It was December, I had been hanging out with this girl I met in college for a few months - getting to know her, etc. I was about to fly home for Christmas and I swung by her house to say goodbye. We had an awkward kind of hug moment, then I left. I had driven to the end of the block when I realized I had made a horrible mistake, so I u-turned, drove back to her house, let myself in, and ran up the stairs to plant a big kiss on her lips. "Wow" was all she said. I left and flew home, my mind on her the entire way back to Missouri.
That was in 2004, and we've been married for over two years.
