Happy Sunday TKW Family and Happy Anniversary to Mr. Fantabulous and I. 22 years ago today he walked into my life and it was within a single look that I knew without a shadow of a doubt that he was the man I was going to marry. We were both in our mid-20s and me, working a full-time job while running my own Dot Com company and managing my family’s pizza shop wanted to go back to school for another degree. I wasn’t sure if I could fit school into my already overbooked life but I did it anyway. I decided to go to our local community college as it was inexpensive and close to home. As I was deciding on a class the only one that would fit my schedule was a pre-calc class. Now considering my background in mathematics I argued with the school that I could teach the class or can I just test out. Unfortunately (or fortunately as it turns out) the professor wouldn’t allow that. So begrudgingly I took the class.
As I sat there, middle row seat, I was chatting with some newly graduated high school kid about my background in mathematics when he stood in the doorway. He stood there with his backpack over his shoulder scanning the room for a place to sit. Our eyes met, locked and he gave me a smile. For me, my entire world changed. My heart both beat fast and slow at the same time. I was consumed with a feeling I had never felt before. Time literally stood still. He took the chair in front of me but one over to the right. As he put his book bag on the back of the chair he looked at me and smiled. I just sat there awestruck. I because confused, flushed yet at peace. I felt an almost state of euphoria but my mind and heart were racing a million miles a minute.
I turned my head and said to the girl next to me, Vicki was her name, “Oh my god! Did you see that guy that just walked in???” in a very calm, soft voice as I pointed to him. She said, “Yeah, he’s really hot!”. I just looked at her/almost through her and said in an even tone, “I’m going to marry him.”. She said, “Do you know him?” and with a sound of confusion I replied, “I’ve never seen him before in my life but I’m going to marry him.”
She gave me a look which we’ve all given someone in our lives that we think has lost their damn mind however with me I was dead serious.
It wasn’t love at first sight or even lust (though he was/still is freaking hot as hell) but rather “I knew” he was the one. I knew to my very core that he was the man I was supposed to marry; that he was my split apart. I was really freaked out by all of this as I had never experienced this before. I could hardly catch my breath but yet I just felt at peace. I felt whole though prior to that moment I didn’t know I was missing a piece. The professor said we had to break up into groups of 4 and turn in our work as a group every week. He said he had 30 seconds to pick a group or he was assigning us to one. Vicki and I said we’d join up and as soon as the professor said “Go!” he turned around, looked at me and said, “I want her!” I’m pretty sure at that point I blushed about 47 shades of red and had the stupidest smile on my face but he picked me. Now we ‘argue’ that he only chose me because I’m a math genius but he argues otherwise. Anyway, 2 weeks after that first meeting we were inseparable.
So today just for this post if you’ll pardon the break from my normal Sunday post I’m going to just post this and spend the day with the most amazing man I’ve ever know, Mr. Fantabulous.♥
