Things I know now about my wife

10 Jun

Zanne and I are celebrating 3 years of togetherness on Tuesday 14 June (our wedding anniversary is in October). Accordingly, I dedicate this week’s “Things I Know” to her.

Zanne, here are things I know about you after 3 years of love:

1. I know now that “I have this idea” is a phrase I will hear regularly for the rest of my life. I can only wonder how many business names we will own in our lifetimes.

 2. You are passionate about many things – and on any given day those things might change multiple times, but not before you’ve brainstormed and chatted enthusiastically about each one. For example, you might wake up wanting to pursue writing/teaching/softball and go to sleep wanting to be a pilot/singer/volunteer. Your fickleness makes my head spin – me the concluder-producer. But it also brings me much amusement.

3. You are positive to your core.

4. Your interpretive dancing is rivalled by no other. Especially your in-the-shower numbers.

5. You let me think I’m clever.

6. We have the same moral code, sense of humour and inability to handle large amounts of wine. Everything else is the opposite. Including our ability to find keys, get out of bed in the morning, write funny messages in greeting cards and apply eye makeup.

7. There are 3 of us in this relationship: you, me and your hair.

8. If you could marry a plate of nachos, I’d be dumped.

9. You are kind, in a way that sounds made-up eg. giving strangers a fiver to help with their train ticket/groceries when they’re caught short; giving a school kid your umbrella so she didn’t have to stand in the rain; returning $20 you found in the pocket of pants you purchased on eBay.

10. We were made for each other and I will never get enough – you can’t outgrow something sewn under your skin.

Thank you again to Yay for Home! for the opportunity to participate in Things I Know.
