How Grandma & Grandpa Met

It was the spring of 1947. She worked as a nurse at Providence Hospital in DC. He was a patient, waiting to get his tonsils out. The orderly was off that day, so she had to go down to St. John’s Hall, the men’s floor, to bring him in for surgery. She checked his chart and learned that he was entering the police academy. He joked about it, and she joked right back. He asked her out on a date. She said she didn’t think she could do that. They flirted all the way to the surgery room. He was a talker. The doctor told him to stop talking. He said he wouldn’t stop until he got the nurse’s phone number.

The surgery was on a Thursday. He called her on Friday. On Saturday, the two went out on their first date to see the cherry blossoms.
