Understanding Love: she said he said

The kind where she says “I have very painful stye in my eye and I will surely die.”  He said “You will live, I will run to town and get some “stuff” for your eye.” And she lived to SEE another day. ( Last Sunday) She had the tombstone all pictured in her minds eye..one big eyeball..and it would say “She died, from a stye, in her eye.”

The kind where when she broke her ankle so seriously the Doctors didn’t know if they could save her leg..as they wheeled her away for a final stab at a surgery that might work..she said “Goodbye, I am going to die now..have a good life.”  He said “I am going to go get a haircut and I will see you later.” And he did. ( 1980) The Doctors were all idiots and said she would only walk ten years ..fifteen years tops..what do they know anyway..but she still has the crutches in the closet..just in case.

The kind where she said “Just drop me off at the Funeral Home, roll me out on their driveway and then it won’t be so far for them to pick me up when I succumb to the flu.”  He said tomorrow will be a better day..and it was. ( 2008)

I think she is a little bit drama and he hardly ever takes her seriously.  Yet they have been an almost perfect match for the better part of 44 years.

He just said “I hope you didn’t buy me a card, I was going to buy you one but I decided to buy Vitamins instead.”  She said “I didn’t buy you a Valentines Card either..I will kiss you instead.”  He said “Sounds good to me.” :)

  11. Oh God I love the way you write!! WE are the same way when it comes to cards for each other and I am the drama queen and he is just like you guy!! It has to be true love to have come as far as the two of you have. I personally think it takes a lot more to keep a relationship going when you are older and have been together longer. Although much more comfortable because you know each other so well. Loved your post and Happy Valentines day to you and Far Guy and Chancey!!

  18. This is the funniest I have read today about love & marriage.
    I could write a book but will save it for another day. We have
    been married 63 years and that is a book in itself.
