“Do you remember
When we fell in love
We were young
And innocent then
Do you remember
How it all began
It just seemed like heaven
So why did it end?”
Remember the Time….M.Jackson
So at my reunion, was my high school boyfriend, the Quarterback. He was my first, um…well first. LOL
We dated for two years (when in reality I was secretly in love with a boy named Chris in my homeroom who would eventually become the man I loved and lost to an untimely death). We dated my senior year and the Freshman year of college before the distance and excitement of meeting new people got to us.
We had a great high school relationship. We were popular, the Quarterback and the Fly Girl (at least I THOUGHT I was fly….the old pictures tell another story).
We were a power couple among maybe, four other couples.
Well it was hilarious to see these same couples at the reunion. Of course, they played…the famous MJ song above and made all of the high school couples dance.
We are both happily married with two sons. How ironic.
So while we danced and had every body yelling stuff about us on the dance floor…we were laughing about all of the old days. You know, when you would cut class and sneak the boy into your house and then try and have him out before your mama came home? Oh hush….you know what I am talking about….ole fast azzes!
Then we talked about the prom and remembered that the last song they played was “Adore” and that was OUR song. You know….old stuff that you forget but remember somewhere in the back of your mind?
Well we all had fun hanging out and reminiscing. It was great.
Of course, there was the moment right when we were all leaving and saying our goodbyes when he leaned in close, told me I still looked terrific, maybe better and that “those shoes you are wearing have been wreaking havoc on my equilibrium all night”.
1969 has still got it. LOL
