(this is definitely me trying to take a serious kissing picture and him not taking it seriously and, i think
by the upturn of his toes, he backed away slowly just after the picture took.)
you know, me and the steve-man... though we be married, we don't agree on everything. (you don't say?!) and gosh, isn't this whole live in the same house forever with this person that you agreed upon a funny thing anyway??? who ever thought it up? and not only that but we're gonna procreate? i mean, you need to pass a test to get your driver's license but some whispered sweet nothings, a little red wine and - BOOM - you find yourself raising another human being?!!
so, well, here are some things that we both agree upon and definitely do not agree upon.
// pillows, bed-sharing, and the like:
steve might be like half-assed, "where's my pillow?" and if it doesn't leeeap into his arms, he will just take mine. (not if i'm currently using it. that, my friends, would be cause for couch-sleeping.) but, ew! pillows should not be shared! ever! my head and my head only may touch my pillow. right?!?? and on bed-sharing, beds are only for pajamas and clean ones at that. do you lay on your sheets in your street clothes? don't even tell me. so, yeah, steve and i have different bed-hygiene and his is way looser than mine so suffice it to say, there's an imaginary line and he shouldn't cross it.
// paul simon + his groovy beats:
i play a lot of paul simon. from pretty much graceland to so beautiful so what i don't think the man can do much wrong. and some of those cds are like sweet nectar to my soul. steve thinks a lot of his songs are too busy, too complicated, "too clever by half" (what does that even mean??!), too much what steve, magic in them!?!? it's just theeeee most ridiculous. it really should be a deal-breaker when you consider my love for paul but i let this one slide.
// modern family:
we both still think this show is ace. i don't hear as many people talking about it anymore but we both will always get in bed with a laptop for an episode. our favorite, if i haaaad to say, would be cameron. but don't make me say because phil and gloria are not far behind.
though we're strapped down by our army of kids and a lack of funds at the moment, we look forward to traveling together and, for now, the traveling in our dreams suffices and sometimes quite well. we've got plans and we really like each other for the most part, so i look forward to hitting the open road with that guy some day.
// interior decorating:
we don't always agree on this. and while i wish he would just not have an opinion, he does. so last night i asked him to, "show me the pinterest board that you've been looking at for a year plus hoping to make a reality one day." he couldn't. thus, his opinions count for 30% and mine for 70%. i'm kidding, but only sort of.
// health food + healthy eating in general:
he gets back from his annual physical and, after hearing his cholesterol is a little high, starts going for the apples and pears and, you know, whole fruits in the house. this lasts, oh, 3 days. it happens every year. then, he gets over it and goes back to foods that crunch in his mouth. here's the thing--he's a pretty healthy eater. eggs or oatmeal for breakfast and something veggie based for lunch. but he's not a fruit guy. he says, "they're too inconsistent." lays potato chips? well, you know what you're getting every time you reach into that crinkly bag. i choose to eat fruits all year long and yes, even suffer through the occasional mealy apple. he gives it 3 days. i always laugh as he heads straight for the fruit basket after his physical.
// mexican food:
do you know that it might've been a deal breaker if we couldn't agree on this? mexican food is where it's at.
// going to the movies:
we both love going to the movies. and back when we were wee little chaps (what?) we did this fairly often. and do you know... some people actually don't care to go to the movies?! we love it, me and steve-man. give me that guy, a coke, a large popcorn, and a dark theatre and it's pretty close to my heaven.
you and yours? agree on most, disagree on most?
