Lucky Day

Here is a "how we met" legend, passed along from  a fellow Vermonter to you.

When I was 20 I took a year off from college to take a break from the books. I got a job driving a delivery truck for a local egg farm: Lucky Day Eggs.
My day started at 5:00AM, and my job was to make egg deliveries to  a bunch of small restaurants in our area. My favorite stop was at a little delicatessen called The Lunch Box. I'd get there around 8:00AM and get to talk with the girl who was getting everything ready for the upcoming lunch rush. She was really cute and I was "in love", but how do you make a move during a ten minute egg delivery? Well one day the truck broke down by the restaurant where my cute girl worked. Now I had the time I needed...got the phone number...got the date...got the girl. And the title of this story?...It's obvious.

The year went by and I went back to school and graduated. I know the story would be better if I could say that the lunch girl and I ended up getting married and living happily ever after, but we didn't. We dated for a while after I graduated, but then we drifted apart. Still, though, it's a great story and I tell it to my kids all the time. My wife knows that it's ancient history so she likes it, too.
