Today is the anniversary of two important moments in my life:
– On December 28, 1985 I met a childhood hero of mine, which would have been cooler if I was dressed less like a girl.
– Three years ago today, after discussing it for two minutes with a friend, Nina and I decided to move in together. A few days later we decided to upgrade that to getting engaged (it’s the classic relationship double down move). It probably seemed crazy considering that we had been dating for just over a month but believe it or not, we knew exactly what we were doing. On the short list of smart decisions I’ve made, this one is probably at the top.
