A relationship meme

From Steph, at "A Little Bit of Happy"
Relationship meme
1. Where did you meet? Well, we first met at his sister's wedding, but he was with a , um, person of questionable integrity (okay- tramp. I said it) so I didn't stick around. But then, a year or two later, his parents, who were friends of mine, invited me over to supper, and then got their coats on and left me with him! (he was trampless at that point) 2. How long did you date?Officially? Two weeks before we got engaged. Then engaged for 6 months. Then married.3. How old is he? 46. Yup, younger than me (of course, I am only thirty nineteen, but...) 4. Who eats more? Him. 5. Who said “I love you” first? Simple- he did, but not from my lack of hinting.6. Who is taller? He is 6 foot 2. I am a Shetland pony. 7. Who sings better? Well, I think I do, but he plays a mean guitar! 8. Who is smarter? We both are smart, but in different ways. He builds stuff. Amazing stuff. Like airplanes. That fly with passengers in them. I am NOT kidding. And, he can fix ANYTHING (and I do mean anything- we have never called a repair man since we got married) And I have a head for book stuff. But we are both teachers, so learning is what we do.9.Whose temper is worse? There'd be a tie on that one. 10. Who does the laundry? In order to have regular coloured laundry, and not the pink kind, I am the laundry person. 11. Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? Him. Always has. 12. Who pays the bills? Me! He has to ask if there is enough money in the bank to buy things that are 50 dollars!!!!! (he has NO idea) 13. Who cooks dinner? Me again. However, he does all the BBQ- I get it all ready, mind you, but he cooks it.14. Who drives when you are together? He does, but that way I can knit. I suppose I COULD knit and drive, but I don't think anyone would want to see that. 15. Who is more stubborn? Him. Couldn't be me. Oh no. No way. 16. Who kissed whom first? He kissed me. And then he, well, let's keep that part private!!!!!!!! 17. Who is the first to admit to being wrong? He would NEVER admit he was wrong. Ever. So that falls to me, if I want to keep the peace. 18. Whose parents do you see the most? My mom- she lives about 5 minutes away. His parents are about an hour and a half drive away. 19. Who proposed? He did. after he had cooked a delicious spicy stuffed chicken dinner (his own recipe!!!!!) for a bunch of my friends. He even got down on one knee!!!!!! 20. What’s his best physical attribute? Forearms. Strong, muscular, "working man" forearms. Oooo baby. 21. Who has more friends? Hmm- we both have a lot of acquaintances, but few friends. 22. What are you most proud of him for? For giving me his high school diploma for a wedding present. It took a whole lot of guts to go back to school and get it. 23. Who has more siblings? We're even at two. He has a brother and a sister, I have 2 sisters. But I have 64 first cousins!!!!!!!24. Who wears the pants in the family? We each share a leg. And those pants go on one leg at a time.

So if anyone wants to play tag, please grab this meme- but I send out a specific challenge to Diane at Yarn Tails, and to Bea at Baa Baa Black Sheep, and to Ruth at Knitting on Impulse. It is spill time, ladies.

Oh- and last night, after my husband got the computer repaired (love you, honey), we thought the old girl (the computer! Not me!) needed a little boost for being so good. So we bought her a new 21.7 inch slimline monitor! Hoo hah!

Yikes, I'll have to give some thought as to which beans to spill...
