Remember the assless chaps from anniversary number three, our “leather” anniversary?
Well, today marks our Fourth Anniversary — the “Appliances” Anniversary. (No, I’m not making it up.)
Who the hell thinks up these things? (Sears and Walmart, I expect.) In this “credit crunch” edition, here’s what I predict our upcoming anniversaries are likely to celebrate:
- Five. Unnecessary Electronics Anniversary. (“Dear, I got you a touchscreen iBlender!”)
- Seven. Mid-Life Crisis Anniversary. (“And what’s in the trunk of your new sports car? Right! A model train set!”).
- Eleven. Mortgage Anniversary. (“Two loans good, three loans better!“)
- Fourteen. The Bankruptcy Anniversary. (“Honey, we’re going to have to sell your braces back to the orthodontist for scrap metal. Sorry.”)
In all seriousness, though, I like anniversaries for the obvious reason: they remind me of how much I have to celebrate:
All petty complaints go away when I look at a picture like that and remember the day.
I’m a lucky guy.
