So…I met someone. It’s actually a funny story how we met. I went grocery shopping at a market near my new home for the ingredients to an elaborate meal I was planning on making for my house party. I love gourmet food, and one of my hobbies is cooking, and I also like antique lighting fixtures but anyways, so I was kind of going all out with this meal. I bought the most expensive cheeses I could find in this quaint market; delicious fresh salmon, shrimp, and crab; arugula salad with basil and almond slivers; top-shelf wine; quinoa and grapes for my quinoa grape specialty salad; and rich dark chocolate mousse.
While I was in the aisle where I was looking for the ingredients for the dark chocolate mousse, I noticed this guy standing not too far away from me looking at some of the other decadent desserts. I couldn’t make up mind about what I wanted for the mousse, so I was standing there for a pretty long time. Then I suddenly noticed him looking at me every so often. Once, out of the corner of my eye, I even saw him move his mouth as if he was about to say something, but then he stopped shortly. I picked out some pure cacao, and when I moved to place it in my basket, I accidentally dropped it.
This guy immediately was right by my side picking it up and handing it to me with the most gorgeously handsome smile I think I’ve ever seen. He was about 6’5” and had dark curly brown hair and emerald green eyes.
“What are you making with this?” he asked. I started walking down the aisle to move on with my shopping and I answered, “Oh, just some dark chocolate homemade mousse.”
“That sounds delicious.”
“Uh huh.” I muttered. He then kept the conversation going, but not in an awkward way, and followed me around the entire store until I was finished with my shopping.
To make a long story short, he asked me out at the checkout under that bright lights and I said yes!
