ROSS: I don't know whether he's testing me, or just acting out, but my monkey is out of control. But, he keeps erasing the messages on my machine, supposedly by accident.

RACHEL: Oh, yeah, I've done that.

ROSS: And then, like three days in a row he got to the newspaper before I did and pee-ed all over the crossword.

RACHEL: I've never done that.

Boy Meets Girl: Part One!

This week my blog will be a compilation if a turning point in my life. Well it may take more than a week. This started at the ripe old age of 17. Here is the first installment.

April 1997: Boy Meets Girl

I remember the day so well. It was lunch time my junior year of high school. I was with my friends Tena (yes the punky monkey) and Brandi. There may have been others, but I have the worst memory when it comes to people! A fight had ensued and everyone of course was running to it. We were of course making fun of them all, because we all knew that the fight would be over by the time everyone got there. During this time Brandi was telling me that one of her boyfriends baseball coaches wanted to meet me. He had seen me at one of the baseball games the previous week. The first thought that went through my head was, "I am only 17, what would some pervert coach want with me?" I mean coaches had wives and kids, that is why they coached. So, I went to the next game. It was a Saturday and I had spent the day shopping for a prom dress (yes I was going with another guy... more on that later). When they pointed this guy out I was in shock that this young guy was a coach. (He was 19) Oh and did I mention he was H-O-T hot!

***Background: Before that night I had had a total of 3 very short lived boyfriends that had had any significance in my life. My self esteem at this point hit rock bottom, so this guy wanting to meet me was not something I really believed! I was also going to these games to get another boy to notice me! ***

After the game this guy came walking up. He was wearing warm up pants, a Boston Red Sox shirt and baseball cap. The baseball cap was tilted sideways. He thought he was so cool, well I did too! I could smell Tommy cologne. We were introduced and made plans to meet up later after everyone cleaned up.

He had his own car. A Ford Escort and when he drove away he had the song 'Notorious Thugs'. To this day I associate the song with Tommy cologne! Of course he probably thought he was so cool as he drove off.

We all met up later at my friends boyfriend's house. When this guy walked in my jaw dropped! I mean the man was gorgeous. In my head I thought 'What does he want with me?' (again no confidence).

A friend on the team was having a little get together. We weren't there very long. I do remember Brandi freaking out because she did not like driving up hills. It was a milestone for her. After we left I ended up riding with this guy and his friends. In the car he asked me if my friend Brenna had a boyfriend. At this point I figured he was over me and now wanted my friend. I of course lied saying I did not know. I was selfish and wanted this boy to myself. Later on I did find out that his friend wanted to know... oops silly me.

We ended up going to the movies in Norwalk. We saw Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion. Not really a first group date movie to see. We barely talked, even up to this point, because for one I was really nervous!

After the movie we headed to Taco Bell. "What city are we in?" I think Tena might remember this. We couldn't tell what city we were actually in, because we were on the cusp of 2 different cities. I look to the street sign and see City of Norwalk underneath the street. I thought I was so smart until I look up and across the street there is a huge sign that says Norwalk Square... yeah not one of our proudest moments, but to this day this guy and I still joke about it!

We went to Brandi's house after and hung out. It was very late at this point. Well I was so nervous that I made myself sick (if you know what I mean). I spent the rest of the night in the bathroom and never got to say good-bye. At this point I had no phone number and figured that this was the end of that!

To Be Continued...
