The Making of a Love Story Part 1

Once upon a Skype conversation....yes, it really did start with Skype (for those of you who are a little behind the times and don't know what Skype is, Google it. ;) ).  Joe's sister Aubrey was skyping Tiffany one day, at a time when both of their brothers were away for two weeks helping a crop duster at his hanger. Aubrey was using Joe's Skype account that day for some reason instead of her own, and the conversation was about how much they were missing their brothers...

Tiffany: I miss Bobby. I don't like it when he's gone.

Aubrey: I don't like it when Joe's gone either. Mom says  I have to get used to it though, he's getting to the age where he will get a wife and and a new life.

Tiffany: But won't that be a while yet?

Aubrey: Depends on the Lord, depends on whether he gets a job, depends on the girl, depends on a lot of things.

Tiffany: *nods*

Aubrey: Are you going to submit your application? ;)

Tiffany: :P  I don't have an application.

At the time, Tiffany thought Aubrey was crazy. She was a little shocked Aubrey would ask her such a thing! Nothing else was said about it though as they moved on to other small talk. Joe and Bobby got back from their extended trip, and Joe had apparently been having thoughts of his own. Low and behold, he knew that his sister had used his Skype.

Joe: Aubrey was using my Skype while I was gone!

Tiffany: lol, yes, she was.

 Joe:  I didn't know they were accepting applications for me!!!

Tiffany: lol! Sneaky, sneaky.

Joe: lol, I wonder who has applied.

Tiffany: I don't know. She didn't tell me about it. ;)

Joe: She asked you if you were applying

(By this time, Tiffany is thinking, This guy is crazy!)

Tiffany: Yeah, and I said I didn't have an application... :P

Joe: I wonder where you pick those up...

Tiffany: lol (Are you kidding me? What is he thinking?!?)

A few days later, Joe sends Tiffany an email asking if she would be interested in pursuing a courtship.  Tiffany took the email to her parents, and then replied to Joe's email, stating in no uncertain terms, that she was not interested.
