So, me and the missus are talking love at the breakfast table. But first she has her advent lottery ticket of the day, and the prize is 500 bucks!!!! And she scratches, and scratches, and scratches.....all promise and no cash, a LOSER ticket. And she reminds me of Dieter saying on SNL:
"It pulls down my pants and taunts me"
And she describes at the office, since boss number one was out, they spent the day gossiping. About love.....
Various people in the office described the first meeting with their spouse, and knowing: "that is the one I am gonna marry!".
Our story is better than that, me and the missus, but let me share our secrets with you, esp. because our 16th anniversary is next week :)
In the spring of 1991, I was walking down the street in Chicago with the person who would become my EX in 3 months. Under the elevated train tracks near the school where I taught, we bumped into an aquaintance of mine, and I introduced the (soon to be) EX to that woman and cheery pleasantries were exchanged. The EX turns to me and says "I bet that woman becomes your Missus Rith". It was totally out of the blue, and I had not even ever shaken the hand of the person so designated....but 6 months from then WE did start dating and then married December 24, 1992. Can you imagine, your soon to be EX psychically suggesting your next lover?
NOPE, not made by me.
