This Saturday, it’ll be 6 years since we started dating. In honor of that, I wanted to give you some random conversations we have had over the years.
Any time we’re at a Mexican restaurant:
Ben: What is pico de gallo and do I like it?
Me: Tomatoes, like salsa but not spicy.
Ben: Do I like it?
Me: Did you try that spankanovia? It was really good.
Ben: Um…do you mean spanakopita?
Me: Isn’t that what I said? Spankanovia.
Listening to some Science program on NPR on a Thursday night:
Ben: Ahh, I love Science Friday.
Me: It’s Thursday.
Ben: Dammit NPR!
At Target looking at a knickknack:
Me: Ben, I want this.
Ben: What does it do?
Me: It looks pretty.
Ben: That’s not enough.
Hearing Gangnam Style for the first time:
Me: Ben did you hear this crazy new song?
Ben: Um…K-pop was not on my agenda for the evening.
Me: Plans change.
Ben: I want to go to the la Sagrada Família cathedral.
Me: You want to give money to the Catholic church?
Ben: I guess art and history win out on this one.
Trying to find our hotel at 2AM in the middle of nowhere in upstate New York:
Me: GPS says turn left here.
Ben: I don’t see a hotel.
Me: It looks like there is something up ahead.
Ben: What the hell, is that a cabbage patch?
Me: Oh my God, where is the hotel?
Sitting around one night:
Ben: I guess we’re just D.I.N.K.s (dual income, no kids) right now.
Me: No we’re D.I.F.A.s
Ben: What’s that?
Me: Dual income, four animals.
While doing some housework:
Me yelling from inside the house: Ben! Beeeeen! The dog is on the roof. Go catch her in case she jumps.
Ben yelling from outside: How am I’m going to catch her? How did she get on the roof?
Me: I don’t know, the window was open! Just stand there in case she jumps.
Bored one day:
Me: Can I shave all your hair off?
