Anniversaries

For about fifteen seconds on Saturday I'd convinced my wife there was a carbon fibre wedding anniversary - I might have made it to twenty if I'd kept a straight face. There are some truly useless anniversaries available, such as iron, (6th - steel is 11th) bronze, (8th) tin (10th) and lace (13th. OK, I do often need new laces) There are also some illegal ones - ivory (14th) and coral (35th). No Carbon fibre, no aluminium, no rubber - am I alone in thinking that these things are due for an overhaul?

    Apparently there is a modern list as well (doubtless a yankee mass consumerism thing), 4th anniversary on it is "appliances".

    Probably be simpler to get rid of marriage rather than re-write the list.

    That'll be a new car then :) Which anniversary is "firearms"?

    That looks like what you'd get if you referred the decision to Argos. I'm unilaterally claiming 6th, 8th and 10th as aluminium, carbon fibre and titanium respectively, and you can all tell your other half you read it on the internet

    Oooooh, naughty boy - you can't say 'Yankee'. You'll be mugged by the Mary Whitehouse appreciation society.
