Anyone who tells you that an beautiful, stunningly smart Philly girl who loves science, documentaries, knitting and Broadway musicals can't get along with a math-impaired, sports-obsessed Boston boy who loves video games, comic books, punk music, and science-fiction movies... Well, let me tell you a story.
About twelve years ago, I did the smartest thing I've ever done. I ignored the voice in my head that told me it couldn't work.
About nine years ago, I did the dumbest thing I've ever done. I broke up with her because I was scared. It only took her a few weeks to talk me out of it.
About six or so years ago, I did the second smartest thing I've ever done. I asked her to marry me.
Five years ago today, she did just that. I can say, hands-down and without reservation, it's been the happiest five years of my entire life.
Happy Anniversary, babe.
