So... How Did You Meet Anyway?

Saturday, February 26, 2011


To tell the story of how we first met, I have to take you back 15 years. Yes – for those that didn’t know Dan and I first met at a small little coffee shop on the corner of Wellington and Southdale – and for you Londoners trying to figure out which one that is – I’ll save you some time – it was Country Style and it’s not there anymore – so just like the coffee shop – Our first meeting didn’t result to much.
Our next memorable meeting took place at a New Years party for the new millennium – I was happily dancing around taking pictures with my 2000 glasses on as Dan came in the door with his friends – I took a picture of them and then I’m pretty sure I didn’t see him for the rest of the night
– I still have the picture today – but again – similar to the doomsday predictions and all the fear of Y2K – Our second meeting didn’t result to much either.
Finally in 2004, I was working out on the elliptical machine at the local gym when Dan hopped on the one next to me. It had been so long that I wasn’t sure if I should say hi – but Dan did and we briefly chatted then, and every time we saw each other at the gym after. Finally, after a couple of months of that – Dan called and asked me out on date…and as they say – the rest is history – so it’s no surprise – that after meeting at a doomed coffee shop and over-hyped new years – we would finally find our happy ending at a gym called “Good Life”.
