Dirty Dirty Fuzzy Monster. Also, Love.

This week is getting away from me. We have been busy with football, and memorial services, and game nights, and also seeing the best musical theater that I have ever seen. Ever.

If you have not seen Avenue Q, you absolutely must. Go get tickets now, they are probably coming to a theater near you. It was funny, the songs were catchy, “Why Can’t I Go Back to College?” and “The Internet Is for Porn” probably being my two favorites, and the puppeteering was amazing. As the Funasaurus said, it’s dirty Muppets. How is that NOT going to be my favoritest thing ever?

(And trust me, folks, I’ve seen my fair share of musical theater in my lifetime.)

And as of today, The Funasaurus and I have officially been married one full year. I am not sure where that year went, as I am pretty sure I spent many lifetimes planning that darn wedding and it was over so quickly I might have missed it if I had yawned. Which I did not. (Yawn, I mean.) I was too hopped up on adrenaline, cabernet, and spanikopita. And of course, good good Funasaurus love. If the first year really is the hardest, I think we are set. Seeing as how we spent most of it cuddling and making googly eyes at each other. When we weren’t busy trying to keep up with our chaotic social life.

It was a little telling at The Funasaurus’ sister’s wedding two weeks ago when we were taking pictures, and we had just taken several of the bridal party. (I was the matron-of-honor. Could we not find a name for that position that makes it sound a little less like I should be wearing a long frock with a high-neck lace collar?) Then the photographer said, “O.K., bridal party sit down, bride’s family, please come up.” Then The Funasaurus had to yank me back up as I started to go sit down.

“Remember that deal we made about a year ago?” he muttered. Guess what has become the most-quoted line from that evening.

Oopsie. It all still feels so new. But I get kind of giddy when I remember all over again that we did it. We’re married. He’s now stuck getting my freezing toes shoved in between his legs at all random hours of the night for the rest of his life. Happily, he enjoys musical theater, too. So I anticipate many more dirty singing puppet shows in our future. What could be more romantic than that?

Happy Anniversary!
Glad you liked the show as much as I knew you would! My fave song is "It sucks to be me". And who knew puppet sex could be so graphic?! haha

Lily said...

I had no idea a show like that existed...
But, more to the point...CONGRATULATIONS! One year! I think it's silly, all this about the first married year being the hardest, it must have been true back when the first married year meant the first time living together and sleeping in the same bed.
A long an happy married life to you both!

PS - so glad that you liked Avenue Q - we have the soundtrack, so let me know if you want Eric to burn it for you...

I am so intrigued by this musical....

Happy Anniversary....that first year thing is a myth, the hard years come at 5-7 years, especially if you've added kiddos somewhere along the lines. Truly, though, if you get to year 10 it's all the ease of downhill with all the progress of uphill from there!

Yeah, watch those sevenses, as far as married years go... but I imagine if you keep on as you have, you'll have a long marriage despite cold toes. Happy Anniversary!

Melissa said...

Happy Anniversary to the nicest most wonderful couple I know! (Well, besides me and my Hubby of course! LOL!!) Seriously, we love you two and miss you a ton!

I saw Avenue Q a year ago in NYC and thought it was hilarious!

Diane said...

and congrats on the anniversary!

Congrats on your one year together! You are indeed lucky to have a man who enjoys musical theater. My guy won't go near it! I did manage to bribe him into watching Moulin Rouge, and he reluctantly admitted that he liked it. That's a start!
