My Best Friend

My Best Friend — My now-husband and I started as friends. He had a girlfriend, and I wasn’t looking for anything at the time. I would take him grocery shopping once a month, and he would barbecue dinner for me. We would sit outside and drink beer and talk about everything and anything.

Beer was our first thing in common. That’s how we first met; he bought beer and walked into the store I was working at to get coffee and a nutty bar. I teased him and said, “oh, you brought me beer for after work!” We started talking, then I started taking him for groceries, and the rest is history.

He broke up with his girlfriend (it was a long-distance relationship). I cooked for him that time and brought a six-pack over so he could vent. Seven years later, we’re still best friends and going on five years married.
