Would your wife still be your wife if you were waiting in line for a Palm Pre at 7:45 when the wedding started at 8? My guess is no—but this guy has himself a very special lady.
On Saturday at 7 a.m., Theodore was 14th in line at an Atlanta-area Sprint store, fidgeting for his new Pre. His wedding was scheduled for 8 a.m. As much as Theodore wanted Pre, he wanted his bride, Anita, to see him at the altar at the appointed time. At 7:45, he abandoned his wait and left his line-number and credit card information with a Sprint store employee, asking that he "hold the 14th phone for me." The Sprint store employee obliged. Minutes after the recessional, the newlyweds returned to pick up their phone, spending the first minutes of married life with a Ready Now consultant who walked the happy couple through Pre's setup and features. The new Mrs. Travis later revealed that her reaction was "You did what?" to her husband spending the hour before their wedding waiting for a phone, but later admitted, "I guess I kind of understand now."
Oh Anita, wrap your arms around this dude and never let go. Nerds falling in love is a beautiful thing...but I give it six months. [Sprint via Pogue Original image via Myspace Graphics / Background image taken at U Village in Seattle last Friday night]
