My Story And A Song, "Romeo & Juliet"

"Romeo & Juliet" by Dire Straits - I had never heard this song before 1992. I was on my way to a, well, I'll just call him a 'boyfriends' house to have one of those wonderful talks. The 'Where-is-this-going?' kind of thing. Yuck.

As he walks me from the front door into the kitchen I see a girl sitting at the table with a guy who has a guitar. The "guitar guy" looks at me and says "hi". (He's super-duper cute and has an acoustic guitar. Melt my heart.)  We had meet once before, while I was waiting for my bus and our mutual friend was waiting with me.  "Guitar Guy" shook my hand and I felt some kind of electric charge - I really did.

The four of us sit around the kitchen table not saying much. I'm totally confused because I thought it was understood I was coming over around this time to have a talk. Why is this other couple here?  The guy I came to see explains that he needs to learn how to play guitar for a role in a play, hence the friend with the guitar is here to teach him. Nice, I'm thinking. But why is his girlfriend here too?  At this point the girl says "Well, I should be going." And my guy says "I'll walk you out." I'm so-o-o confused!!! Why is my guy walking Guitar Guy's date to the door? Why isn't he.... ooh.... she isn't Guitar Guy's girlfriend. She's my guys girl. And she's obviously slept-over.

All of this is running around my brain when Guitar Guy starts playing a song. I hadn't heard it before but it's beautiful. When the song is over I smiled but he didn't even look at me. Or talk to me. It's just the two of us sitting there listening to the coffee pot grumble. What?!?

When my guy comes back I'm so appalled, embarrassed, and just so-o-o over this that I can't even look at him.  Guitar Guy starts playing another song, this one is "To Turn You On" by Roxy Music. THIS song I know. And at this point, I realize that Guitar Guy isn't just randomly choosing songs, he's playing to me. He's singing to me. My head, and heart started to explode!

And that's how Guitar Guy wooed me.  That first song he played? "Romeo & Juliet".

  2. Wonderful story, Ann!
    I remember you once telling me that when you shook his hand for the first time, you felt and electricity like you'd never felt before. :-)
    Sounds like he fell in love the moment he met you!

  6. No way- that is too sexy and romantic!!!!!!! Guitar-guy is a good choice. I was stupid enough to pick lead singer-guy. Who wouldn't acknowledge me at the gigs for fear of losing his female following. Nice.

  7. Dire Straits = one of my all time fave bands.

    I hope you dumped your guy for Guitar Guy. AFTER smacking him for having that girl there when you showed up. The loser.
