I wanted to take a moment to congratulate two special people in my life for reaching a milestone. My Mom and Dad were married eight years ago today. Since I am only a little baby, eight years is a hard thing for me to comprehend. My parents have been married:
And just of the novelty of it: 1 Octennial and 208.571428571 Fortnights. (I do not know what these are)
That is a lot of fortnights. All that this shows me is that my parents have been married a really long time. Look at all those seconds! Neither of my sisters were born when my parents were married so they cannot tell me about it and I was certainly not there. I wish I was, I heard it was a rocking good time!
|I can't belive that my Mom would date|
someone who looked like that, even if
he eventually becomes my dad. Geez,
Look at that hair. My lord.
Being under two, it is very hard to buy a present for my parents. But I researched what I would get them if I could buy them something. I just want to put on the table that people are stupid. Look what I found while researching.
The traditional eighth wedding anniversary gift is bronze. Is this like a third place finish? Congrats, you got to bronze. Nice job.
The modern gift is an appliance. “Dear, I love you. I have loved you for eight years. Take this toaster as a sign of my affection.” Or "I love you almost as much as clean sheets. Here is a new washer and drier. Get started." I guess you do have to be married to someome for a while before you can get away with giving him or her an appliance as an anniversary present. That takes chutzpah.
Apparently they should also take a specific trip based on what anniversary number they are on. The eighth anniversary trip is to a Casino. (I feel there are some good jokes that could go in here, but I am not brave enough to type them. Use your mind to think them up.) Shouldn’t that be the 7th or the 11th anniversary? I digress...
So Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad! I love you both and hope you have a really good day.
