Heads Or Tails #55 - Box

***********************************

As hostess of Heads Or Tails, I encourage thinking done outside the box. This post is going to be so outside it's not going to be funny. But then that's the point, right? Hmm.. Maybe.

I wanted to say that Tuesday is the 8 year anniversary of me and hubby meeting!!! For those of you who don't know, we met online in a chat room and hit it off right away. After only two weeks of talking online and a few phone calls, he drove across the state to meet me. (Sept. 9) We went to a park and talked for a while, then went to dinner. (Then we talked a lot more and it was too late for him to drive home and he stayed overnight, but I don't think I'll talk about that.)

We dated for five years before we got married. I think I told him to shit or get off the pot, actually. (Laugh.)

Congratulations for the eight years. I have had such a busy summer that I have not kept up with H or T but as soon as I have the last plum and apple dealt with I plan to be back.

I love how far outside the box you went this week. :) Thanks for sharing this Tuesday.

Anna said...

That's so far outside the box, that I can't even find the box!

Happy anniversary of meeting to you and Mike! September 9 is my dad's birthday, but that has absolutely nothing to do with it. (how's that for out of the box?)

I met my husband online, too, 6 or 7 years ago. We recently celebrated our 3rd anniversary as a married couple. Congrats to you!

'shit or get off the pot'....sounds like something I WOULD SAY!!!

Happy anniversary of your 1st meeting!

My HoT is posted. Come on by for a visit if you can get a chance.

Well, if you could talk to someone like that, I guess that means you can communicate well and get along.

Happy Anniversary!!

What a sweet story. Even if you had to (sort of) threaten him! Ha ha.

Happy Tuesday, Barb.

Right on! I got more or less badgered into marrying my Poor Hubby. I might tell that story someday.

Happy Anniversary. I think 5 years is ENOUGH to wait for someone. Good for you for speaking up.

Isn't it amazing what boxes will hold.

Oh, you are so cute! Many congrats on your anniversary, and I hope you do something nice together to celebrate.

Ah … I do my best each week to think ‘outside the box’ for HoTs … and I’m always fascinated to see the varied ideas folks come up with on Tuesdays. Thanks for dropping by mine at Small Reflections. I was away from home all day yesterday so I didn’t get to do any visiting until today … but it’s been fun ;--)
How ‘kewl’ that you met your hubby online!
Hugs and blessings,
