Day 14 of 465: Comedy or Tragedy? You Decide.
Working on the registry. It kind of goes like this...
Setting:Front room of our flat Characters:Matt & Meg Supporting Role: Myst
Matt: *obstinately watching X-Files - Season 5*
Meg: *points to towel set in lilac* What do you think of these, hon?
Matt: *nods in approval & turns attention back to TV*
Meg: *points to electric can opener* Wouldn't this be nice? And it's only 8 quid!
Matt: *hesitates before looking quickly and nodding again in approval*
Meg: *does fist pump* Hell yeah...check it!!
Matt: *glances momentarily away from TV to see Meg pointing at battery-operated spaghetti-twirling fork & smiles before shaking his head at the realization of what the rest of his life will be like and the nutter it will be living it with*
Meg: *realizes the same and grins* You're stuck with me!!
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
