This day in history

I’m terrible about remembering important dates.

One month after getting married, guess who forgot his new bride’s birthday? Yep.

One year ago today, on May 17th 2008, I rose from my bed and walked to the bathroom. I looked into the mirror and noticed something new. In numbers far too many to ignore were distinctly white stubble on my chin. I thought to myself, “It’s May 17th. This will forever be the day I got white stubble on my chin.”

For some reason known to no one, THAT date stuck.
