My Parents - Part One

After my parent's divorce, my dad was stationed at Henderson Hall, VA. It was there he met my future stepmom. Their first date was to tour Washington D.C.'s most beautiful sites.

When it came time to propose, my dad had it planned out. It was the Marine Corps' birthday, November 10th. The date was obviously special to my dad. However, taking another look at the date, it combined two numbers.... 11 & 10. My stepmom was born on May 11th and my dad on June 10th.

After the Marine Corps ball, my dad in his dress blues and his girlfriend in a gown, they went to Washington D.C.; specifically the Washington Monument. My father was anxious as he knew he was about to pop the question. All of a sudden, two secret service agents interrupted them. Noticing my father in his dress blues, they asked if he would briefly like to meet President Bush (senior). President Bush was doing a service there for the birthday of the Marine Corps.

What was my dad supposed to do? There he was, about to propose to his girlfriend and then he's offered the opportunity to meet the President?

Part Two tomorrow....

Geez, this sounds like a Friday cliff-hanger for a soap opera...
