Sweet Sixteenth Anniversary

Sweet sixteen. It was sixteen years ago last Friday, I took the big plunge. Jumped the broom. Walked down the aisle.

Now, to all of you guys who are wondering just how to get your gal to make the big commitment and get married? I don't know how it's done. I can tell you that it helps when you when the in-laws fly all the way across the country. If they spend all that money on tickets and hotels, they will want to see a wedding.

It also helps when your mother-in-law raises five children, she'll instinctively know which direction any of her children will try to flee. So that she doesn't have to necessarily be more fleet of foot than your betrothed, she just has to be able to cover the distance between the aisles.

The Missus: The Reverend said "for better or for worse," it never got any better!

Me: Honey, stop it, we have people reading this.

The Missus: It...never...got...any...better!

Ahem. At any rate, The Missus decided that we should take a road trip, though it was to be a surprise for me in every sense of the word. Come Tuesday, you'll find out just how much. Right now, I have to sedate the wife.
