It's about time!

Clippy Mat wrote a comment on my last blog. She said I picked a good one, in reference to The Husband.

The fact is, I didn't pick him. I know it sounds corny, but I really think we were meant to find each other. He agrees.

It turns out my aunt and uncle live around the corner from his parents. When we visited Auntie Rose and Uncle Moe, I remember playing hide-and-seek with the neighbourhood kids. Always with my kid brother in tow. The Husband will tell you that he remembers a little black-haired girl playing with him and his friends. All he knew was she was visiting family and she always had her little brother with her.

We each planned to attend Carlton University in Ottawa, but plans changed and neither of us went.

When I began working in Funeral Service, I worked for a man who was well known in the business. The Husband came by the office one day to interview him for a paper he was writing for school. I remember thinking he was cute. He says he remembers the cute secretary.

About a year later, my boss is wooed by another funeral home and takes me with him. And who is working at that funeral home? You guessed it.

We became friends instantly, then ... well, you get the picture.

I think there are two very tired Guardian Angels who are quite pleased that we finally got together.

Guardian Angels? Could be. But you might have overlooked the importance of you both enjoying being around dead people. I mean, that is kind of rare. Most people are all "Rewwwwwwrrrr" about it.

That is so cute. I just hired mine at work. How BO-RING!

Crazy Mo said...

Schmendel: Yeah, all people in funeral service seem to be a little off.

DG: You just hired your husband or your own Guardian Angel? Let me know how that turns out, either way!

Busy Bee Suz said...

I totally sent you the wrong instructions...but I see you already figured it out anyway. :)

Crazy Mo said...

Thanks Suz! Frantastic helped me out. Just for the sake of comment continuity, I posted your instructions anyway. If you want me to delete them, I will. You can just say you were having a beautiful day!

Crazy Mo said...

Busy Bee Suz: Blind Date? Wow, I didn't think those things actually worked!

I believe my guardian angel is still sitting on the toilet trying to get through War and Peace :(

Evil Twin's Wife said...

My husband and I "knew of" each other for years before we met. We had loads of mutual friends, but he was stationed in New Mexico in the Air Force. When he moved back home, we were finally introduced through one friend and that was that!

Crazy Mo said...

lady fairchilde: Hmmm ... that's quite a visual!

ETW: Isn't it funny how Fate works?

Clippy Mat said...

That's a story that was meant to be.
LOL at Lady Fairchilde's comment. How "un" ladylike. :-)

Clippy Mat: We like to think we were meant for each other. Maybe we're just stuck with each other!
