It was twenty years ago today...
...monsteralice and I had our first date.

I drove up to Wilmington pretty much specifically to see her. She was getting ready for a trip to England that night, and had warned me that she would be in a packing frenzy and probably knock me over and demand to know where I had put her socks. So I brought her a propitiatory gift of a pair of warm wool socks, which were well-received.

I don't remember the name of the restaurant we went to, but it was Italian, and I had something involving sausage and pasta... We had a great time, talking about all sorts of things.

When we said goodnight, she gave me a considering look for a second, followed by a "what the hell" look, and we kissed. It was a nice kiss.

Not too long after that, we started spending a lot of time together. Pretty soon, it became a relationship.

Some time later, she mentioned our first date, but she had the occasion wrong. So I said, "no, it was that time that [fill in description]."

She said, "That was a date?" She said she'd wondered at the time why there weren't more people along, thinking that it was just a dinner outing. She'd never been much into dating, and the possibility had never crossed her mind...

I said, "Well, now you know." She laughed and agreed.

I love you, darling. Here's to twenty years more... and twenty after that... and so on!

Wonderful story! And a wonderful couple came out of it...

I can just see MA giving you that considering look. :)

That is a very sweet story, and very nice. I'm sure I know MA, or at least have met her, but I don't make the connection to who she is with LJ-handle. ^_^

Congratulations to you both though.

awwwww *snarf*


And we should all do dinner someday and catch up.

We sure should. When/where?
