Our Story: How We Met

July 7th will be Brendon's and my 4 year anniversary! And it occurred to me that in all the time I've had this blog, I've never shared how we met - our story! So here it is.

Our Story
I clearly remember standing at the back of the student section at on of our high school football games, where I was looking for a friend. That's when a guy on crutches came up and started talking to me. I was polite and entertained a conversation with him. But soon this guy became too chatty, and I really just wanted to find my friend. So I started to make a look. (If you know me in real life, you know that I am terrible and hiding how I feel. My face says it all.) It was a look that said, Okay, I'm done talking to you. Why are you still talking to me? And who are you anyway?

Like I said, my face said it all. The guy quickly picked up on this and said, "I'm Brendon. I'm in your math class."

Feeling sorry for the guy, but certain he didn't know what he was talking about, I said, "Nooo. You're definitely not in my math class."

"Wilkes? First period?"

Stunned. "Hm. Well, yes, I am in that class, but you're definitely not in it."

Brendon was feeling confident. "I am in your math class... I sit right behind you."

And you can imagine that I was now feeling really awkward and squirmish. "Nooo. You definitely don't. {So-and-so} sits behind me."

Brendon just looked puzzled. "Don't you sit next to Rachel?"

Suddenly it clicked. And I got fired up. "Ohmygoodness! You think I'm Blakely." (Note: Blakely has been one of my best friends since we were 8 years old, and when we were young, people would get us mixed up.)

Now Brendon was really confused. "Well, who are you?"

"I'm Ashleigh!"


More of our story to come.
