Survivor Finale

Every day in my life is not a noteworthy one.  Shocking, I know.  Today would be one of those days, EXCEPT tonight is the Survivor Finale.  Don't get me wrong, I am very stoked for the finale, but mostly it reminds me of another noteworthy day.

Eric and I first met in the Fall of 2004.  He lived with my good friend, Josh, but I'd only seen him a couple times.  Truthfully, he was dating some stupid girl (stupid because she let him go, I don't actually know anything about her intelligence), and he wasn't around much.  That fall, they split up and Eric came back on the market.  One night I was in his and Josh's apartment, and Eric and I got to talking.  I knew immediately I liked him.  I did not, however, like him enough to miss the Survivor finale.  When Eric asked me out for the first time I said, "No," without offering any reason.  I was too embarrassed to tell him it was because I didn't want to miss Survivor.  I really wanted to go out with him, but he had no idea because I shot him down hard (at least that's how it seemed to him).  It was almost 6 months before he got up the courage to ask me out again, and we did eventually go on our first date.

The moral of this story?  I am SO glad I got a second chance, and that Eric and I will be watching the Survivor finale TOGETHER tonight.  Second moral: get DVR, your eternal marriage may depend on it ;)  Third moral: Go Russell! Ok, "Go Russell" is not a moral, but I'd like to see him win.
