One day after athletics practice I asked Lynda if she would go around with me. After days asking friends advice on how to seal the deal and I’d been led to believe that, if she said yes, we’d be hitched.
I knew how I felt about her but was uncertain whether my feelings were reciprocated beyond her laughing at some of my jokes.
Nonetheless, I waited till she had her belongings in her hands and was literally running to meet her mother’s car before I asked her. When she said yes I couldn’t believe it.
