And They Meet
The first thing I remember about my sister-in-law Kimmie was from my brother. One of his friends told me, “Phil had a date!” This was NOT an everyday occurrence. We are not a super communicative family, so I expect to be in the dark about these things. Of course, I called Phil immediately to get the dish.
“She has the most beautiful eyes,” he told me. I knew at that moment that he was toast!
Phil arranged for me to meet Kimmie for the first time at Benihana with some mutual friends – as a buffer, I think, in case we didn’t get along. He was very smart about that. Yummy food and fun friends put me in a good mood. Not that I needed to be in a good mood to love Kimmie.
And Phil was right. She had beautiful eyes. And I was right. He was toast. Or better put, he had found his soulmate.
