WHAT THE HELL

Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like

A love song for our anniversary

This is for my wife, who married me twenty-two years ago today. Happened to be a Saturday that year too!

When you love someone very much, you must write a song about her. I did the best I could with the tools at my disposal. (The dog at the end represents her big white mutt, Ned, who became my son.)

Happy anniversary, baby. Here’s to at least twenty-eight more (so we can hit fifty!).

      Thanks, Susan! We have a nice day planned (a hike, of course), but mostly just basking in great memories.

    Does she really have a bullet hole in her car door or are you just being edgy there?

      She did indeed. Lived in the Mission District at the time, which was a tad scary.

      She really can write backward too. πŸ˜‰

        Had some fun myself in the Mission when martinis came back into vogue, ’98, off Dolores. Such a sad song, Dolores.

        Small world. My wife lived on 20th between Dolores & Mission — long before the gentrification got going through there. Bruno’s had great martinis even then … 🍸

        I can read upside down and backwards. Does that count for anything?

        That’s just weird, man. πŸ˜•

      Heh heh. I’m much more tolerable in person than online … πŸ˜‰

    Congrats Kevin.

      Thanks, John. I know you and your wife must be way ahead of us, though … Congrats to you too!

        Well we have known each other for thirty years but have only been married 18. So you are the champ.

    A belated Happy Anniversary! Frankly, I’m glad my husband doesn’t write songs and sing them to me πŸ˜‰ Greg and I have been married for 27 years now, living together for 30. Doesn’t seem possible, but, as you know, when you’re having fun …

      You guys go back to ’86? Now that is admirable. I’m jealous. I would have loved to experience “We Are The World” with Sue. πŸ˜‰

        lol!

        Well, we started dating in early ’83 but then Greg joined the Peace Corps and left for 2 years. Just depends on what you choose as the starting date πŸ˜‰
