Storyline

Gloria receives a telegram from an old college friend Debbie Ballentine announcing the birth of her sixth child. Mike doesn't remember her, but Gloria reminds him that she was the one who introduced them 9 years ago. That leads to a flashback of how Mike and Gloria met through a double date with their college roommates. Gloria was young and virginal, while Mike was a scruffy hippie who blew off a chance to protest at the Nixon inauguration. Initially they find that they hate each other, but as they begin to talk they find that they both enjoy the older style of dancing. The dance leads to a kiss, then the kiss leads to a second date. The rest is history. Written by Jerry Roberts <armchair-cinema@hotmail.com>
