This July marks my one-year anniversary as a contributor to the awesome collaborative blog Hooray Collective, where I write every 30th of the month. On this blog, I’ve been sharing most of my posts there in my weekly Link Love roundups, but I’m pretty dang proud of some of my writing over at HC so I’m going to be showcasing my posts there more prominently on my blog. Here’s what I wrote for this month.
We fell into each other’s lives that night, so quickly, so seamlessly, it was like we had always known we’d meet.
“I’m T,” you said.
“I’m A,” I responded.
You asked where I was from that night, making a joke about me possibly working for the White House. I asked where you were from and I despaired at the fact that your hockey team was the Canucks.
It was the Fourth of July that night, so you wished me a happy Independence Day and I lifted my drink to a toast made in the name of freedom.
We were with other people that night, me with my girlfriends and you with your ragtag band of fun-loving bros. The six of us began our night together, swapping stories and laughter and drinks, as the best of nights often entail.
