15.5 Years!

Hubby and I will celebrate our 14th Anniversary in July. Yes, I know, practically illegal we married so young. Before that we *whisper* we lived together for over a year. This is 15.5 years of US! Here's what that gets you.

Actual conversation between us:
me: I called to ask a quick question. Member that green thing, cds, years ago?
him: Try the pocket on the cooler thing.
me: I was thinking there too.

Okay seriously people, who else would have any idea what the hell we were talking about? It's like our own language a shorthand only we know. They should use married couples to pass military secrets!

So many moons ago I had a green cd holder, you know the small ones you put the cds in the sleeves and take in the car? I got it at a trade show for free, hence, how I know it was before kids, when I got paid to do stuff like travel. In my memory it has all my best cds in it. Okay, they are obviously all the best of pre-1999. When I quit buying music for myself and started listening to Barney. If they were my best cds, why are they missing? Because no car I have owned until now has had a cd player. And everything we listen to now is on a computer or iPod, including the cds we own. Can we say iTunes?

So you know where the conversation went after that, right?
him: you know you can burn cds, right?
me: yes, but I've never done it
him: silence
me: maybe I should try
him: silence
me: but then I'd have to find the blank cds
him: silence
me: I know, in the office, they say CD on them.

This is what ya get for 15.5 years, someone actually knowing what the hell the 1o year old green thing is, and actually having a guess of WHERE it is and a conversation with yourself.


Awww...but you don't know what you would do without him!!!!

My hubby and I also have a kind of secret language, but it involves much sign language ... and giggling.

Glad to see two people still in love after so long!

Too funny, Karen - I did foreign and domestic beer, too - and chose Guinness! But your pictures are MUCH more artistic than mine - beautiful, really. So nice that now I want a beer!

I can sooo totally relate! (K, '90's much??!!)

I want to know if you too fight with each other in public with threats etc. and other people tell you how funny you are.

PC and I constantly bicker in front of people because it makes them laugh. They always say how cute and funny we are!

Chris, they do laugh at us when we bicker. But it's so much more fun for us to make fun of some other bickering couple.
