Five years ago today Toby Joe and I eloped to Niagara Falls. This is strange to me because it seems like it was just yesterday.
But Toby Joe probably doesn’t believe me when I say that. He doesn’t even think I know when we were married let alone what happened that day. He twittered this the other night.
I have always had trouble with the date because there are too many small numbers. (We were married on 01-03-04.) I always want to switch them around. And sometimes I just want to add in a DAMN TWO ALREADY!
I told him, “If I had the money, I’d buy us both bamboo silverware, since this anniversary is about wood and cutlery.”
And he said, “Well, actually, bamboo isn’t a wood. It’s a type of grass.”
So I think I’ll just find a stick with a few extra branches and beat him with it.
Due to insufficient funds this year, I think we’ll have to honor wood some other way.
