Anniversary Date, sort of. . .

My wife and I (it will be 14 years sometime next week of wedded bliss) have celebrated our anniversary in many different ways. We have taken in Broadway musicals, looked for household fixtures (sorry about that one, Ann), worked on the house(Yep, sorry about that one as well), and just gone out for dinner and a movie. Yesterday's will go down in history as perhaps the weirdest Anniversary date of them all. We went to a bodies exhibit.

Yep, you heard me right. A bodies exhibit. Dead bodies  and their parts laid open for the world to see. It was fascinating. Vivid sections of the human anatomy peeled back for a closer view. And apparently there are a lot of people who will pay good money to see this as well as the place was fairly busy with people, old and young, male and female looking at the nerve ending and dissected lung tissue, the male and female sex organs in all their glory (and without skin). If you want to know what I actually saw they have a pretty good web page. Body Exhibit. You know you want to.

What do you expect when a dark fiction writer and a doctorate of Pharmacy get together.

Happy Anniversary and many more! Glad you had a great time. Me, I'd give it a pass. ; )

I love those weird married moments. You look around, realize what you're doing, look at each other, and go, "Yep."

Happy Anniversary!

Rebecca, It really was interesting. Honest. :)

Katey, exactly.

I will be honest, my anniversary isn't until the 27th, but this was the only day we could get away.

There had better be a short story to evolve from this!

Barry, I am working on it, but so far nothing. *sigh*

Ah, young love.

Danielle Ferries said...

Happy Anniversary. And your wife can't say you're not original :)

Jamie Eyberg said...

Cate, it probably wasn't for everyone.

K.C.,:)

Nat, I don't think a 14th anniversary counts as young anymore. Our flower girl is graduating college this year.

Danielle, I can say the same about her. ;)
