OK...Time for me to start a nice topic for a change...
I was thinking about my Hubby & what we will do tonight (prob not much since I have a killer sinus infection), when I got to wondering...
For those of you in a serious relationship, how did the 2 of you meet?
I always find people's stories fascinating. Guess that's why I find "A Wedding Story" on TV fun to watch.
My hubby & I have known ea other since we were 8 years old. We lived only one street away from ea other and he was a friend of my brother's. But for many years, he was just this guy. THEN: High school and here he is: Blond, green eyes, plays football.......WHOA! He is 5 months younger than I am, which was enough to make him one year behind me in school. So, even tho I felt he was a hunk, I didn't think he would ever ask me out.
Then, all of a sudden he started showing up at my locker to walk me out the door at the end of the day. Problem: He had a girlfriend. So why, you may ask, did he walk w me? Well, we were both riding home with the same person, who lived three doors down the street from me. See, we are talking 1970, when not EVERY kid over 16 had a car.
Well, he & I were walking along one day when he said, "OMG...there's a friend of Janet's! Qick! Walk in front of me! Janet will get mad if she finds out we were together!"
I got mad and told him if he couldn't make her understand we were just friends, then he could quit meeting me at my locker.
Next day, there he is......he & Janet had broken up and he was asking me out!!!
We have been together ever since. Got married 5 days after he graduated High School. He was working for the loal telephone company and I was a phlebotomist at a clinic/hospital. He made $2.35 hour and I made $1.85....we thought we were rich!!!
And here we are...June 10th will be 31 years and we are happier than ever!!! (And they said it wouldn't last....:chuckle )
