Day 08 – “A song that reminds you of your first love.”
J. and I never actually dated in high school. We didn’t date at all. He was one of my dearest friends though.
He had this on-again-off-again girlfriend, M., all through high school who just hated me. She was so jealous of the affection J. and I had for one another and she just despised me for it (this is according to a mutual friend).
During one of their “off” periods J. invited me to go to a Bryan Adams concert with him. I was really excited. Not only would I get to see a great, Canadian artist, but J. and I would have our first date. Maybe, just maybe the mutual crush we had on each other (he had confessed this to me) would turn into something more.
Alas, it was not to be. M. found out he asked me and despite the fact that they were not together at the time she told him she wanted to go to the concert. He called me and told me he was taking M. instead.
Now every time I hear a Bryan Adams song I’m reminded of J.
