Yesterday was our anniversary
I have been married longer than I was single,
Anyway people seem impressed and ask us how we do it
So here you go dear internet just for you .
The secret to a long marriage.
Sometimes, two people ,after living together a long time, dont like each other ALL the TIME.
They annoy each other.
I know they love each other, dedicate their lives to one another, blah blah blah
Sometimes, they get an urge to slam a fork in the other ones head for breathing through his Stupid nose so loud.
Wait for it here is the wisdom......
You continue to be polite.
Pretend its an annoying coworker you have to put up with to keep your job.
Pretend it is an annoying family member during the holidays.
Pretend it is a random stranger who is in line behind you and making that awful noise
I promise, the urge will pass and you will like each other again.
He will do something sweet and you will forget all about that urge to scream
For the love of all that is good in the world will you just shut up! Shut up! Shut up!
He will run and get you a Starbucks if you are working or surprise you by saying he likes your laugh.
It will be something small and insignificant just like the nose breathing and you will like him again.
And there you have it.
PS I was quite shocked when after reading this to him and laughing, cackling evil like out loud he agreed with me. Surely he couldn't feel the same way about ME at times?
