“ … and I was 14, and my girlfriend Suzy, with whom I’m still friends… She was a few months older than I was, because I was a little ahead in school. So that’s why I graduated in January.” - Lily Tomlin (x)
So I went to the zoo today with my boy thing and had a lot of fun so I decided to share some pictures that I took while I was there :) the otter was my absolute favorite, since they’re my all time favorite animal, so he bought me an otter stuffed animal from the gift store XD it was the greatest!
Prompt for Patater + their engagement story? Or first kiss? Oooohhhh their wedding? Or like a collection of their firsts??????
for this!! I still want to do the engagement story and wedding, or a collection
of their firsts (all three of those, honestly) but for a quick one-shot, here’s
their first kiss. It’s awkward, like they are.
It’s Kent’s stick that breaks Tater’s nose. He goes for a
slapshot and ends up cracking the Falconers d-man across the face.
After the game, and then the post-game interview in the locker
room, he texts Jack with an apology. Jack replies that his teammate is fine,
the doctors gave Tater local anesthesia and put the bones back in place. Tater
will be scratched for a week to give his nose time to heal, and then he’ll be
back in the game.
Kent goes out for dinner and drinks with his teammates
afterwards. Providence isn’t a big town, so it’s kind of not a surprise to see
Tater and the Falc’s goalie, Snowy, at the restaurant’s bar.
He excuses himself from the Aces’ table and heads over. Tater
sees him coming and starts to smile, but then winces.
“That looks bad,” Kent says, because it does. Tater’s left eye
is bruised and so is all the skin around his nose, which has been splinted up
with a plastic cast. “Sorry, man. I didn’t see you behind me.”
“Is okay,” Tater says. He’s being careful not to move more
facial muscles than absolutely necessary. “Had worse.”
“Hurts like a bitch, though, right?”
“Only when I smile.”
At Tater’s left, Snowy snorts. “So, all the fuckin’ time,
“I am friendly guy,” Tater says. “People like people who
smile. Is why everyone think you’re scary, Snowy.”
“No, everyone thinks I’m scary because I fucking am scary.”
Kent thinks Snowy might be a little drunk. “Let me get you
a drink,” Kent says to Tater. “To apologize for fucking up your face.”
