The Big Ten

Dear Kelly,

Can you believe we’ve been married for ten whole years today?  How crazy is that?  Ten years ago, if someone had told me that a decade in the future, I’d be sitting here blogging about being married for ten years, I would have asked them what the hell “blogging” is.  Then I would have shot them in the face.  Yes, it’s a little harsh but the bible says that soothsayers are an abomination.  So getting shot in the face just comes with the territory.  And I’m pretty sure that when Yahweh himself declares that you and all of your fortunetelling colleagues are an abomination, getting shot in the face is probably the least of your worries anyway.

So where was I?  Oh yeah.  Ten years.  That’s a long time.  That’s a couple years longer than any job I’ve ever had and five times longer than any job you’ve ever had.  I’m not judging.  I’m just saying.

I think the song that sums up what I want to say the best is 311’s Down:

We’ve changed a lot and then some some
Know that we have always been down down
And if i ever didn’t thank you you
Then just let me do it now

Anyway, considering how we met, it’s pretty amazing that we even made it ten days.  But here we are nonetheless.  Not only are we still together, but we’re actually still going strong.  Sure, some people thought we were out of our minds, but I believe it was 311 that also said:

Fuck the naysayers cause they don’t mean a thing
‘Cause this is what style we bring.

So happy tenth anniversary!  Seriously, I’d be lost without you.  And you’re the best thing that’s ever happened to me.  Except maybe for that time when I was fifteen and I found a ten dollar bill on the side of road.  That was pretty awesome too.


Your Husband

P.S.  If anyone tells you that we won’t make it another ten years, shoot them in the face.  And if they tell you that we’ll be alright, shoot them in the face.  Hallelujah!

  1. Wow. I hope that MY husband is enthusiastic enough about being married to me for 10 years, that he’ll go around shooting people in the face. Cause that’s love, baby.

  2. This was sweet.

    Well, except for the shooting people in the face part.


  3. Congratulations! 10 years is a long time. If someone had told me 12 years ago that I’d be married for 12 years and have two kids by the time I was 32, I may not have shot them in the face but I would have definitely laughed and told them to take a hike. Here’s to… yeah, all that.

  4. Congrats on being married ten years. That is an accomplishment these days.
