I met Dereb in college
in one of those friend of a friend deals. Dereb lived with some
guys at a large apartment near the engineering school, and a
friend of mine had gone to high school with one of them. We stopped
by the apartment one afternoon because my friend had to pick
up something. Some of the guys, including Dereb, were playing
nerf basketball, with a little plastic basketball hoop stuck
to a banister. My friend's friend briefly introduced me to the
guys. Dereb said hi or acknowledged me and my friend and went
back to playing, and my friend and I left like a minute later.
That was it. To be honest, I thought Dereb was good looking,
but didn't think much about it.
Not long after, maybe the next day, I was standing in snow
outside the Union near the street. It was one of those bright
sunny winter days. Dereb came up to me and asked if we had met
earlier, and I said yes.
