Lesson #152: The 34th Anniversary

My parents are celebrating their 34th wedding anniversary today, which is pretty awesome mostly for the fact that I can’t imagine liking anyone enough to put up with them on an 8 week trip across a country (as they did just after they were married and as the devastatingly gorgeous Dutch guy I met in Wadi Rum is undertaking with his girlfriend on the Trans-Siberian Railroad next month), nevermind staying with them for 34 years.

Anyway, there is no traditional gift for a 34th anniversary, you know, because 34 is a really arbitrary number, but in modernity, the gift associated with the 34th anniversary is opal.

Congrats Mom and Dad!
