Growing Old Together

Princess?
Today is my 19th wedding anniversary. (Yes, it's the day after my birthday. Makes it easy to remember.)

I used to kiss frogs. I didn't do it in hopes that I'd find a princess, I just did it because I liked frogs. Eventually, I did find my princess, and I haven't kissed any frogs since. I don't know whether there's a lesson in there, but if there is, maybe it's: if you're going to kiss somebody, do it because of who they are, not who you hope they'll be.

Also, be nice to frogs.

It helps when you can actually be friends with the person in question. Yours like to hang in the garden with you. Mine can back up a trailer like no one's business while I guide the boat. Bluntly, mere "lovers" cannot do those things, not over long periods of time.

(irony: the word verification for this comment is "yesure" and I kid you not)
