Yesterday was the 26th anniversary of the day I asked Amy out. Yesterday was also the day the server failed to save our post explaining the gamble that was the day that Amy said “Yes!”.

Scott and I had known each other for a couple of months and had talked about going out. I knew that Scott might ask me out soon, but I didn’t know when. I thought Scott might ask me out as part of a conversation.
Today is the 26th anniversary of the day I asked Amy out.
Today Amy and I wrote a sweet piece about the gamble she took when she said “Yes.”
Unfortunately, the gamble that I wish that I didn’t take was to hit the “Save” button without copying and pasting into another document. The server was down and we lost everything.
Amy: I’m sorry.
Scott: Wanna rewrite it.
Well there you have it.
We laughed, and then we laughed again when I typed “We laughed”.
We will (re-)tell the rest of the story tomorrow.

Life is filled with risks.
Should I buy this present?
Should I give this panhandler money?
Should I invest in this mutual fund?
Should I buy this house?
Should I choose this school?
Should I leave this job?
Should I ask her out?
Should I say “yes”?!?
What gamble are you always willing to take?
