A Campfire Tale… a post from Loretta’s cousin Brian

How Loretta & Jackson Met by Brian Scriver…[since you have all been dying to know how we met we have given Brian artistic licence to interpret our first meeting ;P]

Many people ask how Loretta and Jackson met… Many do not know how they actually met.  However, Loretta and I have known each other all our lives.  So, I have it on good authority to know the saga of how Loretta and Jackson met.

It all started on an early crisp day in March 2009.  Loretta was going through the Tim Horton’s drive through on her way to school.  There was a Honda Civic in line ahead of her.  Little did she know, a couple of years later, she would be engaged to the driver of this car.  Jackson of course was the driver of that car.  He saw in his rear-view mirror, while waiting for his morning java someone who peaked his interest.  Jackson did not go unnoticed to Loretta either.

Not knowing what to do, the quick-thinking Jackson decided to give the girl at the window a nice tip, and a note, written on a receipt.  It simply read: “You’re beautiful, and I’d like to buy you a coffee sometime, and actually be able to get to know you. – Jackson”.  Of course his number was also included.  He “paid it backwards”, and bought Loretta her hot apple cider, and asked for the doughnut dealer to pass along the note, with her cider.

The Tim Bit teller complied with Jackson’s wishes.  When Loretta arrived at the window, she gave Loretta the note, along with her gratis beverage.  Intrigued by who this mystery man was, she pondered for quite some time.  Questions ran through her head.  Who was this man?  Why would he do such a thing?  How desperate could he be?  What’s wrong with him?  And most importantly – how could I not call him?

Jackson waited anxiously.  He went back to the same Tim Hortons, every day until he received that call from Loretta – nearly two weeks later.

They chatted that first evening on the telephone for nearly an hour.  Jackson made Loretta laugh.  Loretta made Jackson laugh.  There was instant chemistry.  A coffee (or cider) date was arranged shortly thereafter…

A match made in a Tim Horton’s Drive Thru – now that’s a double-double!

Now isn’t that just the most perfect fairytale meeting one could possibly tell their mom? 😛
