Keeps On Ticking

Yesterday was my 10 year year wedding anniversary.

It may sound a bit like something I got out of a Hallmark card, but I honestly can't believe its been 10 years.

10 years ago yesterday, I was standing outside in a tux, in a 105 degree heatwave sweating my ass off, while we took our wedding pictures.

10 years ago, my grandparents were still here to share my day with me.

10 years ago I didn't have a mini-me to follow me wherever I go.

How could so much have happened in 10 years when it feels like just yesterday?

I give Friz alot of shit within these pages, but the truth is, as hard as it might be for you all to believe, i'm not the easiest person to live with. So, for her, yesterday was probably more like finishing her 10th consecutive tour of duty. But for some reason, she honestly appears to be happy with me, and seems willing to give it a go for another 10. Yay me!

Anyway, I know that the video below has been burning through the internet at the speed of light this week, and you've probably all seen it already, but dammit if the pure goodness and fun of it all doesnt just come through and give me a warm and fuzzy feeling.



P.S. Reading this back, i fully realize that this was way too sappy for the likes of me. I promise to counter this by getting back to my roots with some good dick jokes in my next post.

p.p.s. Those Rascally folks at Youtube disabled the original video from being embedded. Lets try it now. This will probably not stay up too long either but what the Hell?

I actually have been living under a rock, as I am apparently the only person who has not seen this video! Happy anniversary to you and Friz...

terri said...

Happy Anniversary! May there be many, many more. And for the record, I like to see your sappy side now and then.

I love this video too. I know everyone has seen it, but it's worth sharing over and over. I actually felt a little choked up at the point where the bride came in.

It is once to see you get sappy every once in a while.

I had not yet seen that video. I would have LOVED to be a part of that wedding.

So much more fun thatn the standard boring stuff. I smiled the entire time I watched it.


Here's to many many more years with her.

Happy Number Ten.

I am heading for number 19 in January. It's pretty good if you pick the right one at the beginning. I figure it must be very tough if you don't.

Hey, wow, it will be my ten year anniversary this year, too! Clearly, ten years ago was when the moon aligned with the stars to produce the most AWESOME MARRIAGES EVER.

Happy Anniversary.
