My sweetheart and I were trying to figure out the exact date that we met. I told Bob: “I have calendars we can look at.”
“You have calendars?”
I have kept these calendars since I was in college (80’s). Now it’s how my mind works — this is how I keep track of things. I hate the calendar on my stupid phone.
I have never been super vigilant about the details so it’s not a perfect record of my existence but there are a lot of historical tidbits in here.
It was 20 years ago today. My cousin Bari introduced us. We had a family dinner at my Uncle LeRoy’s house when he lived in the house up in the hills. We were going to see The Piano the next day but we didn’t.
Research confirms that the movie came out in November 93 but it won several Oscars in March of 94 so it would make sense that it would be available for us to see. Bob said that Bari cancelled because she had morning sickness. That isn’t my recollection but the math adds up, too Sinead is going to be 20 this September.
Now we’re old married farts. And we’re okay with that.
