Admiral's Log 2...
I fell in love with Sar at first sight. I didn't know that at the time but we were wed 4 months after we met and each day I was with her, it became clearer and clearer that I wanted her in my life for the long term. She was visiting DC at the time we met. Came in from Chicago as a hired entertainer. She was about to graduate from college and had a few weeks holiday, taking the opportunity to earn a few bucks. She was a baby - not quite 20 years old - 10 years my junior.
Did I tell you I loved her on sight?
She stayed in DC for a week and I wrangled time away to spend it with her. Met her for breakfast each day, took her all over DC and Maryland and Virginia and only took her back to her friend's apartment late at night. She ate all day - EVERY day. Never knew anyone that could eat as much as she did. I don't know where she put it - still don't - could pick her up with one hand - still can. I kept telling her she needed to get checked out for tapeworms. I think that's when she started telling me I was uncouth.
In case I neglected to mention it - I loved her right away.
The 2nd or 3rd night we were together - we were walking along the Reflecting Pool and I had my arm around her shoulder. We stopped and I pulled her in close to kiss her. I had been trying to kiss her since we met. She pushed me away and I told her I was going to spank her if she didn't let me kiss her. Her eyes got wide and she stared at me. I reached for her again. Sar raised her arm and drew it back to push me away or maybe slap me - not sure. I gave her bottom a couple of good hard swats and before she could yell I hugged her tight and kissed her properly. I thank the good Lord she kissed me back. Once I started kissing her I damn sure didn't want to stop. She had the sweetest mouth - still does.
Gotta tell you - my heart was hers from the first moment.
I didn't want to let her go back to Chicago. We had 7 great days together, a few sweet nights, and I wanted more. She kissed me goodbye and said she'd send me a postcard. She laughed when I showed up on her doorstep in Chicago the next day. We spent 2 weeks together - at her place.
Sar had 3 stray cats - Nina, Pinta, (Santa) Marie - all male. When she danced for me, they'd stand on their hind legs and dance too. When I remarked that I didn't see any cat food in her kitchen, she looked at me like I had grown a second head. They ate what Sar ate - soft boiled eggs, muffins with jam, mushroom soup, grilled cheese sandwiches, ice cream, burgers, onion rings, Twinkies, peanut butter, macaroni and cheese, whatever Sar ate - except chocolate. Sar doesn't share chocolate. All 3 cats were over 18 years old when they died of old age.
She had a couple of weeks before graduation so I threatened to kidnap her and take her back to DC with me if she wouldn't come willingly. She only agreed to go when I started to warm her butt. I was worried she'd change her mind so I gave her just a few minutes to throw some things in a bag. We had to take the damn cats with us. I had a small place in Virginia and those 2 weeks pretty much cemented it for me.
I told her I loved her. She didn't believe me. I told her again and again. She still didn't believe me. I spanked her until she said she believed me. In those two weeks, the REAL Sar peeked through her pretty lashes loud and clear. I was in love with a birbantella, an imp. I knew then and there my life was gonna be a whirlwind.
Just to be sure you know - I loved her from day 1 and love her even more all these years later.
