like that very first moment we kissed….

madonna. (7k image)i got back from nashville yesterday morning around ten. i walked down and i grabbed my luggage off the belt….jumped in the bus to take me back to long term parking… in my truck…..and drove to work. i walked into voicemails…..emails…..and about forty pounds of faxes. welcome to my world of suck.

everything was amazing in nashville. i got in last wednesday around six or seven…..the plane was a little late. and jessica was waiting for me just beyond the security gates. i don’t know how to explain how i feel when i see her… matter where we are…..i just feel like i’m home when i’m with her. and that’s the feeling i got again when i saw her standing there. so we went back to her house. emily and amanda were already there… we all hung out for a bit…..but they left shortly after i got there. so jessica and i just hung out for the rest of the night…..we went to ruby tuesdays for dinner…..because it was the only place that was close and opened. i drank two lagers… must’ve been jet lag. the food wasn’t bad…..we were both so hungry by that point…..i think aluminum and ketchup would’ve been tasty.

the next day she had to work… i eventually walked up to her parent’s house and met her mom. she fed me and then we sat in their screened in porch watching finches and hummingbirds…..talking about random things. it’s funny…..i didn’t really feel uncomfortable at all….maybe because some of her mannerisms are like jessica’s. i don’t know. eventually her brother, david, came home. all of us talked for a bit…..then david and i ran out to have the oil changed in her mother’s car. he and i don’t have much in common…..but he’s incredibly sweet. he made me feel so welcomed there. they all did. i was really grateful. i ventured back down to jessica’s house later and waited for her to come home. when she did…..we went back up to her folk’s place for dinner…..where i met her other brother and her father. meeting the father is always interesting. you never know what thoughts are really floating around in their heads. so i just tried to be as respectful as possible…..and not grope jessica as i talked to him. but at the end of the evening he told me to come back soon… i think i won him over. i think.

the rest of the week and weekend was filled with various stuff. we went downtown and ate at market street brewing company…..and the waiter may or may not have uttered the word slut at one point…..but we couldn’t tell. i met some of her coworkers when we stopped by home center network…..and i was also embarrassed at the salon when we went there to pick “something” up. yeah…..i could see through that ruse. it’s one thing to be introduced to your girlfriend’s manicurist…’s another thing to be ogled by the entire group of women IN the salon when this introduction is made. thanks, honey. 😉 i also met some more of her friends when we went downtown to go to a microbrew festival. how much do i love this girl??

so of course all of that time flies by…..and i wake up and it’s monday morning. and it’s four thirty in the morning…..and i don’t want to leave. but we get out of bed anyway…..and i pack. and we drive to the airport. and we say goodbye. and i watch her walk away. and i get on a plane back to baltimore. and i come to this office. and i sit here and think about her. and pass the time until i see her again.
