Blind Date

Twenty one years ago, Lou and I went on a blind date. We had dinner at a Chinese restaurant followed by a folk music concert at a fancy coffee shop in Westboro, Massachusetts.

Lou was the smartest, most charming guy I had ever dated. Also the first guy who made more money than me. Since we were both in computers, we had a lot in common.

I had a great time. But after that first date, he threw away my phone number. These days, he claims it was an accident.

Anyway we are hanging out today.

I am getting email from Duke to set up all my appointments.

On Valentine's Day, I'll go in the morning for labwork (requires fasting). Then I'll go to work for a few hours. And I'll finally head back to Duke in the afternoon for a CT Scan to get the official measurement of how much cancer there is before the clinical trial starts.

Oh no, he didn't find my number! I called him!

I wasn't sure I wanted to actually keep dating him, but I liked him a lot and wanted to be friends. Of course, my opinion changed dramatically after our first kiss...
