‘Talk To Her’ By David Foster

This is the story of how I met my wife, beginning with a series of missed opportunities during my brief interim living in L.A., career disappointments atop disappointment with myself, romantically, existentially, in every way. After sufficiently beating myself up for it, I vowed to never shy away from talking to a strange girl again, especially one who was offering me an inviting eye. It was this decisive resolve that led to the boldest and final move I’d ever make, asking out my primary care physician.
