our home for a year.
To make an incredibly long story short
I wasn't too happy.
we were going to have to move classrooms again.
I had it.
So I went and spoke at a board meeting.
I wasn't very nice
but I wasn't that mean either
but it got the job done
because other people heard and helped us
and we didn't have to move again.
I wasn't a favorite in the public relations office,
I could live with that.
Well, two months later, my friend nagged me into setting up a Yahoo! personal profile.
Ew, some say.
But it was kind of fun.
'Something to do' as my mother would say.
So I did it
and started checking out some dudes online.
I 'winked' at this cute guy
who looked like Fred Flintstone
and said he worked for my district, in multimedia.
Multimedia, I thought.
Instructional Technology Department, probably.
A week went by.
I was seeing other guys from the site, but they were pretty
Finally, he responded!
First we just emailed,
when he manned up and called,
when his brother made him do it
we got to talking on the phone. He said,
"You know, I see so many teachers. I'm surprised we've never met."
Taking a long shot, I said,
"Well, do you remember that teacher from ___fill in school name___ who came and spoke at the board meeting?"
"YEAH! The crazy who ripped everybody a new *%&hole?"he said, in an animated tone.
"Yes. That was me," I said, charitably.
"Ah. Well......then I do remember you," he pathetically responded. "I work in public relations. We recorded it. My boss isn't too crazy about you."
Later, I was able to ask this man,
who would eventually be my hunnybun,
"What did you think when you called me a crazy?"
He said, "Open mouth. Insert foot. I was mostly just relieved that you didn't get upset."
Of course I didn't get upset. I knew I looked like a crazy.
People who stick up for kids always do.
Anyway, we set a time to meet
three years ago
in a Village Inn
and fell in
Now I'm working on step 2.
But anyway, that's How I Met My Hunny.
I spilled the embarrassing beans!
And keep in mind, this is my first linky party
and I'm having anxiety about it.
And if this thing doesn't work, please tell me! :)
