Shama and I have been married for 2 years. It’s been the best 2 years. The second year anniversary is the “cotton” anniversary. A year ago for our first (“paper”) anniversary, I made Shama a pop-up book.
I was pretty proud of it. I wasn’t expecting us to make crazy presents this year since Shama’s been so busy writing lesson plans for school, but when we were out to dinner she told me she made something “entirely of cotton.” I guessed and guessed (pillows? a hat? socks? stapler cozy?) but I never got it. Finally, as we were eating dessert, I realized what it was. “Did you make ‘us’?”
