I was just sitting here drinking my coffee, casually scrolling through my Facebook friends feed, and pondering destiny, fertility, mortality, and foot massages when all of the sudden a random video post caught my eye and out of nowhere, I see in the little accompanying still photo A PICTURE OF MY VERY OWN HUSBAND — MY ONE TRUE LOVE, from over 20 years ago — and my troubled, troubled heart leapt with joy!
For me, the funny part is that in one of the comments below the video on YouTube, someone wrote, “The guy at 1:44 has no idea he’s speaking to a future idol” — when the truth of the matter is, Gregory ABSOLUTELY KNEW. He knew from the very first time he met him, hung with him, laughed with him, played with him, and eventually recorded him — one song of which would later appear on their boxed set, With the Lights Out. Oh, HE KNEW. He told me that once you met Kurt, there is NO WAY NOT TO HAVE KNOWN.
One of my husband’s greatest gifts in this life is that he has an unerring eye for the extraordinary — and that is because he himself is extraordinary.
My Honeybunny is at 1:44.
