Hubby and I went on an impromptu date tonight after the girls’ softball game. Can you tell by these snippets of conversation that we’ve been together for a while?
(Walking to the car from the drug store)
Me: We work well together.
Him: I was just thinking that today at work.
Him: That we work well together.
(In the grocery store line – I stood at the end of the checkout, next to the bags, while he was paying)
Me: Sir, would you like some help out tonight?
Him: Yes, ma’am, that would be very nice. (others in line chuckle)
Me: Sir, would you like me to go home with you tonight?
Him: Well! (he follows me, as I sling the one bag of ours over my shoulder and saunter away)
(In the car on the way home after dinner)
Him: “Baby love, my baby love….Baby love, my baby love…Baby love, my baby love…Baby love, my baby love…” (a la a broken record)
Me: (spacing out)
Him: I’m so disappointed.
Him: You didn’t tell me to be quiet! The only reason I stopped was because I was annoying myself!
I don’t know what’s funnier to me – that we have totally random communication like this with each other, or that we run errands on our dates! All I know is that he’s a nut, and I love him.
