Thank you profile for being one of our sponsors okay. So today is Valentine's Day whether or not you guys are listening to this on Valentine's Day or not. This is the Valentine's Day episode and I thought who better to have on the podcast on Valentine's Day. Then my beautiful wife Leslie. How're you doing? Honey how are you doing great first time ever on the PADRES team every? Thanks for having me to us. So here we are the podcast studios here in Prescott Arizona. Thought that we could just kind of tell everybody how this all happened. How you and I hooked up together and and a little bit of our history will reflect a little bit about what it's like to be a dental spouse about what it's like to be the spouse of somebody that's on the road a lot holding down the fort when I'm gone and all that all that deep stuff but some of the fun stuff I we've in San Diego back in nineteen ninety seven ninety eight ninety eight thousand nine hundred. Gosh we're getting old honey where reverse aging. It's yeah so that was back in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight. I was a kickboxing instructor. At several gyms around San Diego and I would go into gyms and I would teach classes and that I would leave and then I go into a different gym and teach classes that I would leave and this particular. Jim Was the twenty four hour fitness in Mission Valley Friars Road in San Diego and I would go in to this gym often and there is this cute girl up front always and I knew her by first name that and that was it occasionally. She would take the class but I would walk into this twenty four hour fitness. I said Oh. Here's this cute girl. Lesley how you doing she say hi but I never even though I was a single guy never thought to ask her out even though I thought she was really pretty because I thought for sure that she was less than eighteen years old at the time because because I was twenty five at time and you looked so young at the time ridiculously young so not much time. After that I bumped into at a club we were at canes in Mission Beach. And you're there with a group friends. I was there at the Group of friends and I was like. Oh my gosh. She's obviously older than eighteen. She's out of club later. Found out that she was there on a fake. Id but you were over eighteen. I was twenty. You're not technically twenty one with fake. I D I made it just so I saw her there and I pounced on my opportunity and right there and then at the club I asked you to go out to lunch and the next day we want to. I think it was like the following week or something committee plans for a Wednesday lunch. Yup and I had to work right afterwards. So remember having to wear my awesome twenty four hour fitness uniform the Purple Polo and those pants. That Swish Swish EP. Yep It was. It was April first of nineteen ninety eight. I was our first date and eight at Prego in mission valley which doesn't exist anymore exist anymore. There was a great launch. That's when we both had much less restricted diets right. Now I only eat plants and Leslie's kind of the same way minus gluten so we basically eat air and water. That's that's but it was a time a long time ago and Gosh when reflect back? It's hard to believe that that was like how long ago was that. That was twenty two years ago and went on our first day and it was such a simpler time It's hard to say you know If personally I just remember being a much different person than than I than I am now totally but at the time we felt like we had lots of things to be stressed about but looking back. It's like what were we stressed about. Back that yeah I mean I was a junior in college and worrying about midterms and my car not breaking down on the eighth free way which things like that. That that's where the biggest stresses I think for me at the time. So it's like after that first date. We were kind of inseparable and I was working as a wine. Wrap a sales rep for a wine company at the time And I had just gotten into dental school so I was like I was hell bent on not getting involved with anybody because I literally had. What April May June? I had three months before I was leaving for dental school when we met and I had been single for a long long time in San Diego and then ironically. I met the girl of my dreams three months before. I'm leaving this this town of San Diego and I think I remember being so excited to see you at canes and then you came to talk to me and I was like wow. He's wants to talk to me. And then our lunch date went so well and I remember distinctly at the end of lunch. You said by the way I just got into dental school. And I moving to Milwaukee Wisconsin in three months and I was like. How is that possible? I finally met like this guy. Hey that's so great. And has it all together and he's leaving whereas Milwaukee you were born and raised in California right Sacramento California then moved to San Diego. So you're nor cowgirls southern cal girl but never outside of California and we tried. We tried the long distance thing so I went away. I went away to dental school. I settled in had an apartment with a friend of mine and We maintain this long distance relationship. We really didn't know each other that well before we left right we. We spent every waking moment together for three months and then I went away for six months. This definitely like a honeymoon. Like yeah you know Rome like very romantic and Google Google area. We are still perfect to one another before."
