Vera knew her husband could at times be forgetful. She worried he might forget their silver wedding anniversary. Silver often found its way into conversations.
“Jared, have you noticed how my hair has turned silver over the years we’ve been married? Do you remember we first met on the Queen’s Silver Jubilee?”
She only hoped he took the hint and was pleased when, on the day, he handed her a box, “This is gold. It’s our silver anniversary.”
Jared smiled as he kissed her, “Silver is second place at the Olympics. My love for you has always only been first.”
