“Aunt Flow”

best of surprising

The first night I slept over I got my period and bled all over his white sheets. I was mortified. He said “No biggie, that’s what detergent is for,” and made me breakfast.

— Red

Postscript: We were together for a while but it didn’t work out. He’ still a great guy though. No hard feelings.

“Everlasting Gobstopper”

best of strange

I was having a bad day at work and muttered “Strike that, reverse it,” from Willy Wonka. He heard me as he walked by and said “Willy Wonka is my favorite movie.”

I said “Me too.”

He said “I think I have to marry you.”

— Que Bella

Postscript: We dated for 10 years but had to end it because we were too much alike. It was like the Seinfeld episode with Jerry and Janeane Garafolo.

“Gag reflex”

best of strange

He was a boy that played in a church band, was a year older and amazing. I’d seen him at church all the time and thought he so cute. We were miraculously in the same biology class and my heart just turned over when as we were dissecting a pig he said “Smile , it stops the gag reflex.” And then proceeded to smile . No words could be sweeter. No expression more beautiful. No sense of love has overcome me like this.


Postscript: He still doesn’t know who I am. Well, not really anyway. But he’s amazing no matter. My hope is in the idea of one day….


“Old and Fat”

best of sweet

I instantly felt a connection and was completely attracted to her when we met in high school. She undeniably became my best friend. All through high school we dated other people, but every time we would talk I would feel the connection. My junior year of high school, I said to her, “We are going to grow old and fat together, watch.” She told me that she knows we will, and kept reminding me that we will ever since then.


Postscript: We didn’t actually start dating until 2 years after high school due to minimal contact. But, we have been dating for over a year now and are still going strong. She still is my best friend. She is the the girl that I am undoubtedly in love with. And yes, we still plan on growing old and fat together.
