It’s our wedding anniversary this weekend.
I had to delve into the recesses of my memory, but I’m fairly sure we got married in ‘75.
Thirty five fucking years!!!
It’s hard to believe.
During all that time, I am proud to say that I have remained
faithful loyal married, which must be some kind of record. If I were American, I would be onto my fifth or sixth by now, and sunning myself on a beach in Florida with a nice young twenty-something. But I’m Irish, so I’m stuck here in the mountains with Herself.
Apparently it’s our ‘jade anniversary’ which means I am supposed to buy her something to do with jade. She can fuck off. I know of a slapper called Jade who works in a nightclub in Skobieville, so I might make myself a present of her for the night, but that’s as far as it goes [apart from the follow up trip to the STD clinic?].
Thirty. Five. Fucking. Years.
I can’t get over it.
Half the population of this Godforsaken country wasn’t even born, thirty five years ago.
I’m not going to mention it, of course. With a bit of luck she’ll forget. And if she doesn’t, she had better get me a damned good present.
It had better be a fucking medal.
Mark her up and sell her on, Grandad. No messing about … she knows the score. Here’s a link to SheBay http://pages.ebay.co.uk/ebayforcharity/sell.html
I think the trade-in value has dropped a bit on Irish wans but you can still get a couple of Philippinos and a spare camshaft if you haggle a bit.
I feel some considerable sympathy for your wife. Thirty five years of rolling her eyes on a daily basis must take it’s toll. I imagine they’re moving continually in circles these days.
Remember to wear your asbestos socks at the weekend in case she decides to wake you by tickling your feet with a blowtorch.
.-= not twitter´s last brainfart .. Jolie and Pitt split, oh sh*t =-.
Wedding anniversary- an event best forgot. You’re taking her to Bantry this year. That should do it for a present.
I think herself needs to be commended for not running off with a younger, more agreeable model!!!
What Maxi said.
She meant me, btw.
.-= rhodester´s last brainfart .. God Hates Gaga? Say it ain’t so! =-.
Dig out your head bucket because the only medal you will get will be metal upside your bean.
Hey! What’s this? I go away for a while and come back to find people sympathising with her?? For fuck’s sake – she has had a great thirty five years. I gave her a roof over her head, didn’t I? I feed her occasionally, don’t I? I even let her have the odd vodka [on her birthday], don’t I?
TT – Drop me a mail, and we’ll discuss prices.
Hardly. I figured you would pay me.
Of course I’ll pay you. I’m not that heartless.
Awh so sweet and lovely! Congratulations!!! I think you should buy her some lovely bling bling
This is pretty
You know you want too!
Happy Anniversary!!!! Well done!!! I got married in ’77 and divorced 16 years later!
I think you both deserve medals!!!
.-= Kate´s last brainfart .. Electric Shocks!!! =-.
Aw! Thanks, Kate. At least someone recognises my suffering and patience.
Hey, Jelly Monster! You ended up in my Spam folder. Mind you – suggesting I buy her a ring does constitute spam, so I think I’ll put you back there.
