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.”
Happy belated anniversary! I’ve gotten a bit behind in blog reading…
The power of denial! 😀
Absolutely! Well put.
I laughed out loud at the card! I can relate 100%.
Cheers to you and your hubby!
Thanks, LWTTD. I love that you and I had the same reaction.
I cook dinner and put our portions on the plates before bringing them to the table. After all our years together, we still both get out the plates, cups, and fork out and set them on a counter. Even if one of us says out loud that we got them. For some reason, one never “sees” what the other did. People are so funny.
Old habits are hard to break, Adela. I think forgetfulness has become a habit!
Fantastic Susan. Happy anniversary and that George is certainly something and worth keeping. XX
Thanks, Judith. Yes, I sure do appreciate what I have!
Happy Anniversary! 43 years, that is cause for great celebration! Thank you for sharing your morning with us. We had our 40th last month…. Hope you have many, many more. ❤
We celebrated big time for our fortieth, DAF. Congratulations to you. It is quite a milestone.
Happy Anniversary! In my house, we usually say, “Where did you put the butter?” 😉
Happy Anniversary! Great card.
Thanks, CG. It certainly is perfect for the two of us.
My granddaughter cannot seem to find anything – and it’s usually right in front of her!
Our whole family has experienced this phenomena much too often…
Must be a disturbance in the Force.
Very cute and sweet! Happy anniversary! 🙂
Happy Anniversary you two!
Thanks, Carol. I miss your writing.
Cute story! (ALTHOUGH, it’s my thinking that sometimes there are little “imps” who play tricks on us, and move things around that we’re looking for!) Like, butter or newspaper sections.
And that section is my favorite too! I save it for evening when I can read the comics (LOVE Baby Blues, Red & Rover and Zits) and work the puzzles.
Yes, imps! You see it, too! And Baby Blues and Pearls Before Swine are my favorites.
Happy Anniversary, Susan! So funny 😀
Well, if you ask me one of the secrets to a long marriage is being able to laugh together, so you win! What’s the prize? Another fun year with your hubby. Enjoy your special day!
Thanks, Mama. We’ve had a lot to laugh about over the years.
Happy Anniversary! See you next weekend.
Hahaha Too fun. Happy Anniversary! Celebrate well! 🙂
Are you laughing at me, E.C.?
I’m laughing with you. You & your husband remind me of me & my husband (of almost 37 years). Thank goodness you & I have husbands who’s sense of humor is still giving us smiles and happiness after all the decades together. 🙂
Love to hear that, E.C. Laughing together is so healthy for a relationship, and when you can laugh at yourselves, you never run out of something to laugh about.
