Happy 5th Anniversary, Mr. Robeau.

12.12.06

People find it strange that the Robeau and I celebrate our anniversary on December 12th as it is also the anniversary of my Dad's death (20 years ago today). It's a coincidence, nothing more, nothing less and the truth is I think it is a happy one even though I can't really articulate why. It's now also the unofficial birthday for Bernie the wonder Cat, but that's another story.

A little while ago, one of my sweeter friends, who was having man trouble asked me what drew me to the Robeau in the first place and I told her it was my "post 9/11 mindset". I was laughing. She was confused. The truth is, I'm not even sure how to answer that question, except with the obvious things like "we have so much in common" and "he's nice" and "he makes me laugh" and really, who wants to hear that?

I'm glad we ended up together, whatever the reason. The last five years have been just swell - filled with laughter, music and interesting discussions. Now, I'm not one for sentimental declarations, especially on the intornet, so I'm left asking only, "where the hell did the time go?". Happy Anniversary Mr. Robeau. Tonight we eat steak, drink wine and toast the fact that you can still stand to live with me after all this time. And, um, thanks for that.

  2. I've never lived with anyone for five years. Well, except for my parents. And they threw me out too.

  6. "you can still stand to live with me after all this time"

    That is a true testament to love and affection. There's nothing sentimental about the trials and tribulations of sharing your space with another human.

    Congrats!
