The official prompt for the day wasn’t working for me, so I chose to use the one from Writer’s Digest, The First (blank).
The First Time I Ever Laid Eyes on You I couldn’t not notice you in your Andean striped bell-bottoms and floral shirt and your long sideburns when we went around the room introducing ourselves you said you were Greg and you were gregarious your laugh was infectious afterward, some of us planned to meet at Friendly’s for an ice cream cone you invited me to come with you I’d just gotten my first car and wanted to drive myself but you insisted your car’s passenger side door didn’t latch so you tied it to the steering wheel with a length of rope and told me I had to sit right next to you on the bench seat so I wouldn’t fall out not the most auspicious of beginnings but within two years we were married and we remain so 47 years later
I love the lines:
“and you were gregarious
your laugh was infectious”
