“Nice Catch”

best of surprising

My father told me that he knew he loved my mother when he went to catch her throw up after a night of heavy drinking. After being convinced that that was what love was all about, I decided it wasn’t something I was willing to try. Years later, I found myself with a handful of boogers and a smile on my face. It wasn’t quite throw up, but frantic moment spent diving after that sneeze was enough to make me realize that I had found love.


Postscript: After two years, we’re still together and looking for an apartment.

Postscript: We’ve been together for 9 months, and he’s my first love.
