Back to reality... this is the first phone call I had with my now wife, Cinthia. We had met before; I was friends with her sister Andrea and her sister's (then) husband, Carlos. I met Cindy at their wedding, in January 1998. Or rather, I saw her there, she didn't know who I was, and she had a boyfriend at the time. Couple of months later, they broke up with the guy, we went out as a group a few times with her sister and other people to concerts and other stuff, and Andrea and Carlos insist that I give her a call and ask her out on a date (after I told her that yes, I found her sister hot).

I procrastinated, out of shyness, and ended up loosing her number. Andrea and Carlos kept insisting I call her, so I asked for her number again, and called her... and there you have it, up there in the strip, we talked for hours, and when I asked her out, I expected her to say "no"... but she didn't. We went out the following Saturday, and have been together ever since. We got married in 2002, we have a wonderful little boy, and I love her more and more every day.

What's funny about the whole thing is the following: She's a couple of years older than I am, and her sister and former brother in law are even older; and in fact, my brother and his wife were friends with Carlos and Andrea when I was like 12 (and I as well became friends with Carlos and Andrea afterwards), and Cindy (who I hadn't met yet) was about 15. They used to joke about me and Cindy ending up together, even though she had a boyfriend, and I was younger... and look how well that turned out!

Good Lord, there was so much great music released in 1998! It was almost impossible to choose, but I had to go with Lenny Kravitz "Fly Away", from the album "5", since I bought that one on my own dime with money from my first real job, and I listened to it over and over. As a matter of fact, Cindy and I used another song from this album to exchange rings at our wedding ceremony, "I Belong To You". So it's twice as special.
