Tell us about the moment you knew your spouse was "The One".
Did I ever tell you how Scott and I met?
Well.... I guess today's the day.
Scott and I met...
over the phone.
Not like that!
Scott ran the logistics department at Nortel.
(This was back in the day when Nortel was huge in Ottawa.)
I was the supervisor at a local courier company.
Scott would call several times a day,
in need of something going from his office
to one of the other Nortel offices.
And after talking to someone
six times a day,
the conversations always included a
"how's it going?"
"How was your weekend?"
The Easter before we met,
I was single,
doing the dating thing.
Scott called one day,
to have something taken to another office
and I reminded him that Easter was coming.
He didn't get it.
I had to explain that he just asked me
to ensure that something very important
reach another office.
And I wanted chocolate for Easter.
I'd like to point out that:
a) some things never change
b) I bugged a few people to send me chocolate.
A few months later I resigned from my job.
I was going back to school
to get my teaching certificate.
I wanted to meet the people I had spent
the last two years
chatting on the phone with.
Scott was one of those people.
We went on a few dates.
I liked spending time with him.
I had a box under my bed
I was looking through the box
and found the note Scott had sent me
with my Easter chocolate.
(Yes, he sent me chocolate.)
This was the moment.
I like to say
I knew he was the one
before we ever met.
Why else would I have kept his note?
I didn't keep notes from anyone else.
