11 years

Yesterday M & I celebrated our 11th year of marriage - not too shabby, right? We celebrated by taking a bunch of collage students to 6 Flags - not exactly our idea of a romantic day, but, alas, a seemingly unavoidable timing issue due to my job, the start of new school year and the 6 Flags schedule. Oh well, it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be and we'll go away for a weekend later to celebrate for realsies.

I haven't ridden any roller coasters for a long time and wasn't sure if it was still my bag, and was mildly distressed to find them outrageously terrifying. Why do we (by which I mean the Human Race) go to places like that? It's sort of ridiculous when you think about it. Well, whatareyougonnado? I just rode the rides and screamed my head off (M seemed to enjoy categorizing the types of screams - one he described as a "kind of keening"; another, "like a small animal being repeatedly squeezed.")

Here we are, 11 years ago:

Love it! I remember your fabulous wedding. You are a wonderful couple and so loving towards each other. A good example of what married life should be. Cheers!

On theme parks and rides: I am sending Charlie with Sam & Lyna, 'cause I can't handle the rides! I got sick on a carousel at the zoo last week. I'm so old.

I almost got sick on a carousel too! Now when I ride one with Milo, I have to focus on just his face, so I don't loose it. Milo will also be going with San and Lyna!

Your wedding was great - one of the best!

You gals can do what you like, but let me remind you that S&L let their baby ride on a LAWN MOWER. (Listen, M will take c & m to the amusement park.)

I've always liked Mike.

Plus I love Space Mountain for some inexplicable reason. But it could well be that you can't see the ridiculous risks you're about to take so you just get the rush and none of the "oh sh%t!!"

keening . . . . yeah, that's a good word for it.
