And speaking of seventeen years ago, sometime around now (we're not sure of the exact date) seventeen years ago, I met Kevin in a math department basement in Eckart. And there was champagne, which I would explain, but it's a long, long story. Suffice it to say that Kevin makes my life a good deal more bubbly than it would be without him, and pretty close to every day, I think about how lucky I was to have found him. Happy anniversary, sweetie!
Seventeen years together -- that just doesn't seem real, y'know? :-)
