We didn't kiss that first night, but we danced and danced and danced. The entire night he kept waiting to request a song from the DJ that was tucked in the corner of the little bar. He never did get to make a request. Later I asked him what song he would have asked for.
"Come A Little Closer, by Dierks Bentley," he said.
If you know that song, you know it's swoony.
So this year, in celebration of our established tradition - and also for his birthday, I just bought tickets to go see this guy.
