He is the “Moons Over My Hammy”
I’ve always been a fan of the all-night diner. I spent many an hour(or four) in high school and college sitting at Denny’s or IHOP drinking coffee, smoking cigarettes (no judgment please) and chatting with friends. I’ve met new friends there, played cards there, discovered the frugal delights of saltine crackers dipped in ranch dressing there, cried on my friend’s shoulder there, so many things… never did I think I would meet my soul mate there…but that’s exactly what happened.
My husband and I have an interesting story about how we met. We met at Denny’s, yes the restaurant, all-night diner, place you go after a night at the nightclub, whatever you want to call it.
We had a mutual friend who (early one morning) October 1st, 1995~ not that I remember the exact date or anything , came home from Atlanta and called all her friends and asked them to meet her at Denny’s. My husband and I were the only ones who were able, willing, whatever to go.
This is how I met my husband. At Denny’s early in the morning, over coffee and coke and a midnight breakfast.
I knew immediately that he was a person I wanted to get to know better. He was funny, engaging, very easy on the eyes
We spent the next few days hanging out with our mutual friend and a group of his friends. October 4th we had our first date. October of the following year (1996) he asked me to marry him. If I had not wanted to be married as soon as possible we might have married the following October. I was not willing to wait that long to marry my man. We married in March of 1997. We have two beautiful and surly kids (age 11 and 13), and I still believe my sweetie is funny, engaging and easy on the eyes, I now also know that he is brilliant, adaptive, a wonderful father and a loving and gentle husband.
I’ve never looked back, never been unhappy with my choice, never regretted the late night call that brought me to my soul mate.
He is, and will always be the “Moons Over My Hammy”
A funny side note, when I introduced my sweetie to my dear friend Lane…it was at Denny’s, when she introduced my husband and me to her new boyfriend/future hubby…it was at Denny’s. Funny but true.
