Love GenX Style Contest entry #14Remember the story with the most votes wins the "date with your spouse" gift certificate! If you haven't yet submitted a story...what are you waiting for? :)
Today's entry is from Cassie L:
Cory and I met my freshman year in college. We went to a small private college where they gave out a phone directory of all the students.
Well, Cory's younger brother was in a couple of my classes and I was trying to call him so we could study.
I didn't even know this boy had a brother, so I looked up the last name Largaespada (how common can THAT name be?) in the EagleCom (yes, that is what it was called) and dialed the number.
As I'm sure you can see it coming, I called Cory instead of his brother. It took me a few minutes to discover what had happened. Once that was straightened out, we went on to have a 3 hour conversation even though we had never met in person. We both said how strange it was to be talking so long with someone we didn't even know.
This began a great friendship that eventually led to a dating relationship and, soon afterword, engagement and marriage.
Now, we have 4 gorgeous (that is my totally objective opinion) children and we have been married for almost 10 years!
I often wonder if we would be where we are today if I hadn't called the wrong number 11 years ago.
