Today I’m so happy to be over at the lovely and talented Leigh Kramer’s blog sharing the story of how I met my husband for her This Is How We Met series. We met in high school, but before you say awww, you should know we got off to a pretty rough start.
Here’s the beginning:
The fall of senior year, my high school English teacher broke our class into small groups to do little skits on MacBeth. I was with 5 people I knew, and one I didn’t–an unfamiliar boy who, so I’d heard, had transferred in the year before. My friend and I were making the arrangements for the group meeting, dividing up which people to call. I drew the short straw and had to call the boy.
We’d never talked at school; I wasn’t sure if he knew who I was. But I called, and explained that most of us could meet before school to run through our skit. I was unprepared for his response: “I can’t be there, I have to take my sister to school then. Tell them you couldn’t get ahold of me, okay? Just tell them we never talked.”
