There was this one shy boy who wanted to practice introducing himself to people at this particular competition; he figured he already knew everyone coming from his school, and he’d probably never see the others again, so there was no pressure. Turns out the very person to whom he introduced himself was me. It turns out we did go to the same school, but since I’d just moved to the city, we hadn’t yet met.
Seven years later I married that boy. Five years after that, we have two pretty cute smalls. February 6th, you were a good day. Thanks for happening.
(We both ended up studying business, too. Pretty impactful teacher!)
