10 years

Today we've been married for ten years. In honor of our anniversary, we'd like to offer a list of our top ten reasons we've stayed together.

10. Complementary neuroses.
9. Shared love of a good food adventure.
8. Shared love of animals.
7. Intellectual and political sympatico.
6. Large library and menagerie of animals creates so many problems in dividing equitably that it's just easier to stay together.
5. Biffle has to stay because Alison pays all the bills.
4. Alison has to stay because she is incapable of cooking, cleaning, mowing the lawn, changing the sheets, or emptying the litter box, and rarely showers without a reminder.
3. We're actually pretty good at singing in harmony.
2. Alison loves Biffle's family, and he loves hers.
1. Stubbornness.

Congrats! With your wedding I associate a lot of singing and a days-long discussion of whether The Phantom Menace was going to be any good.
