How I Met Your Mother

Extracts from this document...


How I Met Her It was sometime in 1968. I was happily on my way back to my house after successfully proposing to my long-time girlfriend of 6 years. I felt happy; my thoughts then was' I was going to marry the woman of my life'. Nothing at that time could have spoiled my happiness. I thought wrong. I busied my thoughts with that of my girlfriend, of our soon-to-come wedding and more importantly, our future together. Too busy thinking those thoughts, I didn't realise the blind man in front of me. I accidentally collided with him, causing him to fall. At first, I felt annoyed.
