I had lunch with one of my first boyfriends yesterday. Ross and I dated 10 years ago now, which is a terrifying thought. I can't believe I have been dating for more than a decade! Oh dear. Anyway, we had lunch yesterday with his current girlfriend and his brother. It was pretty entertaining. Jordan and Kat (the brother and girlfriend respectively) drank a huge pitcher of margaritas, so they were a little trashed. The four of us together ate quite a lot of fake Wisconsin Mexican food. Ross is a sweetheart. He plays upright bass professionally and is contemplating physics graduate school. It always makes me laugh to spend time with him. We were so young when we dated -- I have really funny memories. He was really in to being romantic, so on every month anniversary we would drive out to Governor's Island and have a picnic. It was almost invariably a disaster. One month I fell through the ice in to the lake. A couple months later we had a mini-mudslide which left us covered in mud from head to toe. We always had fun though. He's a really good guy. I got mono that year and was sick for 4 weeks. Ross spent his entire spring break sitting on the sofa with me, covering me in blankets and trying to teach me to play video games. I was pretty miserable, but we still had a good time!
