LIFE IS A COLORING BOOK
NBC News titled me “The World’s Most Romantic Man.”
I don’t really think I deserve the title but it’s fun to have anyway.
It would be a great pickup line, but fortunately I am very happily
married to a wonderful, beautiful, bright, caring, gentle, kind woman
and have no need of pickup lines.
One of the reasons many people in the media have said that I
am so romantic is that I like to celebrate my wedding anniversary
every month. In celebration of my 75th (monthly) anniversary with
my wife, I decided to create a gift that would help us reflect back
on our first 6 and 1/4 years of marriage.
I came up with the idea of creating a coloring book her. I
took a sheet of paper and tried to write down the most significant,
memorable and happy experiences we had since we were married.
I even took out our scrap books to make sure I wasn’t missing
any major events. Once I had about 30 ideas I began sketching
them on plain white paper. I admit I am not much of an artist but
even stick figures can get an idea across.
Once I completed doodling all the scenes with pencil, I traced
over them with a black felt-tip pen and wrote what the occasion
was just in case my drawing was so bad that she wouldn’t be able
to decipher the event. I emphasized the childlike look of the book
by writing with my left hand.
Once all the sketches were complete I drew a cover and
then took them to a copy store and had all the pages duplicated
onto heavy paper and then bound. I even made an extra in case
she wanted one without coloring in it. I gave her our coloring book
along with a pack of 64 crayons. The most expensive gift in the
world could not have made her happier.
I better begin planning for my 100th anniversary!
