Perhaps those of you married to programmers, computer geeks or just a certain personality type can identify with this tale...
Last night while doing dishes:
me: You should try the lemon tea, you might like it.
J: I'll just have the vanilla.
me: Are you sure? Don't you want to try something new? It's really good.
J: No, I'll just take the lemon.
me: *sigh* Okay.
the sound of dishes clinking in the sink
J: I'm the kind of guy who likes to find a good thing and then stick to it.
me: I know.
pause for more dish washing and counter wiping
J: That's why I married you.
J: You're my ***#32, Chef's Special Chicken.
I know I am. And I love it! Wouldn't trade places with anyone :)
