There are things about your loved one that don’t bother you pre-wedding, but as soon as that ring is slipped onto your finger, they are going to drive. you. crazeee.
Trust me, it’s a universal phenomenon. If you’re married, you know. If you’re not I’m telling you now so that you can prepare yourself in advance for, this should you ever decide to tie the knot.
In our case? Hubby leaves a path of socks across the house as if he is going to need them later to retrace his steps or something. It’s mind boggling. Why wouldn’t he just put them in the laundry basket? Sometimes they make it as far as the bathroom, and almost to the laundry basket. Other times they are right next to the laundry basket, as if that extra foot would take too much effort. Most of the time they are nowhere near the laundry basket or the bathroom. Rather, they are stuffed down the back of the sofa, next to the TV, next to the bed, on the kitchen chair.. I could go on. But I’ll spare you. Just know that it, well, gets my goat.
Of course we have talked about it, discussed it, laughed about it and then argued about it. Does it make a difference? Not so far. I’m still dreaming of the day when I can walk from the bedroom to the kitchen without picking up a pair. He doesn’t really seem to remember me reminding him about this.
Sigh. Funny thing is, I, begrudgingly, admit that I might have one of these annoying habits too. At least that is what I am told. Apparently Mr. Wow spends his life picking up empty coffee mugs from around the house, so while I’m heading to the bathroom with socks, he’s heading to the kitchen with mugs. And it drives him crazy too. He’s pretty sure we talked about this a few times before but I only vaguely remember that conversation…
It’s one of marriage’s little mysteries.
