 Even when I got married, we never said it was going to be forever. It was a kind of practical decision. I don't think I ever thought of it as something that would be a huge deal. But every year we renewed. We decided not with an actual ceremony, but just said, 'Should we go through the next year?' Actually, I think it's a good relationship strategy. We should revisit this before we have children to see if everybody is still on the same page.

And at some point you pull the cord and you’re suddenly floating, and in your mind it makes absolutely no sense. But it’s exhilarating and terrifying at the same time. That’s where I am now.

 Somehow, my involvement was so absurd that people started investing money. The rest is history. It ended up being a really great idea because nobody had ping-pong plus a bar plus music plus really nice lighting.
