I've been married for 10 years today, and my tale is Mac-related

10 years ago today, Mrs. Poochie and I tied the knot in a small church down the block from our apartment. A decade later, I have a house, a son and lots more debt.

We got engaged on March 17, 1997 (my wife comes from an extremely Irish family and I planned on doing some major butt-kissing of my future inlaws). The future Mrs. P. worked on Wall Street at the time (she is now a public school teacher....sigh) and I asked her if we can spend her annual bonus on a pimped-out Power Computing PowerCenter running Mac OS 7.5.

"If you get me a new Mac, then you never know what I'll get you," I would say with a hint of suavity in my voice.

So when the new computer arrived, I asked Ms. P to go inside the huge box and "get me one of them fancy cables."

Inside the box was a smaller box with an engagement ring. She found the ring and called me something that can only be described as unprintable.

As long as the ring didn't end up there, you've done alright. :-)
40 more to 50.

LOL, suavity...

...okay, I chuckled, I just couldn't picture it.

Sounds like that ended up as a really expensive pimped-out Power Computing PowerCenter.
