"Love." On the campus of Schreiner University, Kerrville, TX, April 2011.

This is a true story about two dates, February 1, 1997, and February 1, 2012:

This is on the campus of Schreiner University, in Kerrville, TX. Fifteen years ago, that tree wasn’t there, and the room behind it was a small rec room. Fifteen years ago, I was on my way to that rec room to set up a party the student newspaper was hosting. There was a beautiful girl with amazing legs standing exactly where that tree is now. I talked to her; she talked to me. Later we swapped addresses and phone numbers. Fifteen years later, there’s a tree in that very spot, as though to commemorate the meeting, and I’m married to that beautiful girl with the amazing legs.

And she’s even more amazing today.
