Seventeen years ago — give or take a couple weeks — I was walking through the offices of the student paper at OU when I noticed the new GA writer, the one with glasses and long hair.


Ten years ago today, the new girl and I got married.

When I found Mrs. Crappy all those years ago, I found the person who’s willing to put up with me and my long list of idiosyncrasies. I found my best friend. I found my constant companion. I found someone who laughs at my jokes, even as she’s rolling her eyes. I found someone who not only gets my sense of humor but shares it. I found someone who is as passionate, and as stubborn, as I am.

I found the person I was supposed to spend my life with.

She’s given me more than I can ever repay her for. Fortunately for me, I have the rest of my life to try.
