Still Happily Ever After

27 06 2018

Yesterday was our 33rd wedding anniversary.

We did not exchange gifts, which is exactly what we both wanted.

We’ve reached a wonderful place in our relationship We’ve stopped trying to impress each other with over-the-top, work-too-hard, grand gestures. We no longer feel the need for those long soul-searching conversations (that so often lead couples straight down the path to Marital Spat Central.)  We know each other very well and – great news – not only do we still love each other, we still really LIKE each other.

For those of you who have not had quite the number of years of on-the-job training as we have, here’s a snapshot of our life together. It just might give you an idea of how we stay happily married!

Here are the Top Ten Old Married Lewis Conversations, in their Entirety:

Number Ten

K: What would you like to do this weekend?
P: What do we have DVR’d?

Number Nine

K: Would you like to go out to dinner?
P: There’s tuna fish in the kitchen.

Number Eight

K: Would you like me to drive?
P: (Silence – incredulous look and slow shake of head, as wife slides behind the wheel.)

Number Seven

P: (Upon hearing growling/cursing) Can I help you?
K: No, this damn thing (laptop – always the laptop!) doesn’t work . . . it’s working.

Number Six

K: (As I am finishing my first pot of the day) Do you have coffee?
P: (Watching my not-morning-person-husband shuffle across the kitchen)I could use another cup.

Number Five

P: What would you like for dinner?
K: Whatever you want.

Number Four

K: What did you feed the (guinea) pigs?
P: Everything in the fridge, all day.

Number Three

P: Can I have some money?
K: You know where my wallet is.

Number Two

P: It is a BEAUTIFUL day!
K: (Looks at wife as if I am speaking in Klingon and returns to reading emails.)

and the Number One Conversation is . . .

K: What would you like for our anniversary?
P: More anniversaries with you.

We were much cuter in 1985, but we’re so much happier than we could have imagined back then. (Okay, I still think he’s cute!)

Thank you, Maureen. Love, accompanied by respect – and a few belly laughs – really does conquer all.
