Trouble Getting It Up: A Christmas True Love Story

We couldn’t get it up! No matter how hard we tried, no matter what we did, it kept flopping one way, flopping another, falling one way, falling another. It was getting really late that night, so he said he would come over again the next night. I thought, yeah right. This guy is not coming back.

He said that the first time he saw me was when I was taking a dip in our apartment building’s pool. He came out and said hi, and I didn’t think anything of it. After a while, we became friends and it was Christmas time. I needed help getting my Christmas tree, and he gladly obliged. We brought a beautiful tree into my apartment and then got to work getting it into the stand. For some reason no matter what we did, we couldn’t get the tree up!

He did come back the next night and told me he had a dream about returning the tree to get a better one. That was exactly what we did, and we were laughing the whole way to the Christmas tree lot and back. We got a beautiful tree that did stay straight in the stand. We got it up! More sparks flew, and that was how my relationship with my husband began.

This is a friend’s true story as told by M.B.
