Today is the eleventh year anniversary of my first date with das Corbster.
Except when it's not, as the following Live Journal entry from last year demonstrates:
May 7, 2014: Today marks the ten-year anniversary that Corb and I have been together. Who would have thought it would have lasted this long?
Oops! I guess we were in a rush to celebrate our ten year anniversary and didn't check the facts. So, when I read that this morning, I congratulated Corb on our eleven year and seven day anniversary.
A look of confusion crossed his face. "What? Are you sure?"
"It says it on Live Journal!" I replied, pointing to this entry.
He scowled. "We are so forgetful. Does that mean we don't love each other enough?"
An hour later, I received a Facebook message from him.
I WAS RIGHT! IT IS TODAY!
Then he provided proof...from my own Live Journal.
May 7th, 2004:
"For some reason I'm very nervous about this date next Friday."
May 14th, 2004:
"I went out at lunch today and picked up a new pair of black jeans and a black shirt for tonight."
Despite the fact that we practiced retroactive history last year, I guess we got it right this time around. And despite this difference in seven days, one thing has stayed true whatever length of time it is: Corb's my life partner and best friend, and the only person I want to live my life with. So, what's a week between friends, when you get right down to it? We love each other MORE than enough.
NOTE TO SELF: Read THIS entry next year!!!
