My other friends in the rodeo knew I was on a special date and let the rodeo announcer know as well who was a friend of theirs.
I became consternated when I looked up and saw my good friends in the announcer booth.
She briefly looked at me and then back down at her book, then her head almost comically snapped back up to take a longer harder look at me, which is not an uncommon reaction as I am six foot seven with rugged looks and rangy features. Several friends have stated I would have made a good model for the “Marlboro Man” cigarette advertisements (although I do not smoke or dip! We caught each other several times looking at each other that first time.
Over the course of the week and following week I would see her in the same section of the library where I studied where she was doing the same.The announcer started off telling about the next bull coming out.
