ninanevermore: (Bite Me)
I took my 6-year-old son to see the animated film Rio last weekend. There was one line in the movie that made me laugh to the point that I almost fell out of my seat, but it didn’t strike the rest of the audience as all that funny. When I realized I was the only one laughing, I tried to keep quiet, but my shoulders still shook with silent laughter as I sank down in my seat with my hand clasped tightly over my mouth so that no sound would escape.

July 1st was the 20th anniversary of my first date with Jeff. Generally, I don't make a big deal of dating anniversaries, but since we were still "just dating" on the 10th anniversary of our first date (my wedding anniversary in September will be #9), I decided we should mark the occasion since it will be awhile before I get any other kind of 20th anniversary.

Only July 2nd I took the day off and we split a pizza for lunch. This might not sound like much of a celebration, but keep in mind we were both kind of broke when we met so the occasion we were celebrating involved going to a dollar movie together and drinking coffee at Denny's afterward for several hours. We went Dutch, each paying our own way. Getting dressed up to commemorate something like that seemed far fetched, so 20 years later we went Dutch on the celebratory pizza, as well. It would have been nice to catch a movie, but we needed to be home that afternoon to wait for the air-conditioner repairman (a week later, our parts are still on order and we haven't seen him again).

These last few days I've been replaying the day I got laid off in my mind. As far as layoffs go, it wasn't that unpleasant. Getting fired is unpleasant. Getting laid off is only sad.
