We met at Vroman’s in 1993, upstairs before the area was re-arranged. In those days the store sponsored travel presentations, and that evening of August 2 we were both present for a slide show on Indonesia. We had casually noticed each other across the room during the program and later struck up a conversation over books, then met for coffee. Since then we have been together for over 23 years and married for eleven. Vroman’s will always be a special place to us, and we still celebrate our “meeting anniversary” along with our wedding anniversary. One of us given to compose limericks, came up with some words in memory of the occasion:

With some time in a bookstore to kill.
He met a nice chick
But had to ask quick.
She responded … “For coffee, I will“
