Happy Anniversary!

Once upon a time, a long, long time ago, a boy asked a girl to be in his college English study group.  The girl accepted and gave him her phone number.  Somewhere over the course of the next few years they started dating, fell in love, got engaged, then married.

That was 14 years ago.

To celebrate this momentous occasion the boy had an amazing night . . .
sleeping on the couch in the basement to calm the freaked out dog as 5 million thunderstorms went past the house.  

The girl woke dark and early to a romantic . . .
scream for help down the hall and a bloody nose in bed, 

which resulted in a party . . .
since the baby awoke to the hoopla and frolickery, ready to celebrate. 

The grand finale to this amazing morning was the boy gracefully and gently caressing . . .
a pair of pliers as he broke a plastic ring off a swollen finger, as it started to bite into the skin.

What will the rest of the day hold?  

What will the next 14 years hold?

It is all conjecture but I think it's probably true that it will be just as eventful and exciting as this morning was.  Maybe even more so.
