Prince Charming (aka Scrub Guy) Part I
Once upon a time, in a very busy nursing program, a beautiful nurse-to-be ("looking for a spark") set off to find the perfect set of navy blue scrubs. She had to search high and low, but found a store that carried some that fit just right. While at the store, she noticed a potential prince charming. Hard at work, he made sure to check on his lovely clients with regularity. The beautiful nurse-to-be was enamored! She paid her bill, and left blushing. But that was the end. Or so she thought...

Another amazing nurse-in-training was looking for scrubs and came across the same scrub store! Although married, she thought very highly of this prince charming. After a conversation proving his intelligence, amicability, humor (and, of course, good looks), she decided to go a step further. She mentioned that she had some cute, single nursing student friends with whom she would like to set him up. Would he be willing to provide his contact information? His answer.........? Sure!
So, the following day in class, she approached me, to share the treasure she had obtained. After hearing how she got it, I immediately told "Looking for a Spark." It was just too coincidental! "Meant to be," I thought.
"Looking for a Spark" took one glance at the email address and decided that it could not be! He was too young for her! As he is my age, however, she decided that I should be the one to contact him. And so, I thought about it. And thought about it.... And tucked the slip of paper away.

I moved into a castle, closer to school. As anyone knows, moving causes you to rustle up a lot of old stuff. And so, I came across a receipt with an email address scribbled on the back. Still single, I decided, "Why not?!" And so, with much trepidation, I composed an email: "I know a lot of time has lapsed, and much may have changed in your life...."
Surprisingly, he wrote back! And was still interested in meeting up! What happened next? Well, you'll have to keep reading the blog to find out....
