11 Years is a Long Time

I mentioned in my Ten on Tuesday that June 25th was our 11 year "together" anniversary. Every time we talked about it Chris would say "11 years is a really long time".  (I tried not to take offense to this.  I mean, who wouldn't want to spend 96423.9 hours with moi?  Don't answer that.)  
At first I thought it wasn't that long.  But when you think about it...

When Chris and I got together in 2002:

-Kelly Clarkson became our very first American Idol.

-Justin Bieber was 8 years old.  Still a baby.  Baby, baby, baby, oh.  Sorry.

 -The world's first cell phone equipped with a camera was introduced in the Nokia 7650.

-Friends still had two years left on TV before the series ended.

-Britney Spears had never been married (and still had all her marbles as far as we could tell).

 -Randy Couture fought Josh Barnett for the Heavyweight Championship in UFC 36.

-The US had not yet invaded Iraq.

- We (well, I) raided our dad's closets for neck ties and bought flat irons because of this new rad girl, Avril.

All of that feels like a million years ago!
I think Chris wins this one.
