I think the longer you’ve been married, the further your anniversary day gets from anything moderately celebratory. A scene from this morning:
Husband: Did you feed the cat?
Wife: No, I’m getting Joe his waffle
Husband: how’s he doing?
Wife: the blisters on his butt are kind of better
Husband: Here’s a present that I got you that’s sort of for me
Wife Here’s a present that I got YOU that’s sort of for ME
Husband: Happy Anniversary
Wife: Happy Anniversary
(Earnest embrace that the wife quickly pulls out of)
Wife: WHY ARE YOU WET
Husband: I think my fever is breaking
HAPPY SIX YEARS TO US!!!!!!!!! HERE’S TO SIX MORE. There’s no real celebration but there’s love or none of us would even remotely be here.
