A Forbidden Love – Slice of Life Sunday

Posted by adamswife on April 16, 2008

Slice of Life Sunday is a meme dedicated to preserving the accounts of events cut out of the lives of average people just like you from all over the word.  Like having ice cream with your pie, there is more to this meme than meets the eye – it’s a meme a` la mode!

When I was in high school I studied German.  For two years in German class I had a crush on the guy who sat across the aisle from me:  John.  John was tall and dark and to my eye handsome.  He was also very smart.  All the things I found most attractive.  And he had deep, dark brown eyes.  But John is not the object of this forbidden love.

The second year I studied German our teacher was a young man, fresh from college and single.  There was just something about him.  John was still there, still making my heart go pitty-pat, but there was just something about Herr Eborn that I could not resist.  He was young enough that he still blushed very nicely on occasion.  I found that rather endearing.  There were times he seemed to be flirting with one or another of the girls in the class.  I suffered such pangs of jealousy.  Didn’t he know I was the smartest girl in the class?  I had the best grades?  My accent was nearly flawless and my grammar perfect?  How could he be attracted to someone else?  I never knew just what there was about Herr Eborn.  After all, John was my first loyalty  – wasn’t he?  Several years later I found out that Mrs. Eborn (he got married during the summer after that year) was rather jealous of one of her husband’s students – me!  Could it be?  Was the irresistible attraction due to that greatest of charms?  Someone who found me attractive and, perhaps, irresistible?  Why didn’t he wait for me?  One of life’s mysteries. 😉

A Memoir

Posted by adamswife on March 28, 2008

Zazzy has invited all who visit her blog to post a “six-word memoir.” I have been struggling to find the right six words. I have found 4 words and 8 words, even 5 words, but 6 words just seems to escape me. Perhaps these will do.

Daughter, mother, wife, lover, sister, friend

These six pretty well tell the story of my life – that’s what a memoir is supposed to do, is it not?

Like Zazzy, I invite all who would like to participate in the meme to do so. And leave me a note so my readers and I can come and visit you.
