We jumped out of the van.
We had taken the Silver Fox to get new tires & rims... (why didn't anyone contact "pimp my ride" for us??) On the way home, we had to stop at Sobeys to get my veggies for supper. It was just the 2 of us, as we had left the crew at home to make things quick.
Instinctively, i reached for his hand at the same moment he was reaching for mine & i smiled.
He was all dressed up in his work clothes & spiffy dress shoes.
i was wearing Peyton's skull & crossbones sneakers & a hoodie.
If you'd have seen us, i'm sure you would have done a double take - "they're together?"
It reminded me of when Neil & i first started dating. He was in the middle of rugby season... & i was home from arts college. i'd show up at his games in my hippy dresses & later, he'd take me out for ice cream in his cowboy boots - listening to country music in his little honda civic.
i told him so, as we walked thorough the sliding doors & said, "it's just the same as back then..."
"Only different." He added.
