Author's Chapter Notes:
I got so bored! I read the list of objects I could include and this was the first thing I thought of. Halfway through writing it I suddenly remembered that it was supposed to be anniversary related . . . then I had to awkwardly stick it in there . . .

Chapter End Notes:
Hmmmmmmmmmm . . . I can tell this is going to be one of those things I'll read in a week and re-discover myself as an idiot. XD
