We're the big 5. Both of us. At the same time.

Nick and I celebrated our fifth anniversary yesterday.  Not only do we have the same anniversary (no shock there), we seemed to have everything else in common that evening.

We had a nice dinner at The Ram on Ruston Way (let me just take a moment to gripe that because of this street, no locals ever spell my last name correctly).  Nick and I chose, independently, the same item from the menu for dinner.  This was followed by a last minute scramble for a second choice, as we like to sample each other's meals anyway.

Dinner was followed by some shopping and ice cream from Baskin Robbins, where we were again beset with the problem of having chosen the same ice cream - two scoops in a cup: york and fudge brownie.

Next was the movie rental selection.  Enchanted.  This was Nick's choice and would have been mine except I would not have subjected him to it.

It seems that in only five years we have managed to become old married foagies.

How in the world do you spell foagies anyway?

Now that you mention it, it is really hard to tell you two apart. You are lucky that you are both attractive people.
