It was October 2010. At the end of our very first date, April asked if she could plan a surprise date. I was a little skeptical, but she didn't appear to be an axe murder so I said, "Sure!" April called me midweek and instructed me to bring a flashlight. She gave me her address and said be at my house by 7. Flashlights? In the middle of fall? That is it. My life is over.
