All through high school I was able to maintain straight-A grades – UNTIL…
I was in love!
Head over heels – captivated – totally consumed – in love!
As was she with me!
She was one year older that me.
At first I was able to date and maintain my grades, but eventually it caught up with me.
The fateful day came when I brought home my report card and it had all A’s – and 2 B’s!
I was grounded for 6 weeks – no car – no dating – until the next report card showed all A’s.
She had started college nearby and during those 6 weeks she found someone else.
My love of a lifetime – was gone with the wind!
P.S. Our twin boys might have wondered why I never made a big deal about their grades.
Now they know.
