"Just have dinner with him" she said

Today is a very special day.  

Do you know WHY today is a very special day?

I posed this question to my Angel of the Morning this morning and guess what her reply was?

"It's too frickin' early to play stupid guessing games, MOTHER."

Such a JOY she is in the morning, I tell you.

You're probably thinking that the answer to the question is "It's Earth Day!" or even "It's Good Friday!" both of which are good and technically correct answers neither has anything to do with WHY this is such a special day.

I'll give you a hint:
Yep.  22 years ago today, TheManTheMyth's Carefree Life as a Bachelor came to a screeching halt. 

And he still hasn't recovered.  If fact, if I want to see him cringe and wince, all I have to do is remind him that we've been married TWENTY TWO YEARS.  And I say it in a Very Dramatic and Ominous Voice.

It's fun to do that.

Being the Non-Romantics that we are, we'll be celebrating our TWENTY TWO YEAR anniversary the same way we celebrate Valentine's Day.  And by that, I mean we Don't.  Aren't.  Whatever.

I don't need a fancy gift or flowers from TheManTheMyth to know how much he loves me.

I KNOW he loves me; I tell him so every day.  I say, "You Love me!" and he recites back, "Yes dear" in a robotic voice.

See?  There's the proof RIGHT THERE.

I had no idea when I went to a friend's birthday party 24 years ago that I would be pestered all night long by some guy who just would NOT leave me alone.  He even threw himself at my feet so he could be in a picture:
I finally had to leave the party to get away from him.  About 2 weeks later, my sister tells me, "Keith wants to ask you out."  My answer?  "Who the hell is Keith?"

Once I figured out who she was talking about, I wasn't particularly interested because I had just come out of a long term relationship and really didn't want to date anyone.  My sister tells me, "Just have dinner with him, it's not like you're going to MARRY him."



  1. Lovely post. I like the pictures too.

    You brighten my day.

  2. Awww, you are so soft and sentimental. Heee!!

    And I have to say this: Cute Shoes!
    (the wedding ones, I mean. they are just too darn cute.)

  3. Love the 80s photos and hair! And you still have great cheekbones.
