I still remember the first time I saw her. You know, I always thought it was corny when people would say "It seems like it was only yesterday," but in this case it really does. It was back when I was living down south. There was this winter dance at my high school. Well, I didnít plan on going. But then, at the last moment, on an impulse I got dressed and went. I didnít know that many people, being new to the area, so I really just wandered around. I did have one good friend back then, though. His name was Steve, and it just so happened that he wasnít there. I decided that Iíd give him a call, so that we could at least wander around together. I went up to the phones...the dance was downstairs in the gym...I went up to the phones and there she was. She was guarding one of the phones because she had just paged a friend and was waiting for him to call back. Well, we chit chatted for a little while, and I made my call. Steve wasnít home. We talked for a little longer, then I excused myself and went back downstairs. I wandered around for a bit more when I felt this tap on my shoulder. I turned around and there she was. God, she looked great. She asked me to dance. Well, of course I said yes. We spent the rest of the night just dancing and talking. As the night ended, I couldnít bear to let her away, so I gathered every shred of courage I had and asked her out. She said yes. Donít you love it when they say yes?
