Half a life and more

The scales have tipped. 17 years ago, right about this time of year, Steve and I began dating, at age 17. We thus celebrate over half our lives now spent together as a couple.

There are lots of awesome compliments I could pay Steve, regarding his being kind, intelligent, patient, and devoted; but the most important, to my mind, is that he's funny. So in this brief entry, I celebrate the Steve/Molly relationship (Stolly? Meve?) by a few Steve quotations that have become famous between us in the past 17 years:

(In the kitchen, using Frodo accent): "This is the tomato knife. You've seen it before."

(When asked what he saw in London's Tate Gallery): "Lots of pictures of people with spaniels."

(When taunting me about something): "I've got your goat! Admit it! I've got it!"
Me: (annoyed) "I don't HAVE a goat."
Steve: "That's because I TOOK IT."

(When our older child imitated the baby just lately): "No, you don't want to be like the baby. Look how dumb his pants are. They're yellow and white striped with integral feet. You wouldn't be caught dead in pants that dumb."

So in these sleep-deprived times, when we are not at our best (if I could think more clearly, I'd have a longer list of quotes), thank you especially much, my dear, for the occasional laugh. I love you! TEAM STOLLY.

I didn't realise you guys started dating that young! Wow. Congrats :)

I know! It's kind of a lucky coincidence that we still like each other. :)

Yay team Stolly! *waves pom poms* Funny husbands are worth more than their weight in gold, truly.

The goat thing cracked me right up.

Mr. P and I have hand (the upper hand) - When one of us gets it, we just raise our own hand slightly in the air (same angle as "I'm fed up to here" but higher - forehead height. We don't even have to say anything anymore.

I caught the 18 year old using it with her boyfriend the other day.

Heh! I may just end up adopting that too. Humor is essential in a long-lasting relationship; probably *the* most essential feature.

Happy almost anniversary! Yeah, it's fortunate that he at least partly shared in my LOTR fandom. We might not have survived that period otherwise. :)

Haha nice to see that some couples do make it! (And still actually have fun with each other)!
Sep. 27th, 2009 04:08 pm (UTC)
Fun is the only way to make it work, if you ask me. :)
