bless their hearts. their conversational hearts that is. my roommate and her boyfriend (now fiance') take it to the limit every time. and they don't even like the eagles. on every month anniversary, both parties participate in junior high exchanges of lovey dovey chocolatey sticky note flowered homemade card goodness. i believe they are on their 10th month of dating- due to marry in june. just precious. this brings me to pownder on the whole concept of anniversaries. (and yes i pownder...not ponder. it's different) one month the fiance' decorated roommate's car with sticky notes after church. another month she received a dozen roses and a new pony. well the pony never made it but i'm sure it tried. poems, scavenger hunts, and framed pictures of their relationship bliss adorn her bedroom dresser..all products of such anniversaries. please hold. thank you for holding. i would now like to share some specific quesitons with you...results of my powndering:
- if a couple celebrates every month...what is it called? a month-a-sary?
- if one of the brothers and i started dating, what would our first monthasary gift be? maybe i could get brother #1 a missionary pillow case.
- do certain parties in a relationship (perhaps you the reader) feel driven by guilt to participate in obligatory monthasary rituals?
- and finally, is a monthasary related to a monastery in any way?
