They Shared a Drink— and Then the Future
By chance, I was sent to a conference in a nearby city. At the welcome reception, I reached for the same champagne glass as the man standing next to me. We struck up a conversation until dinner was called in the next room. The man asked to sit beside me. As the waiter passed, he turned to the man and said, “Sir, what would your wife like to drink?” The man looked to me and smiled. “Darling, what would you like to drink?” he asked. That was 20 years ago. We married a few years later.
