Bob and Lana

The Smitten One
Life is full of quirky nuances. You know the cliches.
  1. Being in the right place at the right time.
  2. No matter where you go, There you are.
  3. Good things happen to good people.
  4. It is better to be Lucky than Good.
And on this lovely planet the fickle hand of randomness
is truly just that. Some may say it is in the cards and others
may say WHOA. How in the world did that actually happen.

From an analytical perspective lets look do the Math real quickly. There are 6.5 billion people on this planet, with a basic assumption that half are boys and half are girls what are the chances that a boy from the deep south would meet a girl from the from the Pacific Northwest.
About 18 billion to one.   (Give or take a billion)

Then You get over that 18 billion to one odds thing and actually meet.

What are the chances of making it to a second date.  (Multiply that by  the fact they met in pool room, in the dark of winter) and a third date, and that they would actually could effectively communicate with each other and actually like each other and that falling in love thing.

That's straight math with a sardonic touch of my own.

The world doesn't work in mathematical equations.

Back to life's Axioms -Which of these are true in this case?
  • Being in the right place at the right time.
  • No matter where you go, There you are.
  • Good things happen to Good people.
  • It is better to be Lucky than Good.
How about Really Fantastic people who were in the right place at the right time and were starry eyed and love struck enough .

The one axiom from above that does not exactly hold true is that it is better to be lucky than good. There is some luck involved but for now it is about being good and that is exactly what Bob and Lana are. Well not exactly they are great together.

There is hardly anything that Bob has not done. He has practically fixed most things in our house and he is always there to help. Today we learned he knows how to make a pineapple upside down cake.Unlike myself, Bob thinks things through and can be be calculated and analytical. Bob is a warm spirit and has a heart of gold. Add in Lana's angelic spirit, optimism and zest for life you have a couple destined for greatness.Getting here had some luck involved but moving on from here is all about being great, putting in the hard work that marriage requires and enjoying ones self.

I improvised here.

Bob and I were running down a hill today and I commented that this is like being a kid. And that's part of moving forward the ability to have fun and enjoy yourself and remembering the kid inside.
