Chris was the type of guy who so badly wanted a girlfriend in high school only to find he was every girls best guy friend. As parents we gave our son the only advice any parent could, "Don't worry about girls. Study hard so you can get into a Good College."
The Good College goal accomplished, Chris was determined to be one half of a couple before the end of the first week. A different girl was brought home for dinner four nights in a row, each one not the right one.
And then on the last day of the week, Chris looked across his Place to Be for the next four years and spotted of all things, a girl theater stage hand wielding a hammer as he would himself. He lay down his electrical lighting cable and approached the girl.
"I think you're kind of cute!" And the girl said,
"I think you're kinda cute, too!"
It was True Love at First Sight. Now if only he could get up the courage to Kiss the Girl. An out of the way spot was needed on a campus where your business was everybody's business. The seldom used Computer Lab, the perfect place to be alone.
Everyone had their own computer! The only people who ever came to the lab were the College Tour Guides.
"We provide the finest facilities here at Ohio Wesleyan for all your student's needs." A light switch turned on.
A first kiss to always remember. The day Harry Met Sally.
Chris and Tammy will celebrate their third Wedding Anniversary on Halloween. They are still as much in love as the last day of the first week of college, and they are still talked about on each College Tour!
