My SmartMan and Me - 11 years

Friday, April 3, 2009
Today is my SmartMan's and my 11th anniversary.

Sometimes I'm not easy to live with (shocking, I know). Sometimes he's not, either.

But we're still together.

I think that's the case because in spite of our individual idiosyncrasies, we both make a concerted effort to treat our relationship, and each other, with respect. We've never indulged in name calling, comments uttered simply to hurt, or general nastiness. Since both of us are capable of wielding very sharp tongues, I'd have to say that I'm glad I met the SmartMan after I learned this lesson. Otherwise I'm quite sure the outcome would have been much different.

So as long as the days where he makes me laugh far outnumber the days when I want to stab him with a fork, I think it's safe to say we're that boring old married couple. You know - that one.

And that suits me just fine.

Not that there's anything wrong with that, if you're both into that sort of thing...
