Today is our 43rd anniversary. I gave my husband the usual sappy, sweet card, but when I opened the one he gave me, instead of the kind that makes me cry, I got one that made me roar with laughter.
When I finally stopped laughing, hubby said, “Isn’t that so like us?”
“Us?” I asked, incredulously. “You mean it is so like you!”
We were sitting at the breakfast table, drinking our coffee and reading the morning paper as we do every morning. I looked through the stack of sections he had placed in front of me.
“Where’s The Daily Break?” I asked. That’s the section with the comics, about the only section I read. George always pulls it out for me and puts it in front of me. Not today. I looked through all the sections he had given me, but no Daily Break. I looked accusingly at the sections in front of him.”
“”Where’s my section?”
He stared at me. “What are you talking about?”
I again looked at the stack he had given me. There on top was The Daily Break.
Big grin on his smug face. “As I said before, that card is so like us.”
