Part Two: The Roomie

Honestly, I loved D.C.

I enjoyed working on The Hill.

I also took a job as a Barista at “The Bux.”

I had a great roomie, H.

We met online so you KNOW we were doomed to have an amazing relationship.

She had a great friend. Q. that I should meet.

Meanwhile she was falling head over heals for this guy.

They have since gotten married and had a kid. They aren’t happy are they…

So anyway, she invited Q and his roomie over for supper and we “met.” I smelled like Starbucks and was late. I thought he had nice muscular arms, he thought I had nice hair. H. and I laughed our way through the entire meal and I was certain he thought us ridiculous. He NOW says that he DID think we were ridiculous, but we were funny so it was “ok.” What H. and I could have eaten for a week, the boys polished off in half an hour. I will ALWAYS be thankful for H. inviting those guys over…

    A funny part of the background story is that a few years before, when Q and I both graduated from college, we took a picture together and said that it would be fun to see what happened to one another down the road. I had no idea we’d meet up again, much less that I would get to introduce him to his wife!
