    Re: Friday QOTW #2 4/18 - Who is the "love of your life"?

    Went to some meetings...plane home had mechanical problems. After five hours of changing out parts & stuff, they realized that most of us had connecting flights in Denver and we would get there too late to catch any later flights that night. They decided to keep us where we were so they bussed all the passengers to a hotel, fed us & paid for our rooms for the night. Paid the bar tab for a while also. A gang of us (all total strangers) gathered at the hot tub. When they shut that down, we got dressed & met back in the bar. I met this really hunky guy from New Zealand, and had a wonderful time talking to him...he was a pretty good dancer, so bonus! Stayed there dancing & talking until they kicked us out of there as well. Saw him the next morning - most of the passengers were pretty quiet (horribly hungover). Didn't see him again after we boarded the plane as he was up in the front section, I was in the cheap seats, and he was long-gone when I got off the plane. If I was single, might have made more of an effort...but it was a fun evening over 30 years ago that I still remember with a smile. :)

    My first inclination was “stupid thread” but than I did a deep memory scan and I think I have one so I can play. Maybe this will get you all back on track:

    Many years ago my buddy had a female co-worker that was moving from Minneapolis to Phoenix and she was looking for someone to drive with her. I had friends in Phoenix (ISU couple I knew from college) and I said I would drive with her, visit friends and fly back. We didn't meet until the morning we started the trip. Turned into a long road trip with a shredded tire blowout and delays for tire shopping/replacement etc. Over the course of 1600 miles we both went from “not sure I like this person” to “I kinda really like this person." Unfortunately she was moving to Phoenix to be with her boyfriend. After I got dropped off at my friends I remember them saying “What’s up with that? You both look like you were saying bye to your best friend.”

    Only a CF thread would have me remember that little tidbit.

    PS: Honorable mention to (1) the redheaded waitress at the old Copper Dollar bar in Ames who had a musky perfume that cut through the smoke filled bar (2) the cute gal from Maple who wrote me over the summer to tell me about the “Oreo” Speedwagon (aka REO!) concert she went to (3) the gal in HS that I wanted to go to prom with but she couldn’t because her best friend, who I wasn’t attracted to, wanted me to ask her (1969 HS drama!).

    My first was a girl I met at a wedding dance in high school. Really cute, funny and danced with my goofy *** for a couple hours (which could mean that she was crazy and/or blind) She ended up living on he other side of the state so we just parted ways at the end of the night.

    My other was during my frosh year at ISU. She was a friend of my sister and a senior. Did the flirting thing back and forth a bit, but I was still pretty shy and never pushed the issue. Later that year, my sis tells me that her friend was into me at the time.

    Kinda like Boxster, I'd forgotten about both. Good thread

    Who lets their GF drive cross country 1600 miles with a complete stranger who is a dude? PS - You left out details involving any road "action".

    Well I am assuming this was the 70s so its not like there were a ton of options. Also... trust.

    PLOT TWIST: You were really drunk and it was your male friend on the other side of you at the bar. You just thought it was the girl walking out the door.
    That's more likely. Any woman that thinks I am really fine must live far north of the Vicky Mendoza line or have been raised in a convent and never seen many men.

    The one that got away just has that air of mystery about her because you never got the chance to know her well enough to be completely annoyed by her.

    Later that evening...

    Bar tender walks up, wiping out a glass he had just washed. "Sad deal last year when that woman died here"

    "what do you mean?" asked Gr8.

    Bartender responds, "oh you didnt know, yeah, a woman with long blonde hair and a nice *** was found dead, murdered in the restroom right back there. Pretty scary. Some say she still haunts this bar. I dont believe in all that nonsense though..."

    The bartender picks up another wet glass to dry off and walks away.
