You know I'm no good with words, but... I love you so much!!!

This page was originally made as a "gift" for Valentine's Day 2021, but morphed over time...


If you're not John, please leave!

About 00 days 00 hours 00 minutes 00 seconds ago, I was standing on Broadway, waiting for bus #49 to the U District, and so were you!

You asked for a lighter to light your cigarette, and we started talking.

I remember your blue bike, and the Chick tract in your spokes, Doom Town!

We chatted on the bus, exchanged phone numbers, and went our separate ways...

A few days later(?), we started hanging out. We had our first date at that Mexican restaurant upstairs from QFC (where you first told me you loved me!), and we've been inseparable ever since!
