The Importance of High School Drama - Day 6

(Mr. Anderson is the third from the left)

I never thought I'd end up owing so much to my High School drama teacher, but alas, here I am writing a blog post dedicated to him. Let me put it bluntly, if it weren't for Mr. Anderson, I would not be married to John today. Why? Because Mr. Anderson invited me to take intermediate drama class the second semester of my freshman year. John, being a senior at the time, happened to be in the same class that I was in. Although Mr.  Anderson most likely had no clue about the major crush I had on John, he persuaded John and me to take a drama scene we performed together to a regional competition. This of course lead to a good friendship which became a beautiful marriage.

A few months after we were married, we ran into Mr. Anderson in a parking lot holding hands. He seemed a bit shocked that two of his High School drama students were now married. He congratulated us and then we thanked him for being responsible for our congratulations. I'm sure it was probably the best moment of his teaching career (I'm teasing). Such a fun love story though. I will post more of the details about it later when I write my post on my sweet husband. But for now, Thank-you again Mr. Anderson for selecting me for intermediate drama in January of 2003! It really did change my life.  : )
