Tom is on his third champagne colored Suburban. You could say he doesn’t like change…
He started with a 1999, then had a 2005, and now has a 2013. I drove the 1999 before I got my minivan when our twins were zero-three years old. Tom had to drive my two door red Honda civic during this time.
I’m not the first Spanish teacher Tom dated. I’m the second. Red flag?
He told me he broke up with her after she tried on purses on the floor of Macy’s. What does that mean? He said she took all of the contents out of her current purse and then put the contents in all the purses she was considering buying to see how they would fit. Let’s just say I would just “eyeball it”. This leads me to believe she and I were quite different except for the Spanish teacher part.
My students really think this story is funny and they tell me not to bring Tom to school for fear he will leave me for another Spanish teacher. Thanks, students!
Tom and I both worked at Pizza Hut. I worked at one during college and he worked at one during high school. Remember when Pizza Hut was the move?
We share stories of just how much oil went in the bottom of a pan pizza. Tom’s sister said his jean jacket reeked of “Pizza Hut” and she could hardly ride in the same car with it/him.
Tom and I both went through a name change phase as children. He changed his name to “Thom” and I changed mine to “Aimee”. Ha!
My Dad was a pilot and we once got to use the company private plane to go to a family reunion. It was my Dad, Tom, my sisters and their husbands, and me. We had maybe 6 bags of chips and some appetizers for the get together. I am a nervous flyer and every little bump and noise puts me on high alert. We had just reached our cruising altitude when we heard a loud POP. I thought for sure we had blown something important to keep the aircraft in the air.
It was all the chips simultaneously popping open due to the pressure!
I hope this post made you smile! What’s a weird thing in your life?
