"PSA: Ostriches can and will absolutely fuck your day up." That's the opening line that somehow won Taylor's heart. Like everybody reading this, we have no idea how that worked. After chatting for a few days online, we decided to meet up for a first date. Work happened, and Taylor had to cancel the first date. We rescheduled, and hours before our *second* first date, Francis had to cancel because he had a little "tickle" in his throat... We all know how that ended. A month later (don't blame Taylor, we didn't know how long this COVID thing was contagious back then), we went on our first real date, and the rest is history. PS: We are both still absolutely terrified of ostriches (and COVID), and you should be, too.
