Snarky Love

The following conversation took place after I had mentioned something about myself (which I don't quite remember now) and MTL had responded with a bit of surprise.

Me: I know I told you about that before.

MTL: Yeah, but that was like, four years ago or something.

Me: (laughs) So how long, in nonliteral terms, have we been together?

MTL: At least ten years, I'd say.

Me: Well, that does kind of make sense. Sunday is ten months. So that puts us at about a year per month, right?

MTL: Sounds about right.

Me: Boy, that could get confusing when people ask us about it. Just think of what it'll be like when we're in our forties!

MTL: "It's been, what, honey? A couple hundred years?"

Me: "At least a hundred and twenty."

MTL: "Yep. Loooooong time."

Me: "When we said 'forever,' we meant it."

MTL: "Yup. And the bitch just won't die!"

The fact that we then erupted into laughter and ended on a kiss says volumes about why we fit each other like a frickin' two-piece puzzle.

We're crazy like that.


  1. Well I'm glad you count your relationship in dog years, because it seems impossible you've only been together 10 months. I've been reading your blog for a few months, and I would have to agree that you've been together for years.

    Just catching up on my good reads! Merry Christmas!

  2. Okay, so I just clicked over to Diapers and Dragons for the first time. How have I missed it? Lord only knows. Nice styling, girl! But technology dunce over here couldn't figure out how to comment, so here I am, back over at my favorite: Just Step On It.

    The description of your date out and silly Wii games made me tear up. Grief comes in waves, so I hope that 2011 is giving you some sunny skies, but also that those sobbing fits are the needed release they should be. Glad you have a good shoulder to cry into! See you in February!! Glad you are who you are.
