Turns out there actually is a touching true-life story and romance behind that holiday classic "Another Auld Lang Syne" by Dan Fogelberg. That coincidental convenience-store meeting? It really happened!
My favorite lines from that song:
We drank a toast to innocence, we drank a toast to now
Tried to reach beyond the emptiness, but neither one knew how
The beer was empty and our tongues were tired, running out of things to say
She gave a kiss to me as I got out, and I watched her drive away
Just for a moment I was back in school and felt that old familiar pain
And as I turned to make my way back home, the snow turned into rain
Yeah, it's a REALLY old song, but still a really beautiful one! And now we know how it came to be ... cool.
