A decade under the influence

1 Comment

Yeah, so, it’s been 10 years!

My mighty, mighty good man David and I are celebrating our 10-year wedding anniversary today. So much has happened in those 10 years. We created another human. We really leaned into that whole “in sickness and in health” thing, that’s for sure.

But the one thing hasn’t changed: We still love each other. We’re a team. We’ve always got each other’s back. We rarely argue because we know that our intentions are always good.

We always support each other. He doesn’t give me crap when I buy yet another dress for our already jam-packed closet. And I totally get it when another board game arrives on our doorstep.

“Me: I need to buy this dress with a wiener dog print.”
David: “Yeah, you do!”

David: “I’m going to buy this board game about trolleys that run over people.”
Me: “Duh.”

During these super weird and scary times, I take great comfort in knowing that I have this amazing partner in my life. Not a day goes by that I don’t thank him for no reason.

“Thank you.”
“For what?”

And then the answer is usually:

a) “For loving me.”
b) “For being awesome.”
c) “For being the best … around.
d) All of the above

We celebrate each other’s successes. We console each other when things are crappy. We drink craft beer and watch old movies. We talk about how much we miss baseball and our weekend adventures to breweries. We play Animal Crossing together and go on “dates” to the museum.

But mostly, we laugh a lot. We have a happy life.

Thank you, David, for marrying me.

I'm a writer/podcaster/mother/goober in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, watch old movies, go to baseball games, kick breast cancer's ass, explore with my mighty, mighty good man David and my awesome autistic son, Calvin, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.
