I wanted to get married today

Today, as you know (and can see above), is September 9, 2009. That’s 09-09-09.

About three years ago, I thought I wanted to get married on this date. Why not, right?

I figured college would be over and the summer after college being over would be over too. Time to start a family. (Does a wife count as a family?)

My parents married when they were my age, which is crazy to think about now. As a kid, my favorite number was nine.  It’s a wonderful time of year. And the 9/9 date is easy to remember.

I only needed to find someone to share the same memory with me.

Needless to say, I’m not getting married today.

I actually forgot all about it until a friend reminded me yesterday with a completely unrelated topic (i.e. dressing up as a nun for Halloween).

Still, ’tis a milestone for other reasons. I’ll remember it for a long time.

How will you remember your triple nine?
