 happy anniversary, baby...


ray and i met six years ago today.

we were at a halloween party. i was dressed as a highway, he had his face painted like a skull.

he approached me in the kitchen and started a conversation. later, after a few weeks of dating, he told me i had been twirling my hair that night, flirting. i don't remember that. must've been a subconscious behavior.

as we talked he said the face paint was affecting his "delicate wink areas". i thought that was cute.

at one point he disappeared into the bathroom and came back with exactly half of his face paint washed off. i figured he wanted me to get an idea of what his face looked like, and to prove that he wasn't, in fact, a skeleton. i had an idea he was interested in me.

the party started dying down. mary and i decided to leave, to head out to another halloween party. ray had disappeared again, though, so we ended up leaving without saying goodbye to him. later i learned that he had gone back into the bathroom to wash off the rest of the skull-face. he says he was sad when he emerged and i was gone.

but because we both knew the party hostess we were easily able to get in touch with each other. we had our first date about a week later. and the rest, as they say, is history.

You have a lovely evening.

A highway...sheesh, this year you are probably not even large enough to be an exit ramp.

How spookily sweet. Speet? Swooky?
