Today's entry is from Vickie M:
A Night at the Movies...
One evening late in the summer I went to my parents' house to have dinner.
My older brother was home from college and was there too, but both of our little brothers, then in high school, were out on dates. Not wanting to appear that we had no social life, my brother Derek and I decided to go see a movie together.
We checked the paper (this was pre-internet!) and rushed off because the show we wanted to see was starting soon. It was a crowded Friday night at this Bay Area theater but while we were waiting in line I spotted 2 of my former roommates. I left my brother to buy the tickets and went over to say hi to them and they introduced me to two guy friends they were with. Turns out they were trying to see the same movie but it was already sold out. As my brother hollered from the ticket line that the show was sold out they were inviting us to go play pool at Craig's house, the shorter of the two friends they were with.
We spent about 5 hours together that night and since Craig only lived a few blocks from my house I managed to work it out so we drove him home since my old roommates had picked him up.
He and Derek were talking about getting together for some big football game the next week (he could still tell you who was playing!) so I suggested we all trade phone numbers.
One phone call and one week later we had our first date and that night he told me he wanted to marry me. It took me a couple weeks until I "knew" too.
We were married nearly two years later (that's another story!) and the rest, as they say, is history!
