|The story of how we met|
|We can pretty much blame this all on Laura's friend and my former roommate Jordan. The week before Columbus day weekend of 1998 Jordan was talking online with Laura and wanted me to type to her while he called her on the phone. We started talking and realized that we would actually like to meet each other. Since Jordan was going to take Laura from Long Island back to Tufts on his way back to UMass I asked her if she would like to head up with him to our school and we could see a movie on that holiday Monday.
That following Monday Laura came back to school with Jordan and I rented a scary movie for us to watch. We watched the movie (later I found out that Laura had already seen that movie but she pretended to be scared anyway) and then went out to Bickfords for dinner. After dinner I took her back to her dorm and neither one of us knew what the other was thinking. There was no time to talk about it at the end of the date either; Laura ran out of the car as soon as I pulled up to her dorm.
This is the part that got weird. I didn't call Laura seeing as how the date had ended and Jordan didn't say anything about her liking me. I also didn't get Laura's phone number from her (she expected me to ask Jordan for it). Finally Jordan talked to Laura and she was worried I didn't like her because I didn't call (it had only been a couple of days) :-) Turned out she was late for one of her first sorority meetings, and well, you can imagine what pledging is like...well Jordan told me this and I called her and we talked for quite awhile and agreed to see each other for another date. One date turned into two, two into three and now it turns out she wants to be my wife. Good thing someone had her phone number!! :-)
