Silver

Twenty-five years is a long time to spend with the same person.

– A lotta sleepless nights listening to the snoring

– A lotta weekends spent poolside

– A lotta Shakespeare and Jane Austen adaptations

– A lotta Batman movies

– A lotta holidays spent with in-laws

– A lotta vacation time spent with lawyers

– A lotta highs, a lotta lows, a lotta in-betweens

– A lotta hours watching PBS

– A lotta hours listening to John Hiatt

– A lotta time wasted worrying about shit that doesn’t matter

– A lotta time walking in circles at the Rec-Plex

– A lotta wine

– A lotta time spent putting up with his friends

– A lotta comic books on the end table

– A lotta Southern Livings on the end table

– A lotta Joelfests

– A lotta time wondering when she’s coming home

– A lotta time wondering why he got old, fat and bald and I didn’t change a bit

Twenty-five years is a long time to spend with the same person.

But if it’s the right person, it’s not near long enough.
