A Girl walks into Class...

Seventeen years ago I was a college sophmore.  I needed a language credit and chose German.  It was January when I walked  into that German class and little did I know it would change my life.  You see there was a guy in that class.  He looked to be about 20.  He was creatively dressed.  He was really confident.  He was kinda cute too.

I was 19, a bit shy and quiet.  Since it was a smaller class we all got to know one another.  The guy started talking and flirting with me as the semester passed.  Another girl in the class had to clue me in on the flirting. (I was kind of dense about that sort of stuff.) One day ages came up and imagine the surprise when I found out I was almost a year older than he was.  He had thought I was an advanced high school student--maybe 17 or so.  So there was surprise on both sides.

After about a month of teasing and flirting in class, he jokingly asked if I would cook him dinner.  I said only if you want microwave mac-n-cheese.  He laughed and gave me his phone number.  I called him that night, to his surprise, and we talked for about an hour.  He then asked me out to the movies for the following Friday.  I agreed.

On Friday February 26, 1993, Nick took me on our first date.  We really haven't been apart since.  I didn't realize when I walked into that German class I would find my best friend, lover and future husband.  We have had our ups and downs but we are still together.

I love you Nick.  Happy unofficial anniversary.  See you for dinner tomorrow night. (Sans kids-woo-hoo!)
