A Date That Lasted Over Three Days!

This eventful date was one to write the world about; and so, I would like to share with you the best date I have ever been on in my entire life.

It all started with a text message asking how was I doing.  The text messages turned into a phone conversation.  The phone conversation lasted about an hour before I had to end the call, so I could visit some family members.  Before we ended the call, “Mr. Compatible” (how I will refer to him in this blog) asked if I would pass by his job after I leave from visiting. 

After spending time with my folks, I texted Mr. Compatible and told him that I was on my way to see him. When I got to his job, we stood outside and talked for an hour. It was a pleasure chatting with him.  No slang.  I didn’t have to try and figure out what he was talking about.  He didn’t say stupid off the wall things.  Just a very pleasant, decent and intellectual conversation, the made me want to stay there all night.  We planned to meet on Saturday for a real date.

Oh, What a Day!

It all started off with a text message that stated “your flight has been delayed,” on the final day of my last trip! This delay generated a layover of three hours. Yes, ouch!  Sitting in the airport can be rather fun, but being there for three hours it can get a little unnerving.  We begin to pack up and start the journey towards the airport. Already trying to decide what in the world will we do for three hours? 
We arrived at the airport and noticed that the delay wasn’t going to be as long as we had thought, hooray!   We looked at each other and said okay everything should move along smoothly.  We got to the ticket counter and I asked for my identification and bank card from my travel companion, who had been holding them for me.
