As some of you may already be aware, Col. Mustard* and I have been married for 5 years. Our church decided to have a mass celebration of marriage this year: anyone who is celebrating a significant anniversary (which they defined as a year ending in 5 or 0, or anything over 50) would get to celebrate mass together, get a fancy certificate, have a festive luncheon with sweet little finger sandwiches, and have a complimentary anniversary photo taken. Being a total sucker for succulent finger sandwiches, I signed us up.
I did not know that in order to get free sandwiches, we would need to renew our vows. Uh oh. For realz? I already did this once! Does this mean I’m going to have to put out tonight? Cuz I got tricked into that once before, and I’d like to think that I’m on to that whole wedding game, now. You can’t fool me twice.
But then I looked at my husband, my dear, sweet husband who gets up with our son every morning and lets me sleep until 8, who buys me yummy chocolates out of the blue, who cleans up around the house, who supports my knitting and internetz addictions, and who loves me anyway.
I guess putting out once in a while is worth it.
*Tony has mentioned that it would be cool if he takes on my alias, so as of now he is Col. Mustard. As in Clue. As in Col. Mustard in the conservatory with the knife. Not that he’s into that sort of thing.
