Marriage Is Proudly Sporting Mickey Ears

One of my favorite sightings on our last family vacation to Disney World was an elderly couple on scooters. At first, I just heard them. Or should I say, I heard her. Beep! Beep! “Over here!” “To the left!” “Hurry up!”

Then I saw them, barely. The Mr. and Mrs. were scooting pretty fast. The Mrs. leading the way with the Mr. about ten feet behind, following orders with each turn. How did I know they were married you ask? By the Mickey and Minnie bride and groom ears they were proudly sporting.Mickey and Minnie bride and groomI’d already missed my opportunity to ask the bride, so I shouted at the groom, “How long have you been married?”

“55 years!” boomed the groom, proudly as he quickly got back in stride following command.

As I approach my wedding anniversary (which i actually thought was today…it’s not…), I remembered this 55 year bride and groom. They have marriage all figured out!

1) She said, he followed.

2) Matching outfits and festive hats are always cute.

3) Why walk, when you can ride?

And 4) Marriage is something to be proud of.

I’m not quite ready for my scooter yet, but I pray it’s waiting for me in 45 years. In the meantime… we need to work on Number 1! Ha!

Happy Anniversary, Babe. I’d proudly follow you anywhere!
