It was August 26, 2001.
The day came sooner than I thought it would. Oh, how nervous I was. I wanted to be late. I did NOT want to have to talk to "this guy" before I absolutely had to. How was I going to handle this? I took my sweet time getting ready for church. Late. Late Late. I needed to be late. Really.
We drove slowly. I wasn't normal. This couldn't be normal. I was way to nervous about meeting this new email friend of mine. Way to nervous. It wasn't like we "met" on the internet. We were set up for communication over the internet, but this was too weird for me. Meeting some 24 year old guy. He was too old for me. I was sure he was a nice guy and all that, but 24-year-old's aren't looking to be friends with some girl who lives 200+ miles away from where he lived. Were they?
