Hmm…so the optional writing prompt was about fate and whether or not I believe in it. I’m not sure that I want to touch that one with a ten-foot poll…it does remind me of the story of how I met my husband though. If that was fate, it worked out pretty well 🙂
I have actually known my husband for about 20 years. Yup, we met when I was just about 14…in Israel, where he grew up and lived his whole life until I ‘imported’ him…but that’s another story entirely. I only have 5 minutes here, so we’ll do the nutshell version. I was in Israel for Passover vacation with my family, and Rafi, my now husband, was babysitting for a family that lived near my family in NY but had a second home in Israel. We were invited for a barbecue with another family and I met him…I have to say that I wasn’t particularly impressed. Another friend did end up ‘dating’ him for a while (in that 14 year old sense of the word, lol)
We kept in touch somewhat, and, when I went back to Israel to spend a year between high school and college (that year is a whole other story in itself), I had a horrible breakup with the guy that I was dating at the time and ended up in a rebound relationship. He went into the Israeli army, we dated exclusively long distance when I went back home, he moved to NY for college…fast forward a bunch of years, and here we are married with two kidlets. Fate, maybe so.
Is shameless promotion allowed in Stream of Consciousness? I guess it must be, because that;s what’s in my head right now. Have you seen my awesome monkey logo? My husband designed that. He even won a Graphic Design USA award for it. He left his job and is currently looking for a new one. Hear that folks? fabulous graphic designer looking for work…inclusing any and all freelance. check out his website at rafib.com
