We’ve all had encounters, scenes, sessions – whatever term you use – that went better than others, but have you ever had one so spectacular that even the date it occurred stands out in your mind?
Yeah, me neither. I’m not a date person. I didn’t remember the actual date that my husband and I first went out. I remember everything else though – how he held my hand, the callouses along his palm and the strength as it engulfed mine. I remember how his scruff felt along my cheek as we nuzzled and how his thigh muscles were rock hard. I remember my eyes being drawn to the package between those thighs and my curiosity warring with my common sense. I also remember the look of disbelief when I told my mom (at age 15) I had met the man I was going to marry.
My love, on the other hand, is a date person. He remembered the date he walked up to me while I sat with a gaggle of friends eating my lunch in the high school cafeteria and asked me to go skating with him. He also remembered the date of our first kiss. Dates matter to him. He calls them milestones and they’re important to him.
This morning he asked me, “Do you know what today is?”
Let’s see… Our wedding anniversary is next month. We just celebrated our daughter’s 27th birthday and our son’s 24th isn’t until July. Damn. Fresh out of ideas. Since I don’t lie to my guy, even if I know he’s going to be disappointed, I answered honestly. “No.”
“It’s the anniversary of our first ____________. Ten years.” (I’m leaving it blank because it has nothing to do with the point of this post. Use your imagination. Tee he he)
“Really? Wow!” While I didn’t remember the date, I sure remember my heart pounding in anticipation. I remember his hands were chilly and his voice was deep and commanding. I remember he didn’t use a ball gag because he wanted my feed back. I also remember we spent the hours afterward spooning and talking. I remember looking like a raccoon from the tears that fell down my cheek ruining my mascara. I remember the emotions that passed between us. It was a pivotal moment in our relationship and something I’ll never forget.
“Guess what we’re doing tonight…”
Holy shit! “I can’t wait.”
