My future husband
Yesterday we celebrated our seventh wedding anniversary. What an adventure the past 9 years have been. Oh the drama and excitement of dating, and the happiness and comfort of being married.
Back in our college days I let S. and his roommate, Mark, borrow my computer. My roommate had one, and being the nice friend/girlfriend (we dated on and off so I have no idea if I was actually dating S. when I let him borrow it) that I was I gave it to them. Man, it was old school. Anyway, I didn't think to remove any of my past assignments, but soon I realized my mistake and was as mortified as a girl who doesn't get embarrassed could be.
One day on campus S. and I were walking and out of the blue he started dropping some sentences that sounded oddly familiar. He proceeded to pull out a piece of paper that had my name written at the top with the heading for my Marriage Prep class with an assignment entitled "My Future Husband." He and Mark had found the document on my computer, printed it out and actually checked off the characteristics S. possessed. I was NOT the type of girl to make a list like this on my own and how embarrassing that the man of my dreams had found it. It was purely for my class assignment. Why had I NOT ERASED IT?!!??!?!?
Well, I am happy to say that he still gets checks by all of those requirements (always has in my mind, actually. He just thought he fell short of a couple, but who isn't poor in college, anyway?). Actually, he has fulfilled all those hopes more than I could have ever dreamed. He is my real-life Prince Charming.
Here's to eternity, Funnyman. I love you.
