Ten years

It was ten years ago today that Lisa and I -- battling sinus infections that we'd contracted the week before -- spoke our vows on the platform of the Bradley Beach train station. We were supposed to get married in a gazebo on the beach, but the torrential rain, being driven sideways by the wind, would have drowned the entire wedding party before we got to the first "I do." So we retreated to the train platform, which offered at least some shelter from the elements, and hurried to finish the ceremony before hypothermia could set in. The applause of the guests as I kissed the bride was drowned out by the arrival of a very loud commuter train.

Luckiest day of my life.

Congrats! :)

Makes my fight with my girl this morning look to be just a blip on a longer stretch, awful as it may have been.
