I'm a little crazy. I know that might be hard to pick up on here on the interwebz, but it's a fact.
My husband married me knowing this. He knows that I do not possess a filter between my brain and mouth, and that I like to debate the uses of the word racket v racquet, and that I can't sleep at night knowing the toothpaste cap has not been screwed back onto the tube.
He also knows that I won't use towels that aren't white unless it's at the gym, and I can't function through life without Double Stuf Oreos.
Living with all that and then some? That is love, people.
Sometimes, I'm a little surprised he can put up with me, but then I remember all of the endearing things I say to him throughout our days together. Here are some gems:
Exhibit A (usually said while combing my hair):
"I think my hair has stopped growing. Where's a ruler?"
Exhibit B (daily question):
"Where did I put that thing I had in my purse yesterday that had the number to the place I need to go to next week about the whatever?"
Exhibit C (weekends for us):
"Let's go see a movie."
OK, what movie?
"I don't know. You pick."
But you suggested the movies.
"But I asked you first."
You didn't ask. You said let's go see a movie.
"No, I asked, let's go see a movieEEEeeE? Like as a question."
"Pick a different one."
Exhibit D (when he proposed):
"Remember that one time you asked me to marry you, and I said, "Are you serious?" ha ha."
Exhibit E (that time-of-the-month comment):
"Would you still find me attractive if I stopped shaving my legs? Because I'm considering this."
Exhibit F (since I started couponing):
"If I stopped working at the office, I would have all the time I need to coupon and save us more money."
But then we wouldn't have as much money in the first place.
"But I would coupon the shit out of those fruit snacks you like."
Exhibit G (...every 4 days):
"Should I take a shower? It's been 4 days."
Exhibit H (this is why we don't do chores together):
"Why didn't you put the towels away?"
I did. They're in the bathroom.
"They aren't folded though.
I did fold them!
"But they aren't folded like hotel towels."
We don't live in a hotel.
