Shauna and Charles both went to the same university for their undergraduate degrees, but somehow never bumped into each other. They had to wait many years later, until their local hospital hosted a Christmas party for medical school students that they finally met. Charles was fashionably late to the festivities and stood out from the crowd as he had a unique method of starting conversations ;)
Many months later, when Shauna was in London, Ontario for her clinical rotations and Charles was in Chicago, Illinois for his, he decided to make the drive to see her for the long weekend. Charles thought that if he demonstrated that he was dedicated enough to make the 700km journey (one way!) to see her for the weekend, then he would be able to win her affection and that she would become his girlfriend — and he was right! :)
Exactly 1,111 days later, Shauna finally returned home from an exhausting day of being on-call for 28-hours straight. She was so tired that she went straight to bed. While she was unconscious, Charles took the opportunity to change into his best clothes, lit a candle, and knelt down beside her bed. It’s safe to say that Shauna woke up pretty quickly once she realized what he was about to do!
