Dildo

Your wedding anniversary isn’t nearly as much fun when your spouse is dead. Today has been rough.

I had been contemplating how it would go for some time now. How could I make it as un-shitty as possible? Marrying Joey was the best decision I made in my life and I still want to celebrate that, but I am devastated that he isn’t here to do it with me. So here’s what I did:

  • I cried a lot (no real surprise there).
  • I went to the gym. Not because I wanted to, but because it always makes me feel slightly less bad after I am done and I know that he would want me to be in the best mental shape possible for the day.
  • I bought myself a pink rose, like the ones that were in my bouquet at our wedding.
  • I managed to get a massage as a walk in when I passed through Clarenville. He would have bugged me to go and do that. Anyone else think it’s weird that the therapist’s name was April?
  • I drove to Dildo, Newfoundland, which is where I’m spending the night. My reasons for this are twofold: the first is obvious – my spouse is dead and I was in the neighborhood. The second is because Joey would have found this hilarious, as do I. We got through many a crappy time together by laughing. Visiting Dildo on our anniversary was the best I could come up with to make both myself and others laugh. It really is quite ridiculous. So far, the people here are friendly as well. No surprises there either.
  • I am going to watch the movie we went to see on our first date in 1997. Blast from the past. I think that this is a tradition I will keep from now on.

And just to show you that I am not full of it:

Happy anniversary to me…

    We were all thinking of you two yesterday, love to you both, but seriously Kirstin I am almost pissing my pants on where you spent your anniversary. That is too funny!! Thanks for sharing and you are correct Joey would have found it hilarious, I am surprised he didn’t take you there for your honeymoon. Did they have any specialty shops????????????
