Letters To My Dead Mother: I met THE boy

March 21st, 1990

Dear Mom,

Tonight I met a boy that I knew before. Only this time when we looked at each other-it was like the movies- like it was a light switch blazed full power on. Alex was a friend of one of Jackie’s boyfriends from a couple of years ago. He was a bit of a jerk. Mind you eighteen year old boys are really into themselves. I was only fourteen at that time. Anyhow, we had not seen each other since they broke up. I was with some friends who one of the guys knew him. They yelled at me to come on over and I looked up and there he was. I felt like I was glowing the whole time. I still feel like I am glowing as I write this to you. I felt so safe and secure with him. I just wanted to be near him. Magnetized perhaps? I won’t say I am in love at this point. Something tells me this is what love is. Yuck just like the song. How gushy mushy. I don’t have anyone really that I can tell these things to or at least to sort out what my feeling really are. So he asked me out right then and there when he brought me home. Of course, I said yes. I hope there are more great stories to tell you. Thanks for listening to me.

Nighty night.
