How many of you are still with the same person you kissed 16 years ago? And those of you married for 16 years or more don't count. Sorry! I guess the question would be how many of you are with the same person you kissed when you were 16? It's a rarity. It's one of those things that people find out when we meet someone new: "So, how did you guys meet? College? Work?" "No, high school." "Oh, you went to high school together?" "Yeah, we've actually been together since high school." "Really?! That's a long time!"
Yup. It's a long time.
I think about it every year on October 19th. I'm glad we kissed. I'm even more happy about the fact that J picked me. When you think about how many other people he could have picked...
Here's to you, J, 16 years later. I love you.
