Um...he was the quiet one. He probably had lots of girlfriends...but just didn't know it. Of course, he wanted to know what I was thinking..since..after all..it was just the two of us that met up at the old diner.
"Oh..I dunno..maybe our kids would be tall." I nodded thinking it might be hard to reach up and kiss him..if..that were to ever happen. I was naturally plotting doubt.
Then he talked about how tiny he was when he was born. small enough for a show box. The doctors didn't expect him to be very big.
I nodded, thinking this was a far cry from chemistry or mathematics. Yet, maybe it wasn't.
I guess the study group kind of became a date. We drank lots of coffee, talked about our favorite poets and finally broke down and shared a slice of berry pie.
I'm not sure I want to find that study group, anyway.
