D, as all his friends call him, was not even supposed to be at the dinner. He was only stopping by to bring the wine as he had an important work meeting to go to. I had just moved into town and was happy to be eating with my old college roomate.
But when Darrick got there I had a chance to help him bring everything in and we started chatting. Seconds turned to minutes and those minutes turned to him missing his meeting. His business partner was understanding and is going to be the best man at our wedding. :)
Darrick and I sat next to each other during dinner and it seemed like the conversation never stopped. We had so much in common and it quickly became the start to what will be a wonderful life together.
