Next week we can talk about the business side of McSciFi. Today, I thought I’d share a glimpse into the personal part of my multiverse. On September 4, 2016, I agreed to meet a girl I’d met on Facebook and have a couple of drinks. I showed up and she was running a tad late. There were two birthday parties going on in the bar and, while I waited …. and waited ….. and waited …., each party would buy me a shot every time they bought a round. By the time Kim arrived two hours later I’d drank a fifth of Absolut and was lit like the Christmas tree in Daley Plaza.
Even so, I managed to splash my face with water, go outside to have a smoke, remind myself what consonants sounded like, and begin a conversation. The person she’d enjoyed online was still in there somewhere, buried under the rotting vestiges of what was left of my squishy brain. One thing led to several others and we finally agreed to take a break, maybe even thirty or forty cold showers, for a couple of weeks, and then get back together like functioning adults. That was on a Sunday.
By Tuesday she was back in my arms and we’ve been together ever since.
Like any relationship there have been good times and bad, easy moments and hard, but we supported each other through all of them, never doubting those decisions.
If you’d like to see the ceremony, just to prove I really did it, CLICK HERE to see the video our church streamed of the event. There will be professional images up next week and I will provide a link to them.
For now, JUST ENJOY THE VIDEO and know that you have our deepest gratitude for all the support you’ve given through the years. You are just as much a part of this as anyone.
Stay safe and sane and I’ll see you next week.
