He Said, She Said: Anniversary Plans

{You know all those funny and/or stupid little moments that happen in every marriage but nobody ever talks about? Well welcome to He Said, She Said: True Stories where I give you an unprecedented glimpse inside the marital dysfunction. You are welcome.}

Setting the Scene: Matt and I recently celebrated our 18th wedding anniversary. Honestly, neither of us made much of an effort. I got him a card. He got me some beautiful yellow tulips and a card that was a “Thinking Of You” card because he had to grab one last minute. The following conversation took place via text while he was at work that day.


He Said: Happy Anniversary.

She Said: Happy Anniversary.

He Said: Want to go out tonight?

She Said: And do what?

He Said: I don’t know. Movie? Dinner?

She Said: With the kids?

He Said: We could get a babysitter.

She Said: That’ll be a $150 night out.

He Said: Other options?

She Said: Take out and redbox. $50. Boom.

He Said: Done.

She Said: It’s a date.

He Said: It’s an old person date. Are we old people now?

She Said: We are. It’s so sad.

He Said: Oh well. We had a good run.

She Said: Word.

The End.


*We ate Chinese food and watched Noah. Clearly we are old people.

    You’re not old. Just broke. Which is caused by kids! Happy Anniversary and may you have many more-til you don’t even need a babysitter! It could happen!

    We just had our 11th — and we actually did make it out for a dinner and movie (Guardians of the Galaxy)! Much thanks to Air Miles converted to movie tickets and a grandma would babysits for free.

    Happy Anniversary! I have yet to see Noah – definitely on my must watch list.
