How I Met My Husband ❤️

Inspired by @ListPrompts
  1. A nice story for my very first list!
  2. And appropriate since his birthday is tomorrow
  3. I arranged to take the Light Rail to my mother's office after work, she was giving me a lift to pick up my cat from the vet.
  4. When I arrived at the stop near my office, I saw a nice looking guy who looked very lost - a handful of paperwork, looking around confusedly, comparing the nearby street signs to a map, etc.
  5. I went up to him and said "you look lost, can I help?"
  6. He said he wasn't lost, but was in town for a job interview and wanted to see what rush hour traffic was like.
  7. I said "oh, this is a bad example- it's rush hour, there's a baseball game tonight, plus lots of construction."
  8. He said "well, I'm from NY so this looks about average to me!"
  9. We got on the train and spent the whole ride talking about what life in Baltimore was like, good neighborhoods and bad neighborhoods, rent prices, etc.
  10. He really made me laugh a lot, and those brown eyes were killing me! 💗
  11. So as we approached my stop, I decided to gather my courage and asked how long he was in town (this was happening on a Tuesday). He said he was driving back to NY on Friday.
  12. I said "I have two tickets for Thursday night's baseball game, how would you like to see your future home team play?" ⚾️ He said yes!
  13. Unbeknownst to him, I didn't actually have the tickets yet! I had to go to work the next day and beg my boss for his tickets 🙏🏻
  14. Unbeknownst to me, he wasn't interested in baseball AT. ALL. but was willing to go to see me again!
  15. He didn't get the job he was interviewing for that day, but he did get a different one, finally moved to Maryland, and we recently celebrated our fifteenth wedding anniversary!
