i just realized that i may not be so fond of the past tense
tomorrow is my 14th wedding anniversary
tonight after dinner my oldest daughter and i were doing dishes and cleaning up the kitchen
when all of a sudden she says "i can see why you married dad!"
i reply "oh why is that, because he is such a nice guy?"
her reply "oh no, probably because you were pretty!"
like was, but aren't anymore?...i gave her a really hard time, we laughed pretty hard, and she assured me that wasn't what she meant
but still with the end of the thirties approaching......
