She had chosen her son in law but ...remember in The Lion King when Zazu tells Nala and Simba that they are betrothed and they say, " Oooh gross he's my friend." Well, I was beyond the cooty thing but what if all of the sudden I started crushing on Mike? What would happen to our friendship? That was my worry. For months.
But ...when I came back to school after Christmas, the first person I wanted to see was Mike. So I called his apartment. Lance said he was at Becky's.
If I was jealous of Becky... could that mean that I. Liked. Mike?
I started showing more interest. You know. Not friend interest.
He responded quite encouragingly.
About a year later he gave me a diamond.
I had big hair. He had a mullet.
I still wish big hair was in style. He wishes he had a mullet.
Since then we've gone to 2 Universities, and lived in 8 different residences in 5 different cities in 3 different states.
We have four kids, a dog, a mortgage, 2 cars, a yard, 8 bikes, and 21 years of marital bliss.
I think I'm a pretty lucky girl!
