Christie turns 23 on Saturday, & since I'm lucky enough to see her tomorrow & Saturday this is the last chance I'll get to embarrass her on the internet.
Whenever I talk about something that happened in the past with Christie, I always tend to refer to how old I was the year it happened & then I figure out the math of how old she was. For example, the year I got my driver's license was 1995. I was 16, Christie was 11. 1984 was the year the last year the Detroit Tigers won the World Series. I was five, Christie was...well Christie was alot younger than five.
None of that matters, of course, until you fast forward to 2006. I was 26 at the time, she was 22 & it was the last time we had a dart tournament. I don't remember who won the dart tournament, but I do remember that it was the first time I met Christie. She claims that I didn't talk to her too much that evening, which doesn't surprise me, I'm kind of shy about these things.
Almost a year later she still puts up with me even though I rarely let her listen to her country music in the car, & it's been one of the happiest years of my life.
For those of you unfortunate souls who don't know her, let me tell you a few things about her.
-She hates movies with sad endings.
-She loves ketchup, & will put it on just about anything.
-She loves country music, & once, when I came over to her house, she had the song "Stupid Boy" by Keith Urban on repeat for about an hour & still wasn't tired of it.
-She loves dogs, if she sees one walking by she says with a high pitched voice "0oooh!" & gets excited at the prospect of petting it.
-She loves the beach, the public one.
-She's been to three different continents, but has not yet fulfilled her dream to visit Fiji.
-She loves to clean & organize, & I, being the faithful boyfriend that I am, give her the opportunity to do so on every occasion (okay, maybe it doesn't work quite that way).
-She likes helping people, she once drove all the way back to Grand Rapids to give some lady she didn't know $40 for a place to stay & a bag of chips.
Everything else you'll have to find out for yourself. Happy Birthday, Christie, I love you! "You're so embarrassing!" Okay, I'm sorry.
