How neat, that you were in the same school! Hubs and I have a similar story, only ours happened during our undergrad. We attended the same school for four years and didn't meet until I moved away to do an internship. we had attended many of the same parties and knew lots of the same people, but never met. It's fun to have similar memories, lived out separately.

Omaha: That's very "When Harry Met Sally." :-)

I'm 4 years older than my hubby so we never ran with the same crowds. But I do remember being in a club once and this "punk kid" barged through me and my friends. Turns out it was my hubby--that was his "thing" (his way to talk to a girl). HA, it didn't work then but we ended up meeting years later.

Isn't it amazing to find out you crossed paths once with your future husband? These types of coincidences always make my mind spin...

That's funny - my husband and I went to the same high school, and although he's three years older then me, our paths overlapped frequently. (in that he dated all of my friends and I had a big crush on him). But it's certainly not as evocative as walking the same gradeschool halls everyday, maybe brushing by each other, unknowing.

And here's a crazy addition to the tale: Scott used to have a big, goofy black dog that used to follow him into school some days and race down the halls. When he told me about it again recently I suddenly remembered seeing a big black dog run into the library one day when I was in school! I swear I got chills thinking about it...

This was really fun to read, I love the way your lives crossed paths and the way you were able to hold 2 young children captive with your stories.

My parents were born in the same week at the same hospital, grew up one block away from each other, and mostly had the same elementary teachers. They began dating in 9th grade and have never given anyone else a second glance. Even their dogs were playmates. My dad would often drop mom off at her home after a date and find his dog on her porch. I love their stories too.

What a great story, Hetha! I love that their dogs were friends!
