Today I’m going to gush about my husband, Nick, for no other reason than I want to. But don’t worry, I won’t get too mushy. One of the things that first attracted me to him – aside from his dashing good looks – was that he always made me laugh even though he has this really dry, sarcastic sense of humor. I’m almost the complete opposite (no surprise there since we’re perfect opposites) because I like pun-y, corny jokes that my six-year-old nephew might tell. My favorite joke, for example, is What did the fish say when we ran into the wall? “Dam!”
Hahahahahahhahaha. Cracks me up every time. He doesn’t get it, though 😉
You can probably imagine what it’s like when the two of us are together. We often have conversations that go a little something like this:
Me: I need to moisturize my hands. They’re so dry.
Nick : Drink more water. Moisturize from the inside.
Me: “moisturize from the inside”… that could be a slogan for something.
Nick: Yeah, water.
He ain’t wrong….
Then, of course, you have these gems:
Nick: those look creepy
me: you look creepy
me: I wish we could get a goat and make cheese with its milk
Nicholas: I’m not a farmer
me: I know, you’re a grouch
And this text that shows real love between husband and wife:
Me: [at the store, getting essentials for the upcoming snow day]: I got soup, sandwiches, and cereal. Anything else?
Nick: Not off the top of my head. I’m getting beer. You need any wine?
One morning I gave the dogs a small bite of my scrambled eggs at breakfast and Nick said I would be the type of mother that would spoil my kids by giving them whatever they wanted. When I got to work, I find a message from him saying he wants to get a new phone:
me: it’s not in the budget
Nick: that’s not fair
me: well, life isn’t fair.
See, I’d make a great mother! 😀
The Kilwin’s lady gave Nick more ice cream than me and his response was, “Sometimes my good looks get me things.”
Other things you’ll overhear in our house:
Me: Can you mute the tv, please? I want to watch this seal dance to the Backstreet Boys.
Nick: Oh, I heard about that….
Not only do we make a great team, but we’re really funny — and fun — to be around. I love him so much and wouldn’t want to spend my life with anyone else!
