Saturday Centus - The Paper

What???  Saturday Centus is about paper!!!   It's like Jenny had me in mind when she supplied this prompt "Although the traditional gift for a first anniversary is paper ..."
Nah ... actually she had her little group of merry Centusians in mind because it is the one year anniversary of the Centus ... and don't I wish I had been along for the full ride ... I would have really accomplished something ...
Here is my little offering ... and Happy Anniversay to Jenny and her absolutely fun and fab meme!!!

Although the traditional gift for a first anniversary is paper he knew that was not what he would buy for her.
He had known, long before they were married, in fact before they were even “officially” dating that she was a self described paper addict.  She scrapbooked and had a craft room full of paper meticulously sorted and stacked, then there were reams of specialty paper for home decorating and then the books & magazines … he had never truly realized the extent of her book and paper addiction till after their marriage, when it started to multiply by the month.  No, he thought … this year she’s getting an E-reader.


Now, just click on the button to read the other fab and wonderful takes on the prompt ... you are sure to find some totally enjoyable reads!!!

I love this because I can see my husband thinking the same thing...except not about paper, about candles and soaps. He can't believe how many I have.

=)

PS. I LOVE my Kindle, btw, even though it isn't particularly pertinent here... ;)

Jo, This is such a sign of the times! You made me see it, too - stacks of paper everywhere, magazines in piles. Clever husband. Hopes she doesn't return the Kindle!

Excellent! (I don't own any kind of e-reader yet...but resistance is probably futile.)

Jo! I love this! What a totally cute and unexpected use of this prompt!

This felt so true...is it perhaps slightly autobiographical?

Thanks for linking. I always love reading what you have to share.
