It was 19 years ago today that I meet the guy I would spend the rest of my life with. I didn’t know it at the time that a simple encounter could change the trajectory of my life.
Some folks don’t like Friday the 13th, but for me 19 years ago, it was a life changing day! I had only been living in Atlanta for exactly 13 days. I had a job interview, yes on a Friday, and anyone that knows Atlanta, most major corporations are not in stand alone buildings but in complexes so there is a parking garage & all that craziness in Atlanta to find parking. (sorry I digress)
Well, I’m driving around the parking lot trying to find a parking spot & I finally find one. I back into the spot & here comes a security guard talking about I can’t park there.
What the hell? Can’t park here?! Isn’t this a parking spot?
Well, 19 years ago my attitude was let’s just say I wasn’t feeling him trying to tell me what I cannot do. If you knew me then, you know my face showed everything I was thinking and of course my mouth spoke what I was thinking.
So me & this security guard went back & forth about me parking there. He threaten to tow my car & of course I had a few choice words about him & him towing my car but what I did know is I had to get to this interview & he better not tow my car.
As I walked away to get to my interview on time, the last thing I heard him say was “I’m towing your car.”
All while in the interview, I couldn’t help but wonder if he really was towing my car.
Well, long story short: my car wasn’t towed, I didn’t get the job, but I did get the security guard.
Our love begin that day! We laugh at it now because we both was flirting (in our own way) and didn’t realize we were starting a long love affair in that parking garage.
Lasting Love is Reserved for Forgivers
Most of us don’t have those fairy tale meetings that are written in the storybooks but for me, June 13, 1997 started my fairytale and I’m still living happy ever after amd enjoying lasting love!
How did you meet your spouse?
