15 YEARS ago I saw this beautiful girlacross the street in a white skirt talking to her friend. I almost dropped my ice cream sandwich( that’s not a joke) I was so struck by her beauty. I didn’t have the courage to go and talk to her because I have ZERO game. So I just said, no biggie just another gorgeous girl in LA. But for some weird reason I couldn’t get her out of my head. Even the next day just picturing her face was making me smile. THE very next night I luckily saw the friend she was talking to and immediately went to her and asked “who was your friend in the white skirt you were talking to last night.” Thankfully she didn’t run away and told me “that’s My friend Narsis” I said well I think she’s gorgeous here’s my number please tell her to call me.” Thank God 2 weeks later I got a call from the love of my life. Happy anniversary @narsisattar#mylove
