My mom was on the third floor, so he scaled the hospital wall carrying a dozen red roses for my mother and one pink rose for me. He was knocking on the window to get my mom's attention and there he was, hanging like a monkey with the roses. I realize that she's perhaps the single most upbeat person I've ever met. I've fallen in love. Our romance actually began the day before, when Milicevic arrived at our cover shoot dragging a suitcase full of her own clothes which we'd asked her to bring and flashing her winning smile.
