Gobstopper is LOVE

This is what I found when the kids and I went to the mall a few days ago.

It's not always that Candy Corner offers this.  I got too excited and bought two boxes.

Ze husband and I owe our history to Gobstopper.

Senior high:
We weren't a couple back then, we were just constant buddies.  We'd take lunches together.  We share food and even the drinks.  He would call me up on the phone once we get home and talk for hours with dinner as our breaktime then talk again.  And in between, we were textmates.

All that and several boxes of Gosbtopper.  We bonded over it.  We were having so much fun as friends.  We enjoyed each other's company and learned a lot more about ourselves and we talked about the past.

Then one day, it just happened.
We were celebrating his birthday with friends. It was October 30, 2000.
We realized that we couldn't stand being apart from one another anymore.  We learned that we are so alike in so many ways and we agree to disagree over some stuff too. 
Then we talked about what could possibly happen should we decide to take our relationship to the next level. I asked him how sincere he was and why he thinks/ feels we should be together officially.  I can still remember his face and what we wore.
A few days before that he already "proposed" to me and in year 2000, mobile signal wasn't that stable yet.  I was close to crying because I couldn't reply to him.  The next day, he called me up as if nothing happened the previous night. Tss.

On October 30, 2000, around 4:30 in the afternoon.  I accepted his proposal.  When I gave him my answer, we laughed.  We laughed so hard, as in.  It's a secret why we laughed.  I don't think we shared that part of the story to anyone.  It's such a PRECIOUS joke/ misinterpretation that we still laugh about up to this day.

2010, a start of the new decade.

It's been a roller coaster ride.  It's not been easy but FUN.
We still get cheesy over gobstopper and everything else that remind us of our past.

I can't believe it's been 10 years. That was incredibly fast.

Reason why I'm looking forward to 10.30.2010
Hopefully, ze husband will be here.  We could probably do something together.  I'm not expecting something fancy.  As long as it's meaningful and we're together.
