See Thru

Fifteen years ago today, about at this moment, I was at the grocery store buying plastic forks.

What? You don't remember the days you go buy plastic forks? For shame! What a big carbon footprint you must have Grandma!

Of course, my memory is that good because today is my and Justin's anniversary. Fifteen years ago I discovered I didn't have enough forks for my outdoor reception. Or mints. One must have plenty of mints on hand for a reception in Utah or else the marriage isn't valid. I really had nothing else to do until about 3 pm (unlike my soon to be husband) so I hopped into my car, went to the grocery store I worked at and bought several packages of clear plastic forks and Andes mints.

I may go buy clear plastic forks today. The fifteenth anniversary is the crystal anniversary.

Do they call it the crystal anniversary because fifteen years is a good time to look at what was, what is, what may be, with the help of a lens? I sure hope not. I rather hope it means that we are "sparkly" instead of "handle with care or else you'll drop it and it will shatter you doofus".

So, today is my sturdy, clear, dishwasher safe, plastic fork anniversary. Only the rest of my life to go.

I love you Justin.

  12. OOoo i'm a day late but happy anniversary!!

    Plastic forks are good.

    You can stab an annoying person with them and not end up doing 3-5 with wild eyed Bertha in Cell Block C.
