Today is the tipping point of my life.
The Wife and I started dating on 17 December 1992.
(The picture above, which is an iPhone picture of an actual picture, is from that era)
I was born on 28 March 1973.
There were 7,204 days from the day I was born until the day we started dating.
Today marks 7,204 days since then.
As of tomorrow, I will have spent more of my life with you than without you, and my only regret is that we didn’t meet sooner.
Well, either that, or that it took you a year to realize that I was crazy about you. And then took us two months to figure out that we both felt the same way. But that’s water that passed under the bridge 7,204 days ago.
~ Your Tipping Point ~
By the way, since I’m guessing you’re wondering now, there were 7,286 days from your birthday (5 Jan 1973) to 17 December 1992, which means that your “tipping point” will be November 28th, 2012.
(Not to be confused with “half-way-through-a-Margarita” which is your tipsy point.)
~ Historical Significance? ~
Also, in case you’re wondering if anything else of significance happened on December 17th, yes!
According to the New York Times, in 1969 an estimated 50 million viewers watched singer Tiny Tim marry Miss Vicky on NBC’s “Tonight Show”
…on December 17th, 1989 the animated TV series “The Simpsons” premiered on Fox.
Anyway, this has been a nerdy way of saying I love you, and I hope there are more days ahead than I can even count.
Congratulations! Also, you were Steve Jobs in the ’90s.
