So a lot of you cats might be wondering how me and Gabe ended up together anyways. How do a 50 year old dude and a 25 year old chick end up in that kind of relationship?
Well, we never started out like that! We met at a local street festival where some friends introduced us. I brought my guitar that day, and we started rapping about the grooviest music out there. Turns out we dig the same stuff. And after that, we just kept running into each other! At the market, at festivals, at art shows; and we’d always end up talking. We have so much in common it’s crazy… almost scary. We like the same music, the same food, the same styles, the same places, whatever.
So we just started chilling together. We used to meet up in different places and just hang. First it was all about the music, since that was how we met, but pretty soon we realized we just had a blast being together. We’d grab a burger or some fries from a stand and just wander around the city, poking in all the weird little shops. We’d jump in his jalopy and go for a ride all over the county, exploring all the backroads, getting stuck on trails, and laughing our heads off. Both of us kind of knew that we had a thing for each other, but it wasn’t really something we talked about.
So this one, day, we were out cruising and Gabe said he had something to tell me. We pulled off the road on this little trail, and he put a song on the player. It was REO Speedwagon playing “I can’t fight this feeling anymore.” And Gabe asked if he could hold my hand while it played. I’ll just drop the song here so you cats can take a listen.
So in the end, Gabe didn’t say much… he didn’t have to. That song became “our song” and we listen to it almost every day. It wasn’t too long after that that we realized we were totally gone on each other, and we couldn’t live without each other. And after that we officially got together.
And we’ve been together now for two years, and we still can’t live without each other.
