  • We were at the bar.
    We ordered beers and had lots to talk about.

    Then you challenged me to drink a full pint of beer.
    I saw that glint in your eye and accepted that challenge.

    I psyched myself and started on the task, determined to do it, to win.
    I was doing a good job and was about to finish swallowing the last few mouthfuls when I happened to glance at you.

    You made a funny face.
    I laughed.

    The beer, somehow magically escaped from my throat and mouth,
    and made its way to your hand and trousers.

    Then the truth dawned on me.
    I had just spewed beer on my date.

    I was mortified.
    I looked at you to see your reaction.

    You were shocked at first.
    And then you laughed.

    There was that glint in your eye again.

    It was that moment when I started loving you.
