A photo of Chris and I back in the 70s when we first started dating. It’s black and white because we didn’t have color back then.
I started eating chicken wings.
Pre-Chris I hated everything about wings- eating meat off the bone like a barbarian, dirty napkins galore, and messy sauce on your cheeks. But damn it, chicken wings are delicious and Chris made me realize this.
I watch them now. I watch all of them. If left in the wilderness I’m confident I could make a fire, sterilize my water and make a canoe out of snake skin. I might just sign up for Naked and Afraid.
There are two types of people in this world: those who need a fan when they sleep and those who do not. Chris has made me a fan person and I hate him for it. What if I’m somewhere and there’s not a fan?! Like at my parents house? WHAT DO I DO???
Putting lids on things.
Chris has taught me how to put lids on things correctly so when you pull something out of the fridge, say like a tubberware of beans for example, the lid is snapped on tightly so the beans don’t spill everywhere.
Every time I recorded a show on DVR for Chris that wasn’t in HD a little piece of him died. He came close to breaking up with me numerous times I’m quite sure. In the beginning I honestly couldn’t tell. It was all the same to me. But after living with him for 100 years I get it now. And watching regular TV when you have HD is like eating eggs plain when you have Siracha in the fridge. It’s just silly.
Same can be said for sound quality when watching TV/movies. Why are guys so into this stuff?
Siracha and Lawrys.
Put them on everything or get out. I went through a phase where I didn’t put salt on anything for years. And then I met Chris and all hope was lost.
I used to be an early riser on weekdays and weekends. But Chris’s ability to sleep in has rubbed off on me. Sometimes on a winter weekend we don’t get out of bed before 11! I feel like a lazy college kid just writing this terrible fact.
I love it now. Chris has great taste in beer and he’s always bringing home new stuff to try. We know our corner liquor store owner by name (it’s Vinny.) Vinny special orders new beers for Chris and since we frequent there so often (with Harlow) he also keeps special dog treats behind the counter. So what I’m saying is I used to be a “vodka and lemon water kind of girl” GAG! And now I only drink beer.
I’m sure this list could go on and on, but we’ll wrap it up here. What have you started doing thanks to your significant other?
Also… I think we have a date set. For real this time. Perhaps a wedding update is in order for tomorrow?
