You've got the cool water, when the fever runs high.

Anyone who tells you that an beautiful, stunningly smart Philly girl who loves science, documentaries, knitting and Broadway musicals can't get along with a math-impaired, sports-obsessed Boston boy who loves video games, comic books, punk music, and science-fiction movies... Well, let me tell you a story.

About twelve years ago, I did the smartest thing I've ever done. I ignored the voice in my head that told me it couldn't work.

About nine years ago, I did the dumbest thing I've ever done. I broke up with her because I was scared. It only took her a few weeks to talk me out of it.

About six or so years ago, I did the second smartest thing I've ever done. I asked her to marry me.

Five years ago today, she did just that. I can say, hands-down and without reservation, it's been the happiest five years of my entire life.

Happy Anniversary, babe.

Yours Forever.

I can safely say that both of you kids made out well in that deal. Happy anniversary!!! Tell the Mrs. I said hi. We'll have to toast to you two in person. Drinks next year?

Chez said...

Happy anniversary, man. Today happens to be K's parent's 39th anniversary. I guess December weddings are good luck.

She is a keeper--she knew you before you became a genuine internet SUPERSTAR.

Here's to love! Being married is awesome and crazy and frustrating and weird. But mostly awesome.

Way to go buddy. Congrats from another long-term couple (almost 14 years!).

I leave for a couple more months and you go changing the color of the rugs and wallpaper on me! Hell, I don't even know where the fuck I AM looking at this new background!

But that could just be the hallucinogens wearing off ... whatever, but look at all the purty birdies.

Congrats to you both. Fortunately (for me) or unfortunately (for you), I've had the pleasure of meeting both TK and Mrs. TK and I can honestly say you guys are one of the sweetest, loving couples I've met - and you both are lucky to have found the other (well, you more than the missus, but whatev).

I'm back for 2 days before leaving for Sri Lanka. Both of you have another great year together, and a safe happy and peaceful new year.

Salude, mi amigo. All my best.

And oh yeah, fuck you about Horace Pinker, you Dennis Miller obscure music referring motherfucker.

That is all.

TK said...

Thanks, everyone, and Happy New Year!

Ironically, an old roommate of mine is from the Philly area and married a Bostonian on the same day in '06.

Happy Anniversary to you!!
