Smile and Nod

Craig called and asked me for some advice. He asked how important was it to get married. I gave him my opinion that it is the most important thing that you can do in your life. Not long after that we were notified that Craig and Brina Luna were to be wed. We decide to make a trip to Utah to meet Brina Luna.

In our correspondence and informal communication I had come to the conclusion that I like Brina. She said, "10 minutes early is just in time". I heartily approved of her before I met her.

We decided that we would drive out to Utah and fly home, leaving the Saturn with Craig. The trip was arduous. We had decided that we would drive straight through. It is a 24 hour drive. We were going to share the driving responsibilities and split the time at the wheel. That did not work out too well. Jeanette struggled to stay awake, so I drove most of the way there.

When we arrived we were pleased. I got to rest. We instantly loved her.

I don't remember most of the details of the meeting, but I do remember going to eat at The Outback. We had several conversations going and I was trying to tell Craig something. Arlo started laughing. I wondered what was the joke. Arlo informed me that Brina told Craig to smile and nod.

Now when somebody smiles and nods at me I have to make sure that they really are listening.


  1. Sounds about right. I don't remember the details very well either. This must be why we are to keep journals. I remember loving her instantly too.


Please feel free to comment. Be nice.
