My wife wrote a lovely post not long ago today. It was about marriage not being much like TV, but I wonder if she meant not like she expected it - it’s not how I expected, either. That’s a good thing, though. She’s in every way perfect for me, and this makes me know I made the right choice.
When I lay down in bed, I rather wonder how she decided I was the right choice. I wonder how she still thinks it being around me every day. I am very much me and I don’t have many perks. I don’t know how to be massively romantic and I am often very much the opposite. I never say the right thing and can be a bastard.
That amazing woman is still with me, though. I have to assume she just gets me, and I hope I’m right. She is a sensitive, kind person (I want to be half what she is) and it seems like somewhere in there she understands what I have somewhere in here, if that makes sense.
No one would argue with me she’s an utter bombshell, either.
We tried this drive-in restaurant today, and it had the freshest food. Eddie’s Drive-In West in Coloma, MI. I hesitate to proclaim a burger joint amazing (sometimes seems one might not be taken seriously), but we both agreed - wow. Fairly inexpensive and we both ate well. Fairly certain ingredients were fresh and in-season. Onion rings and fried cheese were perfect sides, Ed’s secret sauce made my burger delicious. No ketchup necessary, I’d buy that sauce for my own burgers.
Ashleigh had chicken nuggets that were pretty clearly not out of a bag, I had a bite and they had actual taste to them. Her fries needed salt, but there is a Cajun option for them so that might be where to go as far as their fries.
I’ll be carting her stunning ass over there again soon, I hope.
Lovely night, all in all. Sat down to watch some television snugged up with each other. We are simple people, we like pretty simple things. This was just right; give me more of the same.
