I learned on our first date she really had yet to experience any having been here barely two months.So, what better way to introduce her but to take her to a rodeo! I decided to surprise her by not telling her I was entered into two events – bull riding and roping.
At the end of the second week encountering her repeatedly in the library in the same reading area, she asked me if I would like to accompany her to the coffee shop at the student union.She briefly looked at me and then back down at her book, then her head almost comically snapped back up to take a longer harder look at me, which is not an uncommon reaction as I am six foot seven with rugged looks and rangy features. Several friends have stated I would have made a good model for the “Marlboro Man” cigarette advertisements (although I do not smoke or dip! We caught each other several times looking at each other that first time.Small talk initially began the second time we saw each other.) She as well as her family are enamored of Western Americana.Later, she explained to me that there were many European and Asian social groups in several nations that are solely formed for the interest in the American West, Cowboys & Indians, Western Swing music, films and television shows. Like others, I was attracted to her the first time I saw her, which was in the library where I went to do some studying.
