She Might Just Be . . . February 13, 2017

At Couples Bridge the other night, my partner and I (who just started playing together) asked our various opponents how long they had played together.

The answers varied, of course, but my favorite by far is this gem:

“Bob & I have been playing bridge together for 50 years.”

“Really?”

“Yes, we started playing together in college . . . on our second date.  Our first date was a blind date.  Neither of us wanted to go.  We would rather have hung around the dorm or frat playing bridge . . . but off we went.”

At that point, her long-standing partner finished the story:

“When I returned to the frat after our blind date, one of my frat brothers asked, ‘Well, is she the one?’  I thought for a moment and said, “She might just be . . . she drinks Scotch, plays Bridge, and doesn’t fast dance.”

Aah . . . that’s perfect!

Happy Valentine’s Day to YOU!

What a sweet story 🙂

nrhatch - February 13, 2017

I loved it!

2. Val Boyko - February 13, 2017

Now that’s the secret of a long marriage 😉

nrhatch - February 13, 2017

Shared interests . . . and disinterests!

3. Jill Weatherholt - February 13, 2017

Great story!

nrhatch - February 13, 2017

And they’re still a cute couple.

4. Tina - Invisible Illnesses Blog - February 13, 2017

How cute!

nrhatch - February 13, 2017

They seem well-matched indeed!

5. Eric Alagan - February 13, 2017

She drinks scotch – of course, she is the one 🙂

nrhatch - February 13, 2017

I take it that drinking Scotch is a priority for you . . . 😀

6. Joanne Sisco - February 13, 2017

That sounds like a great foundation for a long term relationship 🙂

nrhatch - February 13, 2017

Yes! Relationships get started on “firm footing” with shared likes . . . and dislikes.

7. Kate Crimmins - February 13, 2017

Yikes! I guess that’s a basis for a long marriage.

nrhatch - February 13, 2017

For them, it is.

8. Ally Bean - February 13, 2017

Cute story. Romance was so much simpler back then.

nrhatch - February 13, 2017

For some people, probably.

9. llama30 - February 14, 2017

Happy Valentine’s Day!

nrhatch - February 14, 2017

To you (two) too!

llama30 - February 16, 2017

Haha! I am not really in a relationship so… I guess I’ll find someone soon!

nrhatch - February 16, 2017

Aah . . . then LOVE the one you’re with ~> YOU!

10. L. Marie - February 14, 2017

Love that! Happy Valentine’s Day! I’m so glad to return online after my computer broke! Thanks to a friend’s use of her son’s computer, here I am!

nrhatch - February 14, 2017

Welcome back! Glad you have a loaner to use ~ it feels odd when our computers are not at our beck and call.

Have a SWEET day!

11. Debra - February 15, 2017

Finding what works and sticking to it! That’s a good formula for a happy marriage. 🙂

nrhatch - February 15, 2017

Yes . . . with a few surprises tossed into the mix now and then to keep things “fresh.”

12. Bun Karyudo - February 15, 2017

That’s a cute story. It’s great that they’ve been playing bridge for 50 years, (although presumably not with the same hand). 🙂

nrhatch - February 15, 2017

Let’s hope not! Playing the same hand in perpetuity (while eating stale scones and drinking tepid tea at the Mad Hatter’s perpetual tea party) would be tedious.

Bun Karyudo - February 15, 2017

A bridge too far, I guess.

nrhatch - February 15, 2017

Just so!

13. Behind the Story - February 16, 2017

Theirs was the practical person’s “love at first sight.”

One of my daughters and her now-husband started playing bridge together soon after they met. They still play together now and then.

nrhatch - February 16, 2017

Sometimes something just *CLICKS* and we sense this is a person we should get to know better. For them, it’s worked out in the long run too.

Glad your daughter has a bridge partner when she needs one. 😀

14. Tiny - February 16, 2017

Aww, a great Valentine’s story ❤

nrhatch - February 16, 2017

That’s what I thought! A fun Valentine’s share.

15. roughwighting - February 16, 2017

Sometimes love is just that simple. 🙂

nrhatch - February 16, 2017

They hit on all cylinders . . . and are still BFF’s after 50 years and countless bridge hands!
