Remember this day!
Last night after rehearsal I walked Jeni back to her dorm and asked her if she wanted to go for a walk today at 1:00 p.m. She said yes.
So I called her at 12:55 p.m. and reminded her. I met her at her dorm and we took at walk down to Elk River on the back side of campus. We talked about a few things. We saw something really neat on the other side of the creek, so we tried to cross. One part was too wide between the rocks, so I suggested that she go first. I’m not sure why I offered for her to go first, but she did and, yep, she fell in. She fell right on her but and her jeans were soaked. We both laughed and picked on each other. We sat down and talked about one thing, knowing we were thinking about another. I knew it was up to me to say something.
As we walked back, I said this:
“Jeni, I know that I have told you about meeting my friends at Carowinds and how they will probably want to go around with me. But the one person I really want to go on all the rides with and see all the concerts with is you. A week ago, I didn’t even know your name, but now I can’t stop thinking about you and I think you should know that.”
She smiled and said, “Well, I’m glad you feel that way.”
I didn’t know what to say, so I just took a hold of her hand. “So, can I see you?” I asked.
“Yes!” she said.
I’m suppose to meet her for dinner at five.
My roommate tells me that my brother Kevin called, as well as some other girl. He didn’t get her name.
September 22, 1994.
I am about five weeks older than Jeni.
Veronica was five years younger.
I know it sounds stupid, but this is a first for me.
