At Betty's insistence, Calvin and I went out on one date. He had just started seeing Sarah, so he got her permission to show Betty that he and I were really like brother and sister. It was a great date. We went to see The Sound of Music at the Fox theater, grabbed a bite, sat on a bench in Piedmont Park by the lake, talked, and we decided that enough time had gone bye to go back home. Betty was happy, Sarah was lucky enough to have his love, and I was lucky to be his "sister". He will be missed.
