Naked Hand Towel Hot Guy With Really Nice Legs And The Most Beautiful Eyes I've Ever Seen makes some more small talk and then points me in the direction of Matt's house.
And I leave.
A little dazed and confused.
We ended up running into each other again later that night.
It turns out Naked Hand Towel Hot Guy With Really Nice Legs And The Most Beautiful Eyes I've Ever Seen Plus Really Great Hair has a girlfriend.
She must have heard the story of our meeting.
But that didn't stop Future Hubby* and I from becoming friends.
*I will call him this now because if I continued to add all the other adjectives for his appealing characteristics as I got to know him better to "Naked Hand Towel Guy"...well, we could be here forever.
And he turned out to be a wonderful friend.
Over the next couple of years we had a lot of fun hanging out. He was always there to make sure I was doing okay.
He showed up at the hospital when Nae was born and I was all alone.
If I heard a motorcycle pull up outside the little apartment Nae and I lived in, I knew it was him stopping by to see how we were doing.
When my sister, Alex passed away he listened to all the endless talk I did about her and comforted me when I cried.
We started dating not long after that. It only took 3 years after that awkward meeting in his garage.
Hubby says he can still remember what I was wearing that day (he IS the ultimate "detail guy").
And for once, I can say the same.
It was a towel.
A green one.
Or maybe it was blue?
