Thanks for reading!

The store employee smiled her plastic smile as Cate wandered around, first looking at cashmere sweaters and then heading over to the ties.

“Is there anything I can help you with?” the employee asked, looking ready to pounce.

“No, thank you,” Cate said. “I’m just looking for something for my husband.”

“Any special occasion?”


“Oh, how lovely. How many years?”

So much for not needing any help, Cate thought. She’d known from years of working retail during her college years that if anyone refused help, you back off and leave them alone. “Help” was simply the code word for “would you like to make small talk while you choose whatever it is you want?”

But the employee was eager. She must have been on commission, and it wouldn’t surprise Cate, looking at the prices of some of the items. But, it was their ten-year wedding anniversary, so she had to make an effort.

“Ten years.”

“Wow. That’s a long time.”

It sure is, Cate thought. Even though she’d been thinking about their ten year anniversary for weeks now, hearing that said aloud made it all the more real. Ten years… Of course, she was happily married, but even having the most amazing thing over and over could make it lose its shine. She loved pasta, for example, but if she had pasta every night for dinner, she’d be aching for something else.

It couldn’t be helped, being a married woman, after all, so in the end they tried to spice things up with different things. Some toys here, some roleplay there. One night they even tried a sex swing, which found a home in the garage after one use, forgotten about. It reminded her of how she liked to change the living room curtains every few years. No matter how often you changed the dressing, they were still the same window panes, year after year.

In the end, she chose a scarf made of lambswool and a pair of leather gloves. It was getting to be winter, after all, and John often complained about how cold his hands got on the commute in the morning. She chastised herself for not getting him something sexier, but with how long they had been married, he was probably lucky they weren’t giving each other toasters or oven mitts.
