Falling in Love

I was born in Columbus Ohio, in 1946. during my childhood, I had become a shy mixed-up human being. growing up in a constant poverty, made me a chronic worrier. i was the middle of three boys. i was boy trying to be a man.

In 1965 the world was changing rapidly around me. On my graduation day, i was ill prepared for the real world. Outside in the sea of people were my parents. I was filled with a stew of mixed emotions. Standing in the hot sun, waiting for the music to begin, I knew my world was about to change forever. I tried to hide my tears as we marched into the sun.

I decided to go to college. It didn't take me long to discover that college wasn't for dreamers, i dropped out. iwas falling off life's edge.I was searching for some meaning in my life. when I read an ad in the paper, I didn't know it would change my life. It wasn't long before I entered a computer school.

All of my life i was good at fooling people. I had convinced my teacher i was the smartest student in the class.he set me up for an interview with the State of ohio. Much to my surprise, I anded the job. I was on my way to a new life.

My coworkers were determined to set me up on a blind date. I finally gave in. I met Judy in a park for our blind date. It ended up into a another date. i was falling in love. We shared pizza in the rain and I poured my heart out to her. Three months later, I asked Judy to marry me. As soon as she said yes, I started working on my big surprise for her. Everydat i worked on my surprise at our future apartment.

She had to laugh when she saw hundreds of can goods everywhere. I had to prove that I could take care of her.
