Twenty-Nine Years Ago Today

weddinggarterWe met at a party on the night I was determined to ignore the male of the species.  I had found out a guy I had a major crush on had decided to go another less complicated route.  He asked me to dance.  I hate to dance.  But I had enough beer in me and was tired of acting like a hard ass, so I figured what the hell.

We were young and immature.  He used to nonchalantly ride his bicycle around the building where I had my Econ class, at about the time when class let out.  He would stop by my dorm in the evenings after working out at the gym.  My parents liked him.  My dad thought he looked like Mark Spitz, the Olympic swimmer.

Fast forward quite a few years.  He still works out and rides his bike.  Our kids tell me I’m immature.  Still.  They’re usually laughing when they say it.

Me and Big Daddy.  What a long strange trip it’s been…

    Big wishes for a wonderful celebration. How many years? And, if I’m not too prying, how did the name Big Daddy come too be?

      29 years Dawn. Big Daddy probably thinks it’s like 129! And wouldn’t you like to know about the Big Daddy thing, haha. No, but seriously, Mama goes with Daddy, and he DOES work out, so he’s kinda big. Just seemed to make sense. 🙂
