Sunday? Boo!!!


Sunday?  Who allowed Sunday to happen?  My weekend's over.

As I peck this post out on my little netbook, I am roughly over Yellowstone National Park (won't post until after i get home and get a Wi-Fi connection, of course), flying back from visiting Cora.  You may have overheard us talking about it.

If you are interested, I'm sure we'll both be telling stories all week.  The things we won't do for post material.

For those of you wondering, my flight got in a few minutes early, so I cleared security, but Cora still had her nose in a book, and didn't see me approach until I was about 5 feet away.  She popped right up, we said a quick, "Hello", and we had our first kiss right there on the spot.  I doubt any of the people looking on had any idea that it was our first.  There would be a few more to follow over the weekend, but like Fred Savage in The Princess Bride, I'm sure you don't want to be bore with all the kissing stuff. 


The rest of the weekend had a weird time warpiness to it.  It was over way, way to fast.  But the individual moments lingered with a luxurious smoothness, similar to the chocolate mousse at the restaurant.  Saying "Goodbye" was tough.  So we tried "See you soon."  I'm trying to imagine it as just getting closer to the next time I see her, when she comes to visit over Memorial Day weekend in just over a month.  Oh?  You didn't think we'd already would have a follow up trip already discussed?  Seriously?  What kind of boyfriend would I be?  WHAT?!?!!  Did I just use the word, 'boyfriend'?

Yes, I did.

(Did I just hear Sassy Britches squeal all the way from here?)

But that's enough for now.  More snapshots (literal and figurative) will be posted in the days to come.

PS – The craziest part of the craziness of flying 2,000 miles for a first, second, and third date with Cora is how utterly normal and rational it felt.

PPS – We did sleep together on Saturday.  After a morning of exploring downtown Seattle, we were a little tired, so we took naps in the car for about 45 minutes, holding hands the whole time.  That's what you meant, right?

I heard Sassy's squeal from this side of the pond, maybe there was a nice North-Easterly to help it along.

Some Guy said...

Very cool, you two!

Cora said...

Ow! I heard Sassy's squeal too. Yikes.

Awww, you beat me to it. I didn't get my post done in time. I'll be posting it later in the day. I knew you'd be the punctual one!!

My dear, sleeping with you in my car on our second date was delightfully HOT. Y'know, with all the sun shining through the windows and stuff. ;-)

And you are one spectacular boyfriend by the way!!!! (insert happy giggle here) This weekend was absolutely lovely. I miss you, I miss you, I MISS YOU!! And I can NOT wait for next month!!

Currently Untitled said...

wow, heard the squeal in Australia too! must say though, i did a little answering one ;)

and i knew you were 6 ft or something but geez man, you are TALL! :p

thanks for the name suggestions. though it seems you became a boyfriend and i became a divorcee!

Vodka Mom said...

I rushed right over as soon as I heard the blood curdling scream!

anyone hurt????

Lisa said...

On behalf of our little blog world, I would like to extend a thank you to Eric and Cora for planning this all out so that the rest of us can read all about it.

Only true friends would 'take one for the team' like this and go to so much trouble just for blog material.


Thank you.

...and what's with all the screaming I hear in bloggyville this morning. geesh... I haven't had my coffee yet, and the noise is just deafening.

Lisa said...

o and can i just say how cute you two are. ;-)

Candy's daily Dandy said...

oh my! did you use the B-word?????

AHHHHHH! I'm so glad you did. Much love and happiness goes out to you two crayzee kids!!

It's like we ALL took a part in getting you together.

*sniff* we're so proud...

Laura - Are We Nearly There Yet Mummy? said...

Ahhhh, lovely!

I met my husband on the tinternet ten years ago.

sas said...

you both sound completely smitten :)

SkylersDad said...

This is great!! Looking at the picture of you two, you can see how happy you are, and that you are made for each other.

But Scope, buy her a box or a small step stool to stand on so you don't hurt your back!

Jan @ Struck by Serendipity said...

You two look like an adorable couple! I can't wait to hear more about it.

Sounds like Cora set the bar pretty high. You had better start planning the next date in Chicago now to top Seattle!

Soda and Candy said...


Y'all are so cute!

J.J. in L.A. said...

Boyfriend? Boyfriend???Squeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!

You two are SO cute I can't stand it! I want more pictures! : )

1) Scope dear, do Cora a favor and quit wearing the high heels k? It could strain her neck having to look up that much all the time

2) Speak for yourself...I wanna be bored with all the kissing stuff.

3) I think y'all heard Sassy's squeal so clearly because my squeal harmonized with hers. I'm sure Cora heard me at least, we live in the same ten mile radius (not that I stalk her or anything, but based on previous emails back and forth...I've deduced the area)

Sassy Britches said...

EEEEEeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!! Complete with feet stomping and turning in a circle and a big dose of Jiggle-butt!

I sure hope Cora didn't read your comment over on my blog! It must have been a boring weekend (snicker-snicker) if one of your favorite parts was hanging out with us at the Cheesecake factory. Either that or you can quit the BS, the interview is over and you sorta passed. LOL!
Nah, really, it was good to meet you!

PS good pic of the two of you!

Dr Zibbs said...

Since I'm the only mature reader that you guys have, please email me details and I will offer to transcribe them in a post in a very clinical, serious way.

Now if you'll excuse me I need to go look up the medical term for weiner.

Scope said...

Callista - I said, "one of". We did try to behave in front of you. I think we may have scarred a few prople at teh Sci-Fi museum, though. ;-)

Anonymous said...

HAha... I don't think you can really scare people at the Sci-Fi museum.

Cora said...

There were other people in the Sci-Fi Museum? Hmm.... Oddly, I don't remember other people existing there. Maybe that's just me.

Shana said...

That is so cool. Yay and congrats to both of you!!

Gwen said...

Oh, that makes me so happy! Yay!

Although I have to say it was a bold move to go for the first kiss right away. I at least waited an hour before I kissed Whiskeymarie.


raf said...

Awwwwwwwww!Sleeping in the car while holding hands!How sweet!
This "telling just a bit" is killing me!C'mooon!Like a tv serial...can't wait for the next day to see what's going on!

mike said...

Wow. Nicely done. (unless you are both making this up, in which case it is WICKED nicely done.) By the way, Cora's kind of a young hottie. I am impressed.
