The traditional gift for the second anniversary of a marriage seems to be cotton. This year may be unique though with Judge Walker setting closing arguments in the Proposition 8 trial for June 16, one day before the second anniversary of hundreds (thousands?) of same-sex couples in California, and two days before our own anniversary.
Even though paper is supposed to be for the first anniversary, I’d overlook the faux pas if Judge Walker’s planning on issuing a favorable order for the big day. Who would I be to say no? Would I return it doesn’t come printed on something cottony, say big fluffy beach towels? No, that would be rude. Not quite as rude as the people who tried to end our marriage, but rude none the less, and we couldn’t have that mar our celebrating.
If anyone else wants to help us celebrate, or drop a copy of the order by while wearing something cottony, we’ll be back at The Cliffs celebrating our anniversary. Look for us poolside or follow the sounds of a fluffy little dog complaining he’s not getting enough attention.
