Marriage…

We have been married almost 13years now and we often have a conversation about the things we say or do now that we never would have when dating.

Like… “Oh honey, you are not going to want to come over here, I had egg salad for lunch”…

So I laughed when I got this forwarded email from Traci this morning…

The sharing of marriage....
The old man placed an order for one hamburger, French fries and a drink. He unwrapped the plain hamburger and carefully cut it in half, placing one half in front of his wife. He then carefully counted out the French fries, dividing them into two piles and neatly placed one pile in front of his wife.  He took a sip of the drink, his wife took a sip and then set the cup down between them ....

As he began to eat his few bites of hamburger, the people around them were looking over and whispering. Obviously they were thinking, 'That poor old couple - all they can afford is one meal for the two of them.' As the man began to eat his fries a young man came to the table and politely offered to buy another meal for the old couple. The old man said, they were just fine - they were used to sharing everything. People closer to the table noticed the little old lady hadn't eaten a bite. She sat there watching her husband eat and occasionally taking turns sipping the drink. Again, the young man came over and begged them to let him buy another meal for them. This time the old woman said 'No, thank you, we are used to sharing everything..'

Finally, as the old man finished and was wiping his face neatly with the napkin, the young man again came over to the little old lady who had yet to eat a single bite of food and asked 'What is it you are waiting for?'


She answered…

Ha! Good one. We just had our 25th anniversary this year, and it seems like we just got married last year! Enjoy all the years and the wee one! THanks for the tip about soap - we will try that - we have moth balls, traps and cloves around right now.
It seems like yesterday our Nathan was Andrew's age, and he just got married!

We have 41 years but haven't shared any teeth,LOL.
Cute story, as I had no idea where it was going until the punch line.
