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.
tell me I'm not alone.
