Husband came home last night and asked me if I would be offended if we returned the iPad toilet paper holder thing. I’m not but it’s a testament to his sense of humor that he wasn’t offended that I gave it to him in the first place.
He’s keeping the What’s Your Poo Telling You book. As he should! Maybe he’ll look in the book instead of asking me.
A few folk asked me what we were doing for our anniversary and seemed disappointed that we didn’t have grand plans. By that I mean, plans grander than going out to our favorite steak place dressed the way we always do.
Early on in our marriage, I might have been disappointed too but, married life is what you make of it, not what others – and in particular Hollywood and Hallmark – think you should make of it. For us, dressing up in fancy clothes and fancy shoes would have made us uncomfortable and itchy. And uncomfortable and itchy would have led to a fight about something or with someone. And who wants that nonsense on any night out, especially a night meant to celebrate your commitment to each other.
Last night, husband took me to McDonalds for dessert after dinner. For old time sake, we went through the drive-thru and got a Mcflurry to eat while sitting on our couch in our comfy's and watching TV. It was a perfect day – for us.
Once I gave a friend advice of what to say to her husband when they were fighting. His response: I’m not taking advice from a woman whose wedding included the saying “Do you want fries with that!” After I stopped laughing, I told them I give good advice despite my drive-thru wedding. Married life is what you make of it, not what others think you should make of it. If a book about poo works for your relationship, gift away. Just be clear to ask for the diamond sparkly ring if that’s what you want. Or in Husband’s case, the full studio set up in the basement. The full studio he will be getting in pieces for the next few anniversaries and birthdays and arbor days. So, bye-bye iPad toilet paper holder thing and hello plug that costs $$ and I have no clue what it does. Husband wants you so welcome to our home.
