i asked him his name at a concert. he told me, then asked me mine. i told him and walked away.
later i asked him if he was going to a show i was going to. he said yes. and then made plans to go.
i asked him to be my friend. and we were friends.and then i asked him every question i could think of because he was so interesting to me.
once i realized i was going to miss him so i asked if he would come say goodbye before he went home for the holidays. he said yes even though it was 3 o’clock in the morning.
when i asked him not to call me because i hate talking on the phone. he said ok and then my mom asked why my text message bill was $300 that month.
one time he asked me to a party. i said yes. he held my hand. and i didn’t care that he didn’t kiss me until he didn’t kiss me.
then i asked him to a party. he said yes. we danced. i kissed him. and then ignored him because i was confused.
he asked me on a date. i said yes. we laughed and talked and ate italian food.
he asked to keep dating me. i said yes.
i graduated. i moved and he traveled and we asked ourselves if we could do long distance. both said yes.
a year later i asked him to move to austin. he said yes and it was a perfect summer.
then he asked me to move to seattle. i said yes and it was an incredible four years.
at times things got rough. when he was convinced it wouldn’t work, i asked him to trust that i could love him better than anyone else. and he did.
and when i thought we were beyond repair, he asked me to trust that we could overcome anything. and i said ok.
one day he asked my dad for his blessing. and my dad made him sweat a little and then said yes. that same day he asked my mom for my great-grandmother’s engagement ring. of course she said yes.
then he asked me to be his wife. and i was so excited that i forgot to say yes. but then i said yes.
then we were asked if we did, and we both did, so we said ‘i do.’
that was four years ago today. and now i just ask myself how the heck did i get to be so lucky?
