Hasn’t Quite Nailed Analogies

| CO, USA | Romantic | October 22, 2012

(I work at home as tech support. The computer I work from is in the same room as my boyfriend’s computer. He is sitting at his computer, playing a game. There have been no tech support calls for over an hour.)

Me: “Okay, so I’m now on a two hour lunch.”

Boyfriend: “Congrats.”

Me: “I guess the queue is a door nail.”

Boyfriend: “A what?”

Me: “A door nail. As in, ‘dead as a’?”

Boyfriend: “A what?”

(I knock on my wooden desk to appease the Idle gods.)

Boyfriend: *without looking from his screen* “You should probably get that. Someone’s at the door.”

Don’t Call Me Baby

| USA | Romantic | October 22, 2012

(When people ask how my husband and I met, it often leads to funny conversations.)

Friend: “How did you two first meet?”

Husband: “She was naked in the bath.”

Friend: “Uh, okay, I didn’t need to know that specific.”

Me: “And, I don’t even remember it.”

Husband: “Neither do I. Our parents told us.”

Friend: *wide-eyed* “What? You guys drunk or something?”

Husband: “I also tried to get in with her, but her mom kicked me out.”

Friend: “Excuse me?! Is this a joke?”

Husband: “Nope.”

Friend: *silent, tense pause*

Me: “I was six months old, and he was one.”

Doesn’t Need A Big Fat Awesome Apology

| Southaven, MS, USA | Romantic | October 22, 2012

(I’m a very short, larger woman while my boyfriend is tall and lean. It’s our anniversary, and every year we reenact our first date, where we ride fair rides until nauseated. Most of the time I know which rides can accommodate me, so I don’t waste time trying to squeeze in smaller rides or hop on the bigger

Me: “Okay, so what do you want to ride next? Ferris-wheel?”

Boyfriend: “Nah, not fast enough.” *points to a ride that I haven’t seen before* “Let’s try that.”

Me: *skeptical* “I don’t know. It looks like I might not be able to fit.”

Boyfriend: “Nonsense! It just goes in a circle and barely off the ground. I’m sure you can ride it.”

Me: “Alright…”

(Sure enough, when I try to get on the ride, the handle bar doesn’t quite fit. The ride operator is waiting for me to get off while other patrons are waiting to get on.)

Me: *trying to laugh back my embarrassment “I’m sorry. I’m sorry, I knew it wouldn’t work.” *struggling to get off* “I’m sorry!”

Boyfriend: *grabs my hand as he helps me get down* “Do not be sorry! This ride just can’t handle your awesomeness!”

(I dubbed him a keeper. He’s my fiancé now!)
