What were YOU doing 19 years ago today - August 11th, 1990??
I was graduating from college. Actually, I had already officially graduated, but the whole pompous cap and gown and tassle ceremony was 8/11/90, and I was a happy NO SHOW.
Nope, didn't go. Didn't feel the need. Just give me that diploma in the mail and make sure my transcripts say that I sucked it up 'til the bitter end.
Besides, I had more important things to attend to. I was getting hitched. It's close, but I think getting the husband was easier than getting the college degree.
Today, I'm not actually sure where my college diploma is. Probably in a musty box somewhere. Maybe the same musty box with the marriage certificate.
But yeah, nineteen whole years. I checked online for the traditional significance of this event and found:
"This Wedding Anniversary does not have any traditional materials or symbols
associated with it"
Well now, isn't that special...
But they're not fooling me. It's nineteen years and I consider that a feat! Nineteen good good years! Nineteen years of wedded *COUGH* bliss!
And we're celebratin'!
