Ok, back to my story…. after receiving the “I like you” letter from Oscar, I was a mess! My heart melted and I didn’t know what to respond. What I had learned from my sisters and mom was that men like women that were hard to get. So, I was not about to make this easy for him nor was I ready to allow my mom to win at this point. Lol My response to his letter went something like; “I’m glad that you like me but I like you as a friend.” OMG, thanks for not giving up on me sweetie!!! Hahaha To make a long story short, my mother was patient and extremely smart. She sowed the seed and backed off. Would not ask me about Oscar nor would she talk about him. She did however; smile every time she saw a letter from him in the mail. The one thing that she did do was invite Oscar’s band to come perform in Ohio. This was very exciting for me, I wanted to see him and find out how I felt about him after writing to him for three months or so. I remember being a nervous wreck! But I didn’t show it, no way!!! Lol
*Tomorrow you will hear Oscar's side of the story...don't believe a word. lol
This picture is us at prom. The other two are all the letters & cards Oscar sent me and the first Valentine's Day gift he sent me.
