Because today is Mommie and Papa Dark's tenth wedding anniversary! The MIL took us out to dinner last night; it was very nice. Today I get to go see my sister!!! I will spend the afternoon with her and catch up on stuff. This is the nicest anniversary present PD could give me. (We have to borrow a car to go since ours is too rickety to trust for the ride. It's not a simple thing to pry Mommie out of her cave these days and hurl her across the planet's face at 60 mph... PD's efforts are pretty heroic IMO, and I love him for it.)
Those of you who know the Dark family tale can appreciate the gawky awe with which I mark this occasion. The rest of you must take my word that to some minds, our relationship is incomprehensible and bizarre, and the fact that the resulting marriage has lasted this long and stayed this strong (and fun!) is a testament to the stubborn tenacity of the highly eccentric. To those minds, I say this: PHHHBBBBTHPPBB!!! (raspberry sounds) Eccentric maybe, but who cares when we have this bliss?
Off to prep for the big day's events,
PS even the JWs here can say 'happy anniversary'without shuddering! Isn't it nice when we can all get along?
