Fifteen years ago, I was sitting in Mark's kitchen.  To say I was annoyed with him would be a gross understatement.  We were back from ushering a Holly Near concert, where one of the main goals was for me to have a hot one night hookup.

He's a terrible wingman.

His weirdo roommate had just gotten off work and was having a beer.  We'd met before, but I hadn't really paid attention to him, because I always came specifically to see Mark.

[I found out later that he was both attracted to and intimidated as hell by me.  Mark had told him--before he even signed the lease- -and that he was going to really like me, because "she's bi and kinky and pagan.  And she is such a strong feminist."  Way to out me, dude?]

Kent could tell I was one more "well, I thought she was too old for you" away from strangling Mark with my bare hands.  (Even greater irony:  Kent's thirteen years older than I am)  He offered me a beer and a seat, and we started talking.  We started swapping food service horror stories, and Mark fled the scene.

Nothing scares a civilian--especially a vegetarian one--like true tales of life in food service.  :)

We moved from food service to music and discovered a mutual love of David Bowie.

Then he asked me if he could touch my hair.

And the rest is history.

Fifteen years, my social media avoidant love.  It hasn't always been easy, or pretty, but here we are.  And now you're MY weirdo housemate.  <3  Happy hookup-aversay.
