Fanning The Flames Of Romance

| Miami, FL, USA | Romantic | August 16, 2012

(I have an overnight layover in Miami and decide to kill some time at a bar. A guy sits next to me and we strike up a conversation.)

Guy: “So, what do you do?”

Me: “I’m a vet student. I’m actually on my way back to school for the spring semester.”

Guy: “Our jobs are similar! I throw rocks at small woodland creatures that are on fire.”

Me: “What?! That’s horrible! That’s the opposite of what I do!”

Guy: “Well, I am a firefighter. We have to kill anything on fire so it doesn’t spread.”

Me: “That’s still so sad! Why would you tell me this within minutes of meeting me and learning that my passion is helping animals?”

Guy: “I don’t know… I didn’t think this through…”

(Despite what he said, we ended up talking until 3 am, and I gave him my number. This month, we celebrate our 8 month anniversary!)
