What is it, you ask? This, is my latte that I spilled in the car while taking the kids to the bus stop. I was that desparate for the caffeine. It got into the window controls, etc. Sigh.
So, 20 years ago today, Sean and I had our first date. I was 16. I was a cheap date.( not that kind of cheap) We went to Roy Rogers, and then to the movies. My friend worked at the movie theater we went to, so we got in for free. After that date, I was convinced I would marry him. I told him that. He vehemently denied that it would happen. We married 7 years later, October 15, 1994, after he finished college, after a few bumps in our road, etc.
Many times over these years, I always wondered what things would be like 20 years to the date from Oct. 6, 1988. Why? I don't know. So far, I've had a spilled latte, and a day that will be filled with statistics studying, as I have a HUGE exam tomorrow. Throw in piles of laundry, 2 kids, blah blah blah, you get the picture. Sean is away in Europe. He's been there for over a week, and doesn't come back for a few more days. I'm not hopeful he'll remember today. In fact, I'm fairly convinced he won't remember. Kind of a bummer.
However, being the kind of person I am, I do like to find the humor in all things. Even this. So, let's play a game for my anniversary!
First, please participate in my poll. The question is, will he remember or not? The poll appears at the top of the page.
Second, in the comments section, wish me a happy dating anniversary. Humor, quips, silly little poems, and anything that will make me smile are encouraged. Be creative! At the end of today, I'll put all commenter's names in a drawing, and will draw a winner. Winner gets an anniversary gift from ME. If you live geographically near me, we'll go out and whoop it up. If not, I'll send you something fab. We'll celebrate Debland style, for sure. Let's make this a memorable anniversary!!
Who's in? This is gonna be fun.
