Today, 23rd May 2015, will be 14 years since London Scouser and I started officially stepping out. After months of him begging me to go out with him and me saying no but still spending an awful lot of time with him (who was I trying to kid?), I gave in to his nerdish charm.
It was a lovely sunny day, LS suggested we take a drive to Runnymeade and talk a walk by the river. It was so picturesque and none of my previous boyfriends had ever taken me on a date, let alone a romantic one! I was softening....
We walked up to the Harvester restaurant there and whilst we were waiting to be served, I heard music playing from the bar. London Scouser had heard it too and we both started singing the words "C'est la vie, c'est la vie, that's just the way it goes...." It was from one of my favourite albums, Now 9!! We looked at each other and said the next line at the same time, he said "That's life!" and I said what I thought the words were, "That's right!" I always thought of myself as the lyric guru! Oops, I made a boo boo there, he was laughing his head off! I never really put two and two together to work out what it was, seems a bit obvious now, duh! Needless to say, I have never lived it down.
Knowing how well he knew Now 9 must have been the clincher because later that evening after I had dropped him off to play footy with Flycasual, we were speaking on MSN messenger. He tried his luck again probably thinking he had wangled it with such a lovely day, and this time I said yes. We have been together ever since and I know now there is no one better suited for me. Even nerds can get the girl!
