...And I Married Him?

So many of you read my guest post the other day about the time I was tricked into a date.  If you didn't, click here.  Today, I thought I'd share another questionable dating experience...

The first time the hubby and I hung out wasn't technically a date.  
Our first date was a few weeks later.
But this day is definitely notable. 

We had been talking on the phone for a few weeks and decided to hang out.  I was going to be in New Braunfels with my family and he would be around that weekend.  So we arranged for him to pick me up.  The evening started out funny, because my parents insisted on meeting him.  He was totally thrown off by that.  

After the meeting, and questioning how his 6'9" body folded into his Mustang, we were on our way.  Since my parents were giving me a curfew, yes I was 21 and had a curfew, we'd decided to just go to his friend's apartment to hang out.

On the way there, he put on a Charlie Robison song.   
Let me make this clear- I am a country music fan.  And I really like Charlie Robison.  But please read the lyrics this sweet, romantic man decided to sing to me:

Well you ain't so fine but you're all mine
And I'll love you till the end
So darling don't you worry cause they
Say that love is blind
Lust has eyes like an eagle
It's gonna drive me out of my mind
Though my eyes sometimes wander
It doesn't mean that I'm untrue
You're not the best but you're the best that I can do

I would like to take a minute and say that I am quite feisty, so these lyrics did not shake my resolve at all.  I actually found it quite refreshing that he was giving me a hard time.  Instead I looked at him and jokingly said "I think it's time you take me home now, jerk."

 We drove on towards his buddy's place while I told him about the lunch I'd had with my family.  We'd eaten at a restaurant called Oma's- and paused to inform him that it was German food.  He responded with a sarcastic, "Oh is it?  I couldn't tell, seeing as how it was called Oma's."

Again, I responded with, "I think it's time you take me home now, jerk."

We arrive at his best friend's apartment and are introduced.  His bff proceeded to ask me out- in front of my (now) hubby!  Come to think of it, I'm pretty sure I said yes...

We hung out and my curfew quickly arrived, so the hubby took me back to my parents' hotel room.  I won't mention how he forgot to put the car in park when he went to kiss my cheek.  That would embarrass him.
