FYI: I met Mikey during the first month that I got to my squadron in Vegas. We both remember that first day, but have different ways of telling it. His is probably the truer version though. He says he walked into the squadron to sign out for his flight (we called them "missions"). I remember looking up and seeing him walk through the door because the sunlight was coming in right over his head and it was too much for me...I was hungover. I thought he was cute, but I didn't really pay him any mind. He says he said hello to me and that I didn't respond. I don't believe this to be true for a second, because that's just plain rude! Although my friend Steph will argue all day that I was an "asshole" back then, partially due to the fact that I was always hungover. So maybe he's telling the truth. Anyway, he says he asked me what he needed to do to be good to fly (I kept track of flying currencies and made sure that no aircrew flew if they had tasks to accomplish prior to flight). According to Mikey, I didn't even answer him. I simply glanced only at his name tag, spun around in my swivel chair, and highlighted his name and information. Then I went back to what I was doing, all without looking up or saying a word. He said "thank you" and went on with his bizz. The funny thing is we ended up hanging out often because of all our mutual friends, like Purdie and Pickett. I didn't even call him Mikey; I called him by his last name. One thing however, I always thought he was a cutie pie.
During this time I had a boyfriend whom I met at work. He was originally from California, so during our year of dating I got to visit Cali about 4 times. I went to San Francisco (twice--my favorite!), Sacramento, San Diego, Escalon (where he was from) and a few surrounding cities. I just can't believe I forgot to wear a flower in my hair while in San Fran. :(
