~I woke up feeling really good though, like I had really met with him, in real life. Our relationship was interesting, to say the least. It started when I was 15, he was 19. I still can't believe my mom agreed to let me 'date' him. He worked @ the pizza place next door to the dog grooming shop where I washed dogs on Saturdays (by the way, I LOVED that job).
~I often think about him, it seems he crosses my mind once a week or so.
~Over time and distance, we just lost touch. He joined the Marines, wrote me letters from wherever he was stationed and even called me from Okinawa (total shock). When he came home on leave he came to visit me @ the photo shop where I was working @ the time (now 21 years old). That was the last time I saw him. There really wasn't any closure either, he said he was going up north to visit his parents and would stop back by on his way 'out' - that never happened.
~I believe that he is now working in Thousand Pines (?), CA as a Deputy Sheriff, although I could be wrong. I wish I could find him on Facebook but I think his profession keeps him from signing up there.
~ETA: The city is actually 29 Palms....all those tree names just confuse me.
~Anyway, the dream was a reunion of sorts, at least that is how it felt when I woke up.
~I wonder how he's doing. Of course I'll be thinking about him all day now. Ugh!!
