Last month we invented a word to describe the first time someone stumbles upon the online presence of a person who becomes an important part of their life; the electronic version of the day you met. That word was DISCOVERSARY.
DISCOVERSARY – noun 1. The yearly recurrence of the day you first discovered the online presence of someone who has become an important part of your life: Our second discoversary is next month. 2. The celebration or commemoration of such a date.
-adjective 1. Pertaining to a discoversary: You should see the discoversary gift I got.
This word was suggested to me by Sarah.
The reason I wanted to create a new word was to commemorate the fact that this coming Sunday will mark two years to the day since I first discovered that my wife, The Slackmistress, existed. (On a related note yesterday marked 15 months since we got married and as you my know, we didn’t meet for the first time until almost three months after our discoversary , so you can do the math and figure out how fast thing happened once we met.)
The reason I mention this today is because I need some more help. While I have a word to describe the day I don’t know how to spend a second discoversary. Should we spend it clicking blog links looking for more awesome people? Should we read the embarrassing details of our blog archives and then watch The Thin Man? Should I buy a gift? You tell me.
