Scene From a Marriage #33,441

After successfully introducing Coraline to the original Star Wars trilogy:

“Great. Now that she knows there’s another trilogy, she wants to watch those, too. I’m not sure I can handle watching those again.”

“We’ll treat her decision to watch the prequels the same way we’d deal with her becoming vegetarian or vegan: We will respect her decision, but she’s on her own.”

“What are you going to do if she goes to college out of state?”

“We can move to be closer to her. You know, in case she needs to come home to eat, do laundry, hang out.”

“So you’re going to stalk her.”

“If moving just to stay close to someone and watching their every move is your definition of stalking, then yes, I suppose so.”

After driving out of our neighborhood on the way to day care:

“Oh my God! I forgot my phone!”

“Really? You never forget that.”

“It’s OK. I can go home at lunchtime to get it.”

A few blocks from day care:

“Oh my God! I left my work laptop at home!”

“Are you OK?”

“Ugh. I’ll drop you off at work then go home to get it.”

A few blocks from work:

“Oh my God! I forgot my wallet! It’s still in my camera bag from Coraline’s ballet class last night.”

“What is going on with you? You’re like me, but on crack.”

As he’s getting out of the car and looking through his backpack:

“Aw, crap! I left my wallet in the garage!”

Laughing my ass off:

“Oh my God! We’re senile!”

“And then we watched some Monsters vs. Aliens.”

“What?! Oh my God, I can’t believe you let her watch that!”

“Why not? She loves it.”

“Because it’s violent and scary, that’s why.¬†Wait, that’s not right, is it?”

“Good grief. You’re thinking of Alien vs. Predator.”

“Oh. Yeah, I am. Whoops. Wrong movie.”

“Puh-leez. If I were going to have Coraline watch an action movie, it would at least be a good one.”

“Why does my puppy’s breath smell like a humidor?”

Gasping: “My cigar!”

“Your cigar?”

“I was smoking a cigar outside and tucked the unfinished part in the windowsill.”

“The puppy-level windowsill?”

“Yeah.”

“Didn’t think that one out, did you?”

*Believe it or not, this was Caleb, NOT Troubadour.

Happy 13th Anniversary to My Husband

Song Lyric of the Day:

I belong with you, you belong with me / You’re my sweetheart / I belong with you, you belong with me / You’re my sweet

Lumineers / “Ho Hey

What can I say after 13 years together that I haven’t already said? Rich, you are still my best friend, the best friend I’ve ever had, in fact. Not only do you continue evolving as a wonderful, loving, supportive partner, your continuing evolution as a father leaves me in awe. I also have it on very good authority that Coraline is quite fond of you; you are the “fun” parent, after all (or so she tells me). Thank you for being our everything.

love,

me

Rich and I on our wedding day, April 8, 2000. So young ...
