It was a fluke of a storm and I came away from it with a new pet name, Snowflake. We caught sparkling flakes on our tongues and made angels in the white-covered yard. We were little characters in a snow globe, running around in a winter wonderland.
As far as first dates go, it was the best I’d ever had. Quick romantic glances and playful rolls in the fresh powder had me thinking this was it. I was done with the dating world forever. I’d found my man and he would be mine forever. That is, until I was playing around on a girlfriend’s OkCupid account , checking out her potential suiters, and saw a screen name that grabbed my attention, Snowflake81.
