Having run into each other at the University Chapel, Cafeteria, Walmart lines, and at Focus, an interest began to grow. During our 2010 Fall Semester we would see each other in passing as I left class and he came in. We would secretly wait in the lobby hoping to catch the other, while we talked to our mutual friend, Thor. After a few weeks of this, and many promises of hanging out beyond the Chapel lobby, I got tired of waiting. Wishing that I had clenched a date, I walked back up the stairs and into his classroom. As he was getting settled in his chair and ready for class, I threw my hands on the desk in front of him and said, “Tappy we should hang out sometime!” Agreeing, he messaged me on facebook that day to set up a time to meet. Our first outing was to the Lovett’s Farm to make homemade apple cider. It was fun to interact with him and my Church family, as well as have such a unique first date. We spent the following days together. I assisted Tappy in borrowing a sound system for an outdoor movie night. When we went to see “Flipped” in the theatre, we raced down the isle, and swing danced in front of the big screen. Tappy invited me to explore an old abandoned house, and we stargazed until the sun came back up. Rollerblading, dancing, and dreaming were all a part of the great chemistry that started our relationship. Each day was filled with anticipation for the next adventure and the next step…. and the adventure continues.
