Did you know that Beth and I have been together for exactly 20 years? Yep, 20 years ago, she picked me up in a college dorm bathroom. There's obviously more to the story but I'll just leave it at that for right now. But who knew, then, that we'd be the very picture of suburban domesticity?

Beth: You know, it would be nice if you learned how to use the garbage disposal.
Me: I kinda do. There's a switch there and everything.
Beth: But you don't use it. You see to think that the magical gnomes who live in the bottom of the sink take care of that for you.
Me: It would be awesome if it really worked that way.
Beth: As far as YOU know, it does.

Here's to another 20.

Happy Anniversary! Hubby and I have been together as a couple about 27 years. Our 25 wedding anniversary is in April.

Congrats. The 26th anniversary of the frat party where I met my wife is next month. I published the full story a few years ago - no reason you can't do the same ;)

But I swear there ARE magical gnomes in the sink. Unfortunately they also magically increase the amount of dishes piling up while I am at work.

Fuck gnomes.

I suggest you post a link to the very important story and then do a funny story about an anniversary that happened since then, but prior to the blog. Us old timers insist on being entertained!
