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?
