How I met my wife

For work, I'm working on an expert system to interview the user about their family; one of the questions is "How did you meet your wife?". I wrote up an answer for it, then realized I should post it here.

I first saw her at a Crosston meeting, in June of 1996. I didn't think much about her at the time; but, over the summer, I got to know her better, mostly on the Crosston mailing list, and came to realize that she was something special.

In fact, I can remember the specific thread that made me realize that. Someone said, "Always practice safe sacks.", and Cynthia replied, "Right. Only sack condominiums.". I just laughed at it; but then klwilliams posted, "This is why I believe that people who don't know Cynthia are missing something special."...and I realized she was right.

(I could probably dig up that message, in fact; I don't delete email. However, remembering where I received it, it's probably on a Zip disk somewhere. I've still got a couple of Zip drives, but neither of them is hooked up to a live machine.)
