Veeder: Loving the same man for more than half my life

Email

I married a boy I met in band class when I was 11 years old. I came in from country school to play the saxophone with the town kids, and there he was, sitting a few chairs down playing saxophone, too.

Only he wasn't faking it.

I was.

I was a terrible saxophone player.

If memory serves me right he got sent to the principal's office that day, but he'd never admit it. That boy turned into a great man, but he was a handful as a kid.
