Jack and Jill knew how to kiss, a fact they discovered on their first encounter at 10:28 MST in Vail, Colorado. 

By their third date, Jack was anticipating the best sexual experience ever. 

Forty-two minutes into that date, Jill, 32, stopped the  smooching and asserted she was an “agrapha rapa.”

She explained it was an expression she had concocted to describe her fondness for poetry and dancing. She also said she was a virgin. 

“Are you a Mormon, perhaps?”

“No, but I believe it’s important to really know each other before getting too physically intimate.

“Waiting for the right time allows one to truly understand the other person.”

“You never really know someone until you break up,” said Jack.

“I don’t know if I believe that,” she said. 

They shared a gentle kiss, and a week later, they parted ways, not to see each other again until June 2nd, ten years later.

This chance encounter at 4:01 PM, occurred 22 days after both had divorced their spouses, who were medical doctors, now living together. 

At the time of Jack and Jill’s unexpected meeting, they were each nursing lattes in the café where they first met. And here they were, together again.

“Are you stalking me?” he asked.

“Why would you think that?” 

“You appear every decade.”

“Once in a decade,” Jill corrected. “I heard about your divorce.”. 

“As I said, you never know a person until you break up. Discover anything about your ex when you untied the knot?” 

“Quite a lot,” she admitted.

“So much for your theory that led you to be an “agrapha rapa.”

“Live and learn,” she said at 4:05 PM PST.

Seventeen minutes later, they found themselves in a nearby hotel where they lost track of time for exactly seven hours.
