Exactly 6 months ago today, Justin invited me to sneak into that little movie theater room at Webster U to watch our mutual favorite movie, The Room.
Afterwards, we stopped by Weber’s for a drink. 3 drinks later, he asked me if I’d like to go out again. So today is sort of our 6 month anniversary? Hooray! I realize this is incredibly cheesy, but it’s important to note for 3 reasons:
1. It’s been almost a year since I centered my birthday party around The Room and had one of the best birthdays ever.
2. Janet and Courtney bragged about my party to Justin, who then asked me, “What is The Room?” This was our first conversation ever and apparently sparked his crush on me. Thanks, The Room.
3. It has been almost 15 years since I had a decent 6 month anniversary:
I don’t know if I ever told you guys what happened with me and Pat, but the gist is this – we hung out almost every day for 6 months. People would refer to him as my boyfriend or me as his girlfriend and he wouldn’t flinch. However, after 6 months I needed clarification: “AM I your girlfriend?” He replied, “I don’t know, we haven’t talked about it yet.” Then he avoided me for like two weeks. I called him out on this and we “broke up”.
Brian and I got together in London when I technically still had a boyfriend back home, so during our 6 month “anniversary” I was in another state, probably hanging out with my actual boyfriend.
THAT boyfriend got drunk and passed out on our 6 month anniversary, AS USUALLY.
In fact, the only decent 6 month anniversary I’ve ever had was during my first long relationship ever… when I was 16. Mark and I celebrated by going out to the movies – National Lampoon’s Vegas Vacation. Romance!
SO I AM TAKING THIS SIX MONTH ANNIVERSARY AND OWNING IT, DAMMIT. In honor of our happiness and the movie that brought us together, I will spend the whole day punctuating each sentence with a Tommy Wiseau laugh:
