(As told by Ben)
Toni and I were working together at a fashion company that had the licenses for RocaWear and Shady. I worked in IT and apparel production, and she was their head accessories designer. We met when I came to fix her computer. It kept breaking, fancy that! But she wanted to set me up with her friend.
In March she left to go work for Liz Claiborne as a handbag designer, and I drifted out of my job to work on my master’s degree in classics. After the third or fourth time of her trying to set me up with her friend, we went out ourselves.
She had a trip to Peru’s Sacred Valley planned with her friend that May. We had basically had one real date, and she said, “Wanna go?” I said, “Sure.”
