As best that we can tell, two years ago tomorrow is the date that Farmer Ted and I actually started flirting on Facebook. You can read about the gory details in this blog post, don’t let the Wooly Aphids scare you…that was back when we actually blogged about gardening.
Ted and I went to high school together, and while we remember each other we have no memories of ever actually hanging out. At first I suppose it was because we had gone to different middle schools. Then, somewhere in his second sophomore year Ted got “asked to leave.” And in a pre-Facebook world, that was that. What are the odds we would ever have met up with each other again?
But Facebook changed the odds, and here we are. A couple. Raising spawn, spoiling a dragon, sometimes we plant stuff and cook it. Occasionally we go places to amuse ourselves, quite often that place is Facebook where we alternately amuse and alienate our friends. We blog about it, mostly.
Anyway, I am truly blessed to have this wonderful man in my life. Thank you Mark Zuckerberg.
Next…I wrote this today b/c it’s my theory that the internet is going to spontaneously combust as millions of people who don’t know what to do with themselves w/o Wikipedia for a day run amok. Also, tomorrow is my youngest sister’s bday. Birthdays trump Facebookversaries, so it really should be all about her. And, I still have to chastise the USPS. Again.
