Okay, I did a meme (pul-eeeeze, will someone tell me how this word is pronounced?) last week and mentioned how I really didn’t like doing them, but I was tagged by Moonspun Spins, an astute woman that shares her life with honesty, insightfulness and intelligence; and couldn’t say no. Especially because it’s about you and your significant other and Valentine’s Day is fast approaching. So here goes.
First I think you should read this post. It will help answer some of these questions. Go ahead and read it now. No, I mean right now.
Okay, now I can continue (if you still didn’t read that post, go do it now, we’ll all wait).
Where did the two of you meet?
We met through a mutual acquaintance, sort of. I was going through a divorce at the time and was invited to a Memorial Day Barbeque. He was there that day, but I started dating the guy whose house the party was at.
What was the first thought that went through your head when you first met him?
I couldn’t say the first time I met him. I do know that I knew he was a good person, a really great guy.
Do you remember what he was wearing?
Where did you go for your first date?
A comedy club…if you still haven’t read the post linked above you need to…you’ll get a good laugh.
Where was the first time you kissed?
Again, please read the post linked above for this story.
When was the first time you realized you liked him?
I liked him right off the bat, just not in that way.
How long did you know him before you became a couple?
Four and a half years.
How did he propose to you?
Here, this is in his words, “Because we had talked about making the commitment to each other and knowing that we would be starting out with barely a pot to piss in, I thought it best not to spend money on a shiny rock to show my love. In our talks she said she would accept a cigar band, so on Valentine’s Day I decided that I would give her a cigar band with flowers and ask her to marry me. Thankfully, she said Yes!”
Do you have kids together?
Have you ever broken the law together?
Do you trust him?
With all my being.
Do you see him as your partner in your future?
I can’t imagine anyone else.
What is the best gift he gave you?
He took over as a father to my two kids, both teenagers at the time. Yikes! And he did a great job. I think they both look at him as their father, not their step-father.
What is one thing he does that gets on your nerves?
Where do you see each other 15 years from now?
Hopefully retired and enjoying the rest of our lives together living somewhere other than Illinois, perhaps in Mayberry?…but close enough to still see our family.
What causes the most arguments?
We’re both Taureans, so we both can be a bit stubborn. We don’t have that many arguments, they’re more like disagreements, and they usually arise when we’re debating some irrelevant topic.
How long have you been together?
Fourteen years as of last month; married for 14 as of June 28th.
Who do you Tag? What? We’re playing tag? Well the following are ‘It’.
Doris of Poetic License
Richard of Let It Blurt!
Skeeter of AtomicZebra7
Hallie of Wonderful World of Wieners
Selma of Selma in the City
Kat of 3 Bedroom Bungalow
Oh, and…seriously, how do you pronounce meme?
