10 Whole Years

Today is the day that marks the fact that I have been legally married to the same man for ten years. (!) Does that mean that before I was illegally married? (eyebrow raise). Perhaps..

Anyway.

The following demonstrates how important this day is to the both of us:

Scene: The house is quiet. Rich and Jack are asleep. Ginger is awake, the only time she gets to herself, and checks email.

Ginger: (silently reads the words "Happy Anniversary!" in an email from her mom)
(under her breath, to herself) Anniversary? Today? Is it the 25th?
(checks her calendar)
Huh. It is.
(walks to bedroom where Rich is asleep and sits on the side of the bed; whispers) Rich. Wake up, Rich! Hey. Happy Anniversary, Rich!

Rich: (groggily) Oh yeah. That is today. Ten years?

Ginger: Yeah. Weird, huh.

Rich: Yeah. Hey. Maybe later, when Jack is asleep, we could celebrate our love by, you know..............................taking a nap.

As in seriosly, lets take a nap.

And Scene!

10 years, it's been, folks.

Wow! You too? Our ten year anniversary is coming up on August 8th. 1998 must have been a good year. Happy Anniversary!

Congrats, you two. I remember that gorgeous day when you wed alongside a West Texas Canyon. I'm glad I could be there. Here's to the next 10 years!

PS -- I'm sure if you weren't the sleep-deprived parents of a 1-month old, you wouldn't celebrate by taking a nap.

Mark said...

i think nap is a euphemism. or maybe an acronym (Er, Naughty And Pokey?) or did i say too much..

Scene indeed. It's a wrap!

LOL

Ginger said...

Ok. See, Mark, that kind of thinking is what got us into this mess.. :D
