Thanksgiving with my family: The Epilogue

We asked my grandma to tell the story of how she and my grandpa met.

It was a blind date. She and her girlfriend had been set up with two guys to go to a new years party. Grandma said she nearly stepped over her friend so that she could have my grandpa because the other guy was really short and grandpa looked like Jimmy Stewart.
The party was at my grandpa's apartment on the 10th floor. Grandma got rip roaring drunk and threw up over the balcony. She then stumpled into my grandpas room and passed out on his bed. When she woke up, a girl said to her "Nice to meet you Nancy, I hope to see you again when you grow up."
They were married 4 months later. They've been married 58 years.
