We both forgot, I confess. Neither of us have been looking at the calendar. We didn’t remember. We missed Lessa’s birthday saving our reputations only by driving up there gift in hand. Yesterday was our wedding anniversary. G saved it by running upstairs late in the afternoon, and returning with a saved gift.
Frankly, I was a lump of forgetfulness.
We celebrated the day we met for our first 12 years together. 1983…now 30 years ago in May. The only reason we married was that I no longer received free medical insurance. If we married, I would have insurance through the Geezer’s job. So unromantic.
It was serendipity that we went out to dinner and a really good movie with friends Saturday. It was a perfect celebration of an anniversary if we had but known. We laughed at ourselves, rather wryly, last night. Perhaps next year one of us will look at the carefully limned lines of dates. Katy: Birthday. Nathan: Birthday. Lessa: Birthday. Chalandra: Birthday. Mikey: Birthday. Us: Anniversary: 1996.
