Twenty-two years ago tonight

April 6, 2011

Twenty-two years ago tonight I:

Lied to my mother about studying for finals.
Made arrangements to stay with a girlfriend.
Drank my last drink.
Got stoned for the last time (well, unless you count the drooly-drugs they give you after surgery).
Teased my hair.
Bent a coat hanger doing up my jeans.
Slapped on a whole lot of makeup.
Went to a Metallica concert (the …and Justice tour if you’re curious).
Got knocked on my ass by a dude who flew out of the moshpit.
Met and was picked up (literally) by the man who became my best friend, my husband and the father of my child.

He doesn’t like me talking about him or posting his picture (and man do we have some doozies from the 80’s!) but I figure he’ll make an exception if I post about him today. He’d better, it’s our ‘anniversary’ dammit.

      Maybe even epic. I’ll have to see if any pictures survived. (Remember back in the day when you could actually destroy evidence?)

    Belated happy anniversary! I love reading about how people met and fell in love. We need more love and less hatred on the net. 🙂
