I’ll start by saying that my 19 year old son suggested this topic for a post. I simply asked if he had any story ideas, and he came up with this family legend.
I had not ridden a school bus to get to school until our family moved to a new town in the middle of my sophomore year in high school. At 15, it was daunting to think about making new friends and fitting in at a new school. I walked to the bus stop on a busy, suburban street. I was 5'2" tall, weighed 105 lbs., was a gymnast and a dancer, and had a spectacular rear view. I had a full head of curly hair, too.
In the spring of my sophomore year, I was introduced to Dirk at a small party. Our hosts were plotting to fix us up because we were all friends and they thought it would be cool if we were 2 couples. They contrived a set of circumstances so that Dirk had to drive me home. He was apparently on to their plan and reluctantly agreed to drive me home. Thus began our summer romance. He took me out on some proper dates and we hit it off.
One night Dirk confessed that his route to work included driving down the busy road where I walked to the bus stop each morning. Being a healthy 19 year old man meant he was in the habit of leering at my sexy ass when he drove past. He admitted this fact. Now, we were dating.
We went on to be married 8 years later. My son was always amused by the story of how his dad first spotted his mother walking to the bus from the rear. I asked him why he thought this would be an interesting story. He replied that if I used “nice ass” in the title that people would be very curious about what was so nice about said ass, and it was interesting that my ass was what brought his parents together in a way.
Thank you for reading. :)
