Big Celebration

Yesterday was a special day.  I wasn't allowed to tell you about it because my Mom didn't want to make a big deal of it.  She didn't want anyone to get a crazy idea and do something special.  Like crazy people who like to party.  Who'd want to do anything special anyway?  No fun here for big occasions.  (Sheesh.)

Yesterday, 40 years ago, these two love birds tied the knot.  They probably didn't even do anything special.  Probably went to church.  Ate at El Fenix.  Maybe watched the end of the golf tournament.

But they should.  They should celebrate!  They deserve a BIG PARTY, if that was their type of thing.  I suggested they take a big trip to somewhere big like the Grand Canyon or Alaska.  Because it is that BIG of a deal.

But they didn't.  They're just living their life like any other day.  Which isn't bad, I suppose.

Because it's 40 years.  No biggie.  They have many, many more to go.  :-)
