Love and marriage, go together like a horse and carriage.. Of so Frank Sinatra Said.
There is no such thing as a perfect marriage, despite what the fiction novels tell us and the TV shows and movies.
The truth is sometimes I wonder what was I thinking, and sometimes I think mayhem thoughts. We argue, we fight, we blow up at each other. We bicker from dawn to dusk. Think Archie Bunker and Edith. I say white, he says black, we are just alike but different views.. he swears if I loved something I would say I don't just to be opposite of what he likes.
I KNOW I AM RIGHT and he is Wrong....the fun happens when we both want to be the HORSE!
The reason we do is because we are both Archie Bunker types. We both must be in control, must always have the last word, must always be RIGHT. Our type A personalities are identical. The only big difference is he is not a social person and I am....
One example of how he makes me crazy. 3 years ago we argued and fought for weeks over a SUV for me to drive.
In just a few days I sat in more than 30 cars, making him crazy (plus the salespeople crazy). I would see one I liked, open the door and sit in it and get out and say NO... he said its perfect. Perfect for whom? I said I can't see over the steering wheel. (I have NO butt at all, and sit low, putting my eyes level with most steering wheels, also if the car was to low to the ground I could not get in and out)
He is GM to the bone which limited a used car that would FIT me. I opened the door to the KIA Sorrento and said, it fits like a glove, I can see 360 degrees.
|the horn in my Kia, it is gray not brown, this is an edit|
HE SAID if you want it lets get it and we did...I said it is not a GM.. he said If you like it, get it. It's a nice car.
Fast forward 3 years of flawless driving I got in the KIA and the dashboard was blinking nonsense about low tires and a few other things and he said
I WOULD NEVER BUY A KIA, I told you to buy GM......I will let you imagine the RESULT of that comment...think Fire and Brimstone and you might get close...
The one thing that has given us 33 years together is HUMOR.... sometimes we argue over such stupid things we burst into laughter.
