Dr. Blaine Interview

October 6th, 2015

Morningside’s English and Modern Languages Professor Patrick Blaine almost missed out on meeting his now wife.

Professor Blaine has a love for traveling around the world. Mexico, Puerto Rico, Spain, Vietnam, and Chile are just a handful of the places he has been to. He has even lived in Spain and Chile, so he is very fluent in both English and Spanish.

In Spain he discovered a love for the ocean. However, in Chile he discovered a love for a woman. In February 2001. Blaine went on a wooden church tour, which he didn’t really want to go on.

“I’ve seen enough churches in Spain,” he commented.

Turns out it was a good thing he went on this tour. The tour guide Monica, is now his wife.

“She said it was love at first site. For me it was more like flirting at first site,” said Blaine.

Both of them are big movie fanatics, so it seems fitting that there first date was to see a movie. The couple married on July 4, 2002. They stayed in Chile for a little while and then moved to the U.S. However, when they retire they would like to live back in Chile.

The couple is expecting their first child this coming February. It will be a boy. This child will be raised to be literate in both English and Spanish.
