10 Years

We were friends. We talked all the time. It was not going anywhere. Then one night things changed. Our lives where never the same after that. One thing led to another and here we are ten years later.


This is how your mother and I started dating...


We already talked on the phone or the "key-up" (Nextel 2-way radios) every day like clockwork. I hit her up as soon as the 6 train came up for air after Hunts Point Avenue. I knew she would be getting into work as I was finally getting home after a long day. Things went on like that for months. Never did make plans to hang out. We enjoyed talking to each other but there seemed to be no spark. Over the phone it was hard to gauge what was going on. 


One Friday night...


I was at home with nothing to do. Come to think of it a lot of my Friday nights were like that. I would come home from work and hardly have much to do if there was no one on the block. On this particular night I had nothing to do, did not feel like working on my music, there was nothing on TV. I was half asleep when my phone went off. It was your mother. After some small talk she asked me what I was doing. I said that I was falling asleep since I had nothing to do and then...


She asked me if I wanted to hang out. I stammered, stuttered and said "hell yeah!"


I rushed! Left my house like I stole something. I looked like hell. Wide-leg jeans and pumas. What the hell was I thinking? Your mother though saw something in me. Lucky me. Her night wasn't going as she planned, I turned out to be a last minute backup plan. I am glad she called! We had a crazy night running around The Bronx. From Castle Hill to Jimmy's Bronx Cafe. From East to West. That night we started a journey that continues til this very day...
