Well All These Times, They Come and Go and the Long Don't Seem So Long, Over Ten Years Have Gone By

"Aaron."

"Yeah?"

"Do you realize that we've been together for ten years now?"

"No, we haven't."

"Yes, we have. We met face-to-face the first weekend in November ten years ago."

"No, we didn't."

"Yes, we did. It was 1996. I was 19. You were 24. Ten years ago."

::eyes pop out:: "It's 2006?"

"Um, last time I checked, yeah."

"Holy crap, that's a long time."

"Love you too, honey."

Awwww. That's sweet. I have moments like that, too. Oh, crap! What year it is?

So, you're 29? Youngster! :) I hope it has been a happy ten years! We aren't at the ten-year together mark yet -- that's next year.

Ahhh. It IS sweet. Congrats.

Leanne said...

Only 29 and yet the wisdom of a woman 10 times that age, the ass of a girl ten years younger, and a husband that's pretty much like the rest of them when it comes to marking time... You go girl!

It is a long time, isn't it? It boggles my mind that I first dated my husband in '94. (Of course, I shunned him during '95 and '96, but he wormed his way back into my good graces eventually. Men!)

Reminds me of Pete on Tuesday this week saying, " Today is Frida..no wait...Wednesd...oh fuck, who cares anyway."

But I think he does know what year it is.

My husband always says something like, what 6 years, feels like 60.

Joanne said...

Ten years is a long time, huh? It was our 11 year anniversary that seemed especially huge to me, and now we're coming up on 15. And since we started dating when I was 16, we've been together for more than half my life...now that's weird!

LLA said...

Crappy Anniversary! (I can say that, you know me well enough to know that it's heartfelt...)

I didn't realize you were 29! Toddler!

(LLA slinking off, suddenly feeling old....)

kisses!

Hee hee. Funny conversation. And yes, you are a young thing...enjoy it, honey. Someday you'll be an old thing like myself.

Amy said...

I met David in 1986 -- I just realized a few weeks ago that the anniversary of our first date is approaching. 20 years. 20!!!!!!!!!! I totally understand how you feel.

MéLisa said...

Congrats! Well think of it this way atleast he wasn't talking about stripers. ;)

Suse said...

Oh my god, you're 29? I feel so very old now.
