"We were at a law firm together, I was a Summer associate, she was already practicing law. I had been sort of eying her for a while, but she was acting real professional. Finally I wear her down a little bit and I say, we're coming back from a firm picnic and I said, 'Well let's go get some ice cream.' We went to Baskin-Robbins on 53rd Street in Chicago, she bought chocolate, I don't remember what I bought. They didn't have any seats in the store so we sat out on a curb on a Summer day and had ice cream, and that's when I asked her if I could kiss her."
