Its that time of the year - our Anniversary !!!

This is what we told each other today, when we woke up.
18 Years!!! That’s half my age ( well, I missed an almost there ). Yet, Unbelievable.

When we started we never thought we will make it to this many years. Now that we survived the marriage without killing each other all these years ( yeah that was a possibility just with the remote of the telly), we are determined to make it as difficult as possible for each other – oh that does not deter us from living together for another 18 more years or more.

You know what, how ever hard I tried, I could not come up with a mushy mushy post today, but the fact is that 18 years still baffles both of us equally.

Okay Jokes apart, please observe a two minute silence today at 11.00 am.

And what did you think? That silence was for our 18th Wedding Anniversary?

No way. You got me wrong folks. Today is Martyrs day and the two minute silence was for our “Father of the nation”. To know more about Martyrs Day in India, go here..

I am a little disoriented with all the excitement of 18 year completion. Here is a man who grew a beard just because his wife loved men with beards, gritted his teeth and smiled when his wife cut her hair short, when he actually likes long hair, makes sure she is never alone in the kitchen, puts up with her channel surfing and watches all the crap that she watches patiently, allowed her to dream and made sure she is independent and a lot more.

I feel blessed today.  I am sure he feels the same too.  :-)

  3. Wonderful. Many many best wishes and what a tribute your last para was. If he reads your blog, I am sure he had tears in his eyes. And you are absolutely right - he feels the same way to.

    Thanks for highlighting Martyr's Day. Its a special special day, which we, alas, forget.

    1. Atleast we both never forget the Martyrs day as 30th Jan is our Anniversary - its a running joke in the family about who is the martyr amongst us. :-)

      I have to find the time to thrust this post down his throat one of these days, he's busy with his trips and not the kind to read my blog and definitely not the tearing up kinds. But, I can find alternatives to get tears in his eyes.. now dont give me that malicious look - i can squeeze orange peels on his eyes or get him to cut onions.. :-) :-)

    2. Oh ; you would be surprised. He may be the strong untearing type, but deep inside he would choke up on reading your post . He may never admit it, but that's exactly how it will be. So no onions needed :):)

    3. You do have a point - and thats how many men ( atleast I know my man for sure) get tempered over the years. ( BTW, I am laughing in glee, cos I have yet another way of tempering him :-) :-) )
