One day in junior high, I went to the movies. I sat with friends behind a row of boys from our class. The boy in front of me turned around and planted a kiss on me.

初中的时候,有一天我去看电影。我和朋友们一起,坐在班上男生们的后面。我前面的男生转过身,亲了我一下。

When I got home, my parents asked me about the movie. I drew a blank. I couldn’t remember anything after the kiss.

回家后,爸妈问我电影怎么样的时候,我脑袋里一片空白,被亲之后的事情我都不记得了。

I’ve been married to that boy for 41 years.

现在,我已经和那个男生结婚41年了。

My boyfriend of three weeks was helping my roommate and me move back to college for our senior year.

升大四的时候,交往了3周的男朋友帮我和我室友搬家回学校。

While unpacking, I listed all the things I loved about my new apartment: “I love my new room, I love my bathroom, I love our kitchen, I love our living room, I love my boyfriend …”

拆封行李的时候,我列了下新公寓里自己喜欢的东西:“我喜欢新房间,我喜欢浴室,我喜欢厨房,我喜欢客厅,我喜欢我的男朋友……”

As soon as I’d uttered those words, I wanted to stuff them back into my mouth. My beau just laughed, and we both knew that what I’d said was true.

说出这些话的瞬间,我就想把它们塞进嘴里。男朋友只是笑了笑,同时,我们也知道我说的都是事实。

In the 14 years that we went from classmates tobest friends, I never once consciously thought of him as a lover.

14年间,我们从同学变成了挚友,我从来都没想过要把他当成恋人。

I tried remembering the exact moment I’d fallen for him by reliving all those moments that had made us laugh, fight, cry, and ache for each other. Try as I might, I could not recall it.

我努力回想爱上他的那个瞬间,回想那些一起欢笑,一起奋斗,一起哭泣,以及需要彼此的时刻。我尽力了,可还是想不起来。

Then it came to me on our wedding day. I had been in love with him all along.

然后,婚礼那天,我才意识到,原来我一直都爱着他。

I was in the hospital having my tonsils removed. The guy was going to pick me up after he got off work, at 5 p.m. But I was discharged early, at 3:15, and the nurse asked if someone would be picking me up.

我在医院做扁桃体切除手术。他下班后要来接我,约的5点。可是,我3点15就做完了,于是护士问有没有人来接我。

Just then, it hit me.

就在这时,我突然明白了。

“Yes, my boyfriend,” I said, smiling. “He isn’t supposed to be here until five, but he won’t be able to wait that long. He’ll get here early because he’ll be worried about me.”

“有的,我男朋友来接我,”我笑着回答,“说好5点来的,可他等不了那么久。他会早点来接我的,因为他很担心我。”

Sure enough, he was there 15 minutes later.

果然,15分钟后他就来了。

It was during a painful argument.

Previous dates brought me red roses, candy,even jewelry.
