Friend-Makin' Mondays

I love All That is Good on Mondays (well, all the time, but ESPECIALLY Mondays) because it's Friend-Makin' Mondays!!!

The question for today.

How did you and your significant other meet? and if you don't have a significant other at the moment then what would be your dream way to meet him?

So, I was 14 and he was 15.  (Awhile ago, right?)  He was a drummer and I was a trombone player at that time.  I was friends with his sister and...the first memory I have of him is nearly sitting on his lap because his friend was dropping me and my friend off at that girl's house.  Later that night, in true teenager-fashion, I threw water on him (not THAT much, but a little) and then went to his house for the band bonfire.  They dared me to kiss him, but...come on!!  I'd never kissed anyone before!!  So I kissed him on the cheek and he ran away.  I tried to find him, but I couldn't.  When he came out of the shadows (he was hiding behind his house), we talked for the rest of the night.  His dad asked who this girl was he was talking to and we ended up talking to me the next day on AIM.  He came with me to TubaChristmas and we've been together since!!!  We just celebrated our second year of marriage and this year, we'll have been together for 10 years.  

We've been through so much together.  I don't know what I'd do without him.  Who else would watch Spongebob with me?  Or play Scrabble?  Or wrestle me when I'm feeling ridiculous?  Who else would indulge my fantasies to move to Australia or to go to South Africa for fun?!  God has truly, TRULY blessed me with him.  :)
