We met on the bus.
Two hours later he was bringing my Sonic's Cherry Slushie from the food court and it never occurred to me that he was infatuated until he asked my age - I had to show him my ID to prove I was twenty-eight and even then he said it was a pretty damn good forgery and asked where he could get one.
"How old are you," the possible numbers raced through my mind and when he told me I felt like it was some sin just standing with him on the promenade, I could hear the bars clanking into place.
After I made it clear we could only be friends we joined each other's Facebook and I found great pleasure referring to him as Hamtaro - he'd been my gopher all day but looked more like a fluffy hamster - which riled him up every time, "Hammy-hammy ham-ham hammy-hammy ham ham Hamtaro, Hamtaro".
Over the next two years we both found love, lost it, he moved away, returned, and yesterday he sent a message, "Having a boyfriend living in California doesn't seem much fun. I work in a kiosk so I'm broke a lot, but I'm a good man, devoted, and can show you a VERY good time," and when I didn't respond he added, "I'm twenty now."
