“It's so great to find that one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life.”
Ah young love sometimes works out to be old comfortable love.
Communication is the cornerstone of a good relationship. Despite my husbands uncanny ability to know my many moods..he cannot read my mind. He is not Superman. We are much better communicators than we were 42 years ago. I try to use words like I instead of You.. “I feel tired.” versus “You should know I feel tired.” “ I am confused.. what can I help you do?” versus “You obviously are trying to do something that just won’t work.”
Old love and communication: The kind where you can finish each others sentences, the kind where you know when the other is thinking the exact same thing you are..you catch each others eye and smile..and later you compare notes and laugh. The kind where just holding hands is an expression of support encouragement and undying love. The kind that asks “What is on your agenda today and how can I help you?”
Annoyances: Oh there are many.. Today I will share a few things that irritate him..as I see it:
When I chew bubble gum and blow bubbles and pop them…although really good bubble gum is hard to find nowadays.
When I chew gum noisily with my mouth open..the snapping of gum nearly drives him nuts.
He hates my sleepwalking and talking and screaming. I cannot blame him..I don’t like it much either.
He dislikes sand on the floor..occasionally I will come in the house and grab something without taking off my shoes. For shame..for shame.
He gets grumpy when I shave my legs in the tub and forget to rinse it out.
It annoys him if I am right and he is wrong..sometimes the discussion can go on for days.
Sometimes I have time management problems..He likes to be on time..AIS ( That is A** in Seat) times are discussed and agreed upon, so no one is waiting..although sometimes I get to the car before he does..just to make a point..and then I announce the time especially if he is a minute or two late..yup it is all about communication.
So yes..we like to annoy each other sometimes:)
