10 years ago today, Scott and I had our first date. It wasn't anything special - just an evening at Golden Tee which was a place that teenagers hung out - driving golf balls, shooting pool and playing video games.
We were actually a blind date. I was a waitress at a local restaurant while in college and his family came in to celebrate an anniversary. They all began to persuade me to go out with "Scott" who was at a Bengals game that evening. I told them that I'd think about it and I passed along my phone number. At the time, I wasn't really looking for anyone. A few months before I had split with someone I dated nearly three years, so I guess you could say I was still nursing a heartbreak.
Then, I met HIM. I had been on dates before, but nobody ever really caught my eye. Honestly, Scott didn't catch my attention at first. Sure, he was adorable, opened the door for me, drove a sharp car and was so damn cute I wanted to squeeze him, but he never TALKED. I'd ask him a question and he'd give me a "yes" or "no" answer. Finally, I told him - "in order for this to work you have to TALK." Now, 10 years later, I can't get him to shut up! :)
So, here's to 10 years. 10 years of laughs, kisses, hugs, fights, tears and so much more. I can't wait to see what the next 10 brings us. I would post a picture of our first days but my stupid computer won't work. (I think he installed some sort of anti-virus, anti pop-up thing), so you'll just have to imagine two goofy 19 year-olds. Maybe when he gets home today I'll have him fix it. :)
