When was the last time you were surprised?
It's been quite a while for me. Until Tuesday. Yes, Tuesday. And we all know what Tuesday is ... let's say it together:
So, we're at one of our favorite spots and we're just talking. Nothing earth shattering. Nothing too deep. Before I continue, let me say this: in our relationship my guy has always been the emotional one and I have always been the logical one. That's just how it is and we accept it.
During our conversation, somehow we got on the subject of death and he said that he wouldn't be able to function if something happened to me. I said in my most logical voice, "Well, figure it out because I'm gonna die. We're both gonna die. I'm not saying that I wouldn't be affected if something happened to you but I know it's going to happen." Pause. "Have you ever seen that commercial about learning how to do things without cigarettes? I'd have to relearn how to make it through each day without you." Pause. "Tuesdays would be rough ... I don't know ..."
Then it happened.
I broke down in tears and couldn't get control of myself.
When I finally pulled myself together he said, "Now you know how I feel all the time. Now you see why I keep talking about getting married."
Then I said, "Fine, let's get married tomorrow."
While we did not get married the next day, I am considering it more seriously. Not because he's gonna die, but because I love him and I should marry him.
