I let AMP pick our wedding date.
It seemed like a good idea at the time… He can be a little on the forgetful side, so I thought that maybe if he picked the date, he would be less likely to forget it. So, he spent some time thinking about it, and calculating a date that would not interfere with Super Bowl or other ‘important’ dates. And, he presented me with March 1st as our wedding date.
Except, for the fact that we got married on the leap year.
And that my lovely husband is a geek… (in the nicest way of course!)
So, for the past 3 years we’ve argued every year.
Me on March 1st : “Happy anniversary babe!”
Him on March 1st : “It’s not our anniversary today. Our anniversary is tomorrow.”
Me: “No, it’s today. It’s March 1st.”
Him: “No, our anniversary is two days after February 28th. That’s tomorrow.”
Which leads me to argue and stomp my feet at his stubbornness, and this year to pull out our marriage certificate to show him that we are indeed married on March 1st. His response?
Him on March 2nd : “Happy anniversary babe!”
I’m looking forward to next year, where we’ll actually be celebrating on the same day…
