[family] Happy Anniversary, baby

Today is my (step)mom and dad’s 41st wedding anniversary. Yes, they really did get married six days after my birthday, the year I turned seven. I have no idea what they were thinking, getting married so close to JayCon.

Later that year, in second grade at Morrison Academy, a Baptist missionary school in downisland Taiwan, I was sent home with a note telling my parents to punish me for lying as I’d written a little essay about being at their wedding. Ah, the good old days.

We were all young and beautiful once, weren’t we?

Happy anniversary, Mom and Dad.
