If you’re keeping score at home today marks a very important anniversary in my life. Do you know what it is? If you guessed it’s the day I first saw a big dog and a little dog walking together (I love that) you are wrong but today is just as important. Three years ago, on this day, I met Nina for the very first time. It was not a date and she made it clear she had no intention of dating me but I wrote this the next day:
I met the Slackmistress last night. I’m not sure that I can describe her in a way that does her justice, because she’s just delightful. For a while I have read her site and been aware of her through the internet but that doesn’t come close to painting the picture. Imagine for a second that you’re a kid again and it’s a holiday. In the morning you see a big present with your name on it but you can’t open it until it gets dark so you wait all day and wonder what it could be. Well if when you open the present it’s everything you wanted and more, your present would be the Slackmistress.
We got married six months later. That’s something to celebrate.
Also, Nina and I are bringing back BetheMarriage tonight at a special time to celebrate my dad’s life with an hour (or more) of toasts and tales like these.
Join us at 6pm PST (that’s 9pm Eastern)tonight for BetheMarriage: Remembering Dad of Boy. It will be fun, we promise.
