Love GenX Style Contest entry #5


Remember 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 Margie Gunn...


My husband and met 11 years ago at St. Joseph's University in Philadelphia. I was a 2nd semester senior (you know how that is!?) and he was a junior. I was all convinced that I was going to have fun and enjoy my last sememster of college! I wasn't going to be "tied" down with any serious relationships!? Well one day I began my Major American Writers Class...This tall, handsome guy walks in to the CR and sits by me... and things forever changed!

First I must mention that our teacher assigned the seats where we were seating that day so we had to eventually talk and get to know one another.

Then we discovered we had mutual friends in common and probably crossed paths before. Finally one night we were at the same bar (you know, one of those all you can drink mug nights) and I finally went over to him. I was tired of waiting around for Mike to approach me!?

Well we talked for hours and hit it off that night ;-) When my husband proposed to me 2 years later, he told me one of our teachers wanted one of his papers to submit in a journal...Mike was/is very smart so I didn't think anything of it!? Well while we walked through the halls of Bellerman Hall, he stopped in the classroom where we had initially met. I walked in the room to reminisce and that is when Mike dropped to his knee and proposed! I was completely shocked.

We now have been married for almost 9 years and have baby #2 on the way.

We've beaten the odds so far as Gen X...I am certain I will be emailing about our 50th anniversary as well :-)
