Why My Wife Hates Our Anniversary
Today, my wife Cathy is celebrating 27 years of long-suffering patience and tolerance.
27 years of marriage is "Purple Heart", right? I'll have to check the Hallmark index on that one.
Cathy's not a big fan of our anniversary anymore. Here's why: our anniversary is the first weekend of May...like right now. In some cases it's the first Saturday in May. Since 2002, the first Saturday in May is Free Comic Book Day, to coincide with a major super-hero blockbuster movie. This year, It's Guardians of the Galaxy, Volume 2.
Over the last fifteen years, I've wanted to celebrate our anniversary by stopping by the comic book store in the Hillcrest Shopping Center; then going out for a quick bite before seeing the latest geektacular blockbuster.
That's not how Cathy wants to spend our anniversary. She wants to dress up nice. That means I have to wear a shirt with a COLLAR and maybe - *shudder* - a TIE! We'll go out to a nice restaurant - which IS pretty cool - and we'll have an ADULT conversation. We'll talk about the feelz and goals and plans.
And I'm just like, "I am Groot."
Do you and your guy share interests and hobbies or not?
