Forever Better

Twenty-five years ago today, December 2, 1984:

  • Ghost Busters was the top-grossing movie
  • The A-Team was NBC’s top-rated TV series
  • Hall & Oates had the number one Billboard single Out Of Touch
  • Ronald Regan was the US President

None of these facts changed my life. But something else that took place on that day did. On December 2, 1984, I went on my first official date with Betsy Coffield. My first girlfriend—my only girlfriend—and still my best friend.

Neither movies, TV, music, nor politicians have changed my life, but I’m forever a better man because Betsy said, “Yes.” I love you, babe. Here’s to the next 25 years, which will be even better!
