Today is my Wedding Anniversary so naturally I was hoping to write something about that. The prompt that Michelle W. provided today made it tough (thanks Michelle).
I pondered my predicament and decided to twist things around like a pretzel. So… I thought I would interpret it as when I tried to quit being single. This allows me to write about my anniversary and still play “Daily Prompt”
You want to know if I went cold turkey or slowly worked my way into it.
I guess you could say I went cold turkey, because I was single, I said “I do” and then, I was no longer single. That seems pretty abrupt. That seems pretty “cold turkey”.
We didn’t really go for the gradual change, although we did travel together for about a month before tying the knot – I don’t think that counts as easing into it.
Did it stick? So far it has. But it’s only been a few years. The adventures we have had together and the continuing adventures we look forward to; make it all worthwhile.
Here are some of the remarks I have gotten when I tell people that I am celebrating my 40th anniversary.
- That’s soooo unnatural.
- You? Really?
- Nicely done.
- You did it right.
- And they said it would never last.
- Take a trophy spouse the first time… I like that.
- That’s really cool.
- How did you ever find someone to put up with you that long?
- I had to get married three times to even approach that mark.
Thanks honey, I couldn’t have done it without you. Love ya much!
