In the Navy
Valentine's Day. I hadn't been able to get ahold of him for several days and, in typical teen drama queen fashion, I had gone overboard: leaving songs on his answering machine, etc... He called and asked me out to lunch for Valentine's Day. Over lunch he asked me if I would ever consider marrying for money and revealed that he'd been incommunicado the last few days because he was busy running errands: getting a blood test, applying for a marriage license, etc... He was in the Navy and was planning on marrying "a friend" so he could get an increase in pay. He told me it didn't have to change things between us; I thought otherwise!
