Seven months ago, I bought my husband my husband what I thought was the most brilliant anniversary gift in the world. I was crushed that he absolutely hated it. Flash forward to now? I'm getting the last laugh. 

A few weeks before our first wedding anniversary, my husband made it a point to tell me that the first anniversary is the "paper anniversary" so whatever I bought him needed to be made out of paper. For some reason out that sent me into a panic. I just had a gut feeling he was going to get be something wildly creative and I didn't even know where to start.

So I brought that struggle on the air and had our listeners help me brainstorm some "paper" gift ideas. You guys had some fantastic ideas and I ultimately chose the one that I thought would make him laugh the most.

I couldn't have been more wrong. I apparently read way too much into paper gifts, because he got me a gift certificate to Shu's Idaho Running Company and one for a massage and pedicure at a spa near our apartment. I didn't think about gift certificates being made out of paper.  We got way too creative...and I ended up getting him four rolls of custom anniversary toilet paper.

He didn't laugh. He hated it. I tried to redeem myself by saying "One day we'll run out of toilet paper and you'll thank me." Little did I know that TP-ocalypse would arrive thanks to the coronavirus just a few months later.

A week ago, we were one of those couples who didn't think that coronavirus would indeed become disruptive to our every day life so we didn't go stock up on cases of toilet paper like everyone else. Well, in just seven days everything's changed...and now that day where we run out of toilet paper is no longer a joke, but an actual reality.

So...I get the last laugh after all! My present turned out to be the BEST anniversary gift ever. It just took a little while for me to get my return on the investment.
