Doing Time The Not-So Hard Way...

I was awoken this morning with cards and presents, as is fitting for a lady who has fulfilled her wifely duty TEN WHOLE YEARS. (Oh, I can just hear the conversations when I get home tonight... along lines of "define fulfill" and "define wifely duty")

When I opened this card, I got a tear in my eye...





Yes, this menacing rabbit might well be the perfect statement to celebrate our love (besides the Big Fuck Off Television that is). You think it's all going to be hearts and bunnies as you stand there in white smiling at the cameras, but you slowly discover that beneath the facade there resides a dark underbelly that can only really be suggested through this disturbing visual metaphor.

Actually, want to know something really disturbing? My son picked out this card with Daddy, and would not leave until this was the one they secured for "Mummy..."

This actually makes me feel doubly proud. In much the same way as when I hear from his teachers that he has been habitually informing others that "Yoko Ono broke up the Beatles.." (He's not yet four... but Daddy's word is Lore)

Ten years after The Old Man and I stood up and said "I do" in a quaint country church in Kent, I am woken by my three-year old crawling across me--carefully maneouvering around my belly. My husband brings me coffee in bed, kisses me, and hands me twisted greetings cards. And I know we're doing all right. We're quite smashing, in fact. Yep. I'm one lucky hussy.

What a wonderful start to year 11. It sounds like your son is intuitive beyond well beyond his years.

DD said...

OK...if my son even thought that the Easter Bunny looked like that, I don't think he would be nearly as excited about the holiday.

However, how can you not think of hearts and bunnies, as was intended, when your son gives it to you?

A tear has come to my eye, too.
Happy anniversary.

Her Bad Mother said...

Happy, happy, happy anniversary to you. (We hit ten this year, too. Wacka wacka.)

And I love the bad bunnies. The name of the artist (German? Dutch?) is escaping me at the moment, but I have a zillion of these cards. Just thought I'd share.

1. that card is FUCKING AWESOME.
2. congrats and love to you and F-dog. long may you reign!

Mother said...

Congrats. That's certainly reason to celebrate... It's amazing to see time as it passes in the lives of our children. 2 years was like nothing - until I see a little kid running around. Shit.

Mega Mom said...

You sure are. Many happy anniversaries. Damn Yoko Ono.

That card made me snort. I think we would really like you and your husband (and children too, of course). Same sick sense of humor, you know.

And that church. I remember visiting England and thinking, as we drove through the countryside, that "I really could live here." So beautiful.

Happy anniversary, Joy!

Happy Anniversary to you. Here's to 10 more!

Happy Anniversary, Joy. What's the traditional gift for 10 years? Paxil?

virtualredhead said...

Boyo been watching too much Wallace & Grommit lately, perhaps? Funny.

Fine work these 10 years, my friend.

Mom101 said...

Not many people can make me go from out loud snorting (yoko ono - hilarious) to weepy (your last parragraph). Stop it this instant, Missie.

Okay, stop it tomorrow. In honor of your anniversary and all. Happy happy.

ozma said...

Awesome card. There are no words to really describe how much I love that card. How could your marriage be cooler if that is your anniversary card? Run, peasants! Run for your lives!

And happy anniversary! Ten years! That's no small potatoes. Ain't love grand. But shucks, no wedding picture. I love wedding pictures.

It was my fourth anniversary last week, although we've been together for 13 years. 14 years? I can't remember now. We almost forgot and I was out of town. You make me realize maybe we should do the whole anniversary thing. We are non-celebrators of all major occasions. Like Jehovah's Witnesses only lazy.

Hey, thanks for your comment on my blog today. Let me know if you find out anything about the survey. I briefly tried to find it on the ADA website, as I was also curious about the methodology, but couldn't find it. I only saw the results referenced in the news.

doow said...

Happy anniversary! It sounds like you're doing just dandy :-)

Jenny said...

I love it! For our 5th anniversary my hubby gave me a "Happy 95th Birthday" card.

It's so amazing to find someone who actually gets and appreciates how twisted you are, huh?

mamatulip said...

Happy Anniversary. I love the card, almost as much as I love that your son is telling his chums that Yoko broke up the Beatles.

MrsFortune said...

One lucky hussy ... that sounds like a good band name/blog tagline, no?

What a great card, who is the artist? Happy anniversary, GingaJoy family.

sunshine scribe said...

Happy anniversary Joy!!!! Love the card and love the fact that your son tells his friends about Yoko Ono busting up the beatles. He's my kinda kid.

Wishing you 10 more amazing years!

Nancy said...

Happy Anniversary! I love the card your son picked. :-)

We're celebrating our 10 year anniversary this October. Seems like the time has flown...

Stefanie said...

We call our television a "fuck off" television too! Once we hosted part of a neighborhood party and we overheard some neighbors making fun of us for having such a big tv. But fuck 'em! We love us some teeveee! Happy anniversary!

Oh, The Joys said...

Love the bunny!! LOVE it!

Kevin Charnas said...

Congratulations and Happy Anniversary!!

That's so damn funny that your your little one tells his teachers that "Yoko Ono broke up the Beatles..." !! LOL

lildb said...

oh, congratulations supreme, you luscious, red-tressed lady (and your husband, whatever *he's* like. *wink*)

bubandpie said...

Congratulations, you two! This is such a great post - I love that your three-year-old is careful of your tummy (Bub always thought mine was a really great mountain to climb over, back and forth, over and over again).

But what I really want to know is, what was the caption written on the inside of a card like that???
