You are the winner of Deb's date-a-versary contest!
The ironic thing in all of this, is that Dave was Sean's college roommate for a few years. We go waaaaay back. How ironic! I was assuming one of my sympathetic female readers would win, but it was not to be.
So, Dave, would you have remembered the anniversary? Do tell, do tell.
You can choose from the following prizes:
a. A Starbucks gift card.
b. A cookie-gram, sent to your home.
c. the opportunity to host Sean and I for a weekend in NYC.
Email me and let me know. I'm sure Sean is hoping you'll pick d.
So, to answer the burning question...did he remember? He called last night from Europe to say hi. Towards the end of our conversation, I said, "you don't know what day it is, do you?"
Sean - "Yes, I do know what day it is."
Me - " Ok, what is it?"
Sean - "It is the 20th anniversary of our first date."
Me - "Were you going to say something about it?"
Sean - "No, why?"
Me - "Well because America is voting on whether or not you remembered."
Sean - "This is on your blog?"
Me - "Of course. Think of it this way, it's like American Idol. You might get famous."
Sean - " Hmm... Well, Happy Anniversary."
Me - "Is that all you want to say about it?"
Sean - " Uhh, yeah. Well, I've known you for a long time."
Me (thinking) - No sh**, Sherlock.
Me - "Yes, it has been a long time."
Wow, you can really feel the romance flowing freely here! I wonder what the conversations will sound like at 25 and 30 years?
The rest of the conversation was your standard run of the mill pleasantry exchange, etc. I did find out he was being flown home on the corporate jet today, which will get him home tonight instead of tomorrow.
Normally, that would be fine. But, I had a girl's wine and movie night planned tonight! Let's just keep that our little secret, shall we?
****Honorable mention to Megan! Did you guys read her poem? Very clever.******
Thanks everyone for playing!!! It really made yesterday more cheerful.
