Who am I?

I've heard quite a few people say that if you live with someone long enough,
you will start developing some of their personality traits.
I was always like noooo,
that's so silly.
But now, I am a believer.
I think I am turning into a woman version of my husband.
I am doing things I never thought I would do, laughing at things I never thought I would laugh at, and saying things I never thought I would say.
And I am writing about this in hopes that I am not alone.

Here is an example:
My family was having a graduation party for my cousin in our backyard on Saturday,
at one point, I quietly slipped away into our house,
to take care of some business.
I locked the front door behind me.
I thought I was all alone.
I took care of the business,
and after washing my hands,
I decided to ex-neigh the match and, instead, get the new Febreeze out from under the kitchen sink.
I throw open the bathroom door,
to find my husband standing on the other side.
 Out of fear and embarrassment,
I just stood there...
and prayed that God would plug his nostrils.
Before I could say anything,
Tyler put his hand in the air and said
Babe! I'm proud of you! That would compete with one of mine! High five!
and you know what I did?
I gave him a high five.
During the past 10 months of living with Tyler,
I have caught myself expelling gasses, laughing at myself (and others) expelling gasses, and even saying the precious that's what she said line. 
And you know what is terrifying?
I secretly enjoyed that high five.

Please ladies,
tell me I'm not alone.

ha! what a great response :P I can't say I've had an encounter quite like that, but I definitely know what you mean about taking on each other's traits!

Jessica Jane said...

It is starting to happen to me too:)

Tere Shake said...

ha! that is amazing. i feel the same way, your not alone. i think that its also the comfortable factor coming into play. the more comfortable you are around your significant other the more you let loose!

Lauren said...

HAHAHA you are officially married. You are totally not alone on this one. A lot of my hubby's friends aren't married yet so they'll come over to hang out and they treat me like one of the guys. I've heard every fart joke under the sun and even came up with a few of my own "that's what she said" jokes. You know you're in trouble when you're husband asks you to come look at what he did in the toilet because he's so proud!

haha totally not alone!
and you know the best thing about becoming the woman version of your husband? he becomes the male version of his wife.
in the littlest of ways, in the greatest of ways, in the funniest of ways...
what i love about the role reversal is that it builds a greater connection to the one that you love. the quirks and things that used to separate you and define you as individuals are the those that start to connect you and define you as one entity.
aint love grand?
damn straight it is!
*ps - the high five is GOLD!*

You are so not alone there!! Even my almost two year old son talks about poo-poo!

The Adventurer said...

Pahahahaha, I love this. I also love that this is not the first time you have written about expelling gasses. That, my friend, is so great. Only because its hilarious and not because I have a thing for gasses.
