Caitlin and Scott
How We Met
Scott and I lived in the same neighborhood and went to the same neighborhood bars. It was a Thursday night so everyone was at “flip night” at a local country bar. I saw scott wearing a tshirt with the name of a neighborhood pool where I grew up. I went up to him and asked him if he was from there and he sarcastically said no. Not knowing what to do I turned back around to my friends. Scott came back up to me after and started talking to me. He then asked if I wanted a drink (me thinking I got myself a free rum and diet I was all excited) until I saw he got me a beer. We continued talking and found out we grew up in the same neighborhood knew some of the same people. Scott got my number that night but I didn’t get his so I figured I would never see him again. Luckily Scott decided to text me… over a week later but he did and I’m sure glad he did :)
How He Asked
I’m a 2nd grade teacher and it was the Tuesday before Thanksgiving break. I was counting down the minutes until the day was over not knowing what was about to happen. It was the end of the day and I dropped my kids off at PE and was hanging out with my coworker. My assistant principal comes in and tells me he needs help with a student. I thought it was weird but got up to go help. I walk into the gym and see my kids holding posters… in my head I’m wondering what they are learning about in PE. I never even looked at the posters because I was looking for a student. When I finally get into the gym I turn to my right and see my sisters and then Scott. I immediately ask what is going on and start backing up. Scott starts to walk towards me and get on one knee as I continue to say what are you doing. I’m not really sure what happened after that ..all I remember is Scott asking me to say yes and my class, the gym teacher, and my assistant principal screaming and running around.
