I've been tagged! It's been awhile since I've done a meme, so I'm excited! Yay! Melissa, over at Hope for the Hopeless, has tagged me for a relational meme about me and the Hunny. So grab a soda and popcorn and settle in people. Well, you're not in for much, but I'll give ya what I got.
How long have you been together?
Seventeen years - I burned down the kitchen of the lady I lived with and called the Hunny to moan about having no place to eat Easter dinner. Poor me. :)
How long did you date?
Eight months. Well, okay - we dated for a month, got engaged, then got married 7 months later.
How old is he?
8 months younger - he's 39. Yes, I robbed the cradle. :) At least, he loves to tell me I did. This last year really sucks - I turned 40 in the fall and he's still in his 30's till summer. :(
Who said ‘I love you’ first?
He probably did. He's good that way. I love him for it.
Who is taller?
He's six foot and I'm 5'8". Do the math.
Who is smarter?
Oh geez. What a brutal question! Who made this meme?
Me, of course. No, really! I can say that because the Hunny doesn't read often. ;) Seriously, though, we have vastly different types of intelligence, so I'd place us as equal, but in different ways. Really!
Who does the laundry?
I do several loads a day. Ugh. The kids fold and put away their clothes. Well, sometimes I fold but the kids always put away. I put away everything else.
Who does the dishes?
Depends. About 50% of the time the kids do the dishes. I do them most of the rest of the time. The Hunny actually does a better job, having spent years in food service management, but only occasionally will take the kitchen hostage and cook and clean like a madman. I love it when that happens!
Who sleeps on the right side of the bed?
Regardless of our location, the Hunny always gets the right side. No clue why. It works.
Who pays the bills?
The Hunny makes the dough, I pay bills.
Who mows the lawn?
The Hunny used to mow, but now Oatmeal Head mows. Yay! I haven't mowed a lawn since high school, when I mowed for cash.
Who cooks dinner?
Depends on what you mean by cook. :) I usually make dinner, but the Hunny commandeers the kitchen some weekends and just has fun. He's discovered the joy of cooking and I love it!
Who is more stubborn?
I am definitely. He will NOT argue that one.
Who kissed who first?
It's a sad thing, I know, but I don't remember. (hangs head in shame)
Who asked who out?
Remember that whole burning down the kitchen thing? I didn't really "ask him out", necessarily, but I did.
The Hunny did. It was something we had discussed. But in the parking lot of the Hard Rock Cafe in New Orleans, he gave me a ring and proposed. At that point we'd already agreed it was a done deal. He can be romantic.
Who is more sensitive?
It is SOOO not me! I am NOT the girl here! The absent minded professor, yes. Never sensitive. Unless you touch me. Then we have a problem.
Y'all, this has been fun! So much fun that I'm going to wish it on five of my best bloggy friends! Well, five friends, since at least one has already said, "No memes!" The list? The Color of Home, In the Gutter, Bold & Free, Confessions of a Karate Mom and Mom Knows Everything. Yes, there are several others whose questions I'd love to read answers to, but I'm not officially tagging them. Just a few of those are, if they're up to it, Mayberry Magpie, Baby Burgh's Mom and Straight Shooter. I'd be up all night if I had to list everyone I'd like to hear from on this. Speaking of which, I'm going to fiddle with the post options and see if I can set this up to post early in the morning. What fun!
Until I write again ...
