We’ve mentioned several times in the blog that Snake remembers clearly the moment that we met in high school. I was working on lights for the drama performance and he was touring the theatre to see if he wanted to take the class.
I spoke to him in the hall a few days later and, well, the rest is history.
The funny thing is that I actually had noticed him almost two years before except I never knew it was him. It was Halloween of our sophomore year, I was standing upstairs with my then boyfriend and other friends and this incredibly tall guy walked by. He was dressed similar to the costume in the photo (of course, I can’t find the actual photo that we have) except you couldn’t see his face at all.
It was an awesome costume and it really caught my eye. It was years later when we came across the photo that I realized that he was him. How do I know it was him? I mean, it is a pretty common costume.
Number one, his costumes were always just a step above the normal ones. Halloween was a big deal in his family. Number two, he had a look and walk that I can see when I look back. Number three, I remember some of the people he was with then and they were definitely there.
Pretty crazy coincidence…But even more crazy one? My uncle had an office in Denver when I was little that was on a street that is actually Snake’s last name. I guess it was kismet or something!
