Mistakes Make Great Jokes

We had a little meltdown this morning, followed by a good laugh. Today would have been Mom and Dad’s 36th anniversary, and this morning when she saw Dad’s white Cadillac out in front where I parked it when we arrived last night, she remembered a family joke.

Mom and Dad got married in Reno on what they thought was New Year’s Eve. (This morning I asked, “What, were you drunk?” Mom laughed. “No, just ditzy.”) So every year Mom would tell Dad happy anniversary on the 30th, and he would say, “Oh, I thought it was tomorrow.”

Morgan heard our teary giggling this morning over the growl of the bathroom fan, and asked what was going on. When we reminded her of the anniversary, she said, right on cue, “Oh, I thought it was tomorrow.”

Man I wish our family had some family only joke. They're the sort of thing that only those in the know understand and care about but it makes you feel special when you're in the know.

It might be very belated but I hope this year goes great and you still keep blogging, and taking those awesome photos.

Have a good year my dear.
