Four years ago today, Brianna lived with two roommates Jeremy and
Lyndi. I also had two roommates Michael and Frederick. Jeremy and
Frederick worked together at Structure.
Frederick and I had just returned from a trip to Kansas City where
Julie had convinced me to lose the polo shirts and to color my hair
blond. She also talked me into a wardrobe of ‘Sexy Pants’.
Jeremy lost a bet with Brianna and needed to arrange a hook-up for the
single Brianna. Frederick thought that someone should be
me. Photographs were exchanged followed by phone numbers. I called
Brianna and arranged for our first date on Tuesday July 27, 1999.
Our first date consisted of dinner at [Carrabba’s] and desert at
[Amy’s Ice Creams] at the Arboretum. A year later, on this day,
Brianna and I again went to dinner at [Carrabba’s] and desert at
[Amy’s Ice Creams]. After desert we walked around the park at the
arboretum and I asked Brianna to marry me.
