the day before our wedding, the redferns put together a nice dinner for all of our friends and relatives. at the dinner, there was toasting.
during one of the toasts, the person speaking gave a story. in the story it was said that while the redfern family was in florida for the family vacation, i was observed getting into a fight with steven, then walking away crying. after a minute or two, steven followed me and made up with me.
this story is false.
what happened was this: we were at aquatica. we were fighting about a silly problem. when steven and i get into arguments, we both like to be alone for a few minutes and think things through so that we don't say anything we'll regret. steven got up and walked away.
not to "run away" or whatever... just to go think by himself.
after a few minutes, i realized that i was in the wrong, so i got up (the storyteller was sitting right behind me, not sure that steven and i resemble each other enough to get mixed up) and went to go apologize to steven.
there was no crying.
there was no chasing.
there were no temper tantrums.
just an engaged couple, standing in front of the tidal wave, laughing about our ridiculousness.
