In which i totally kicked his ass

Ok people, I wrote this post last week so bear with me.  Also, I totally screwed up and published 3 posts on April 6th therefore if you get this by email or RSS feed, you’ve already seen it.  Whatever.  Hope you enjoy it anyways!


Hey people, I feel like I haven’t written a post in ages, possibly because I haven’t written a post in ages.  It’s not like I haven’t been writing, I have been.  It’s just that I decided to write a book, which is a far more time consuming thing than I thought it would be.


I’ve written 105 pages and 80000 words thus far and I have a long way to go.  This is all well and good but it hasn’t left me with much time.  I’ve already gotten behind on paperwork, insurance, etc.  There’s no food in the house and the natives are restless.


Today is also my 25th year anniversary.  To understand the conversation I’m going to show you have to understand how I’m “covered.”  Let me explain.


When Kevin and I first started dating and were getting serious, we got in some fight or something.  Don’t ask. I have no idea.  At the time I guess I was wrong so I apologized.  While I was at it, I decided to pre-apologize for everything that could ever be my fault during the duration of our relationship.  I apologized for being mean, sarcastic, and moody.  For being wrong and forgetting stuff.  I basically apologized for anything that I would ever have to apologize for.


“For anything I am ever likely to do wrong, I’d like to apologize: I’m covered!”  That was the basic premise.  25 years later whenever something goes wrong I shrug my shoulders and say “I’m covered.”


We were actually discussing this last night and Kevin said, “you turned to me like a big pronouncement was about to be made and said I’m sorry and it was obvious you didn’t mean it and then proceeded to explain your entire concept.  I thought you were kidding at the time and the first time you said ‘I’m covered’ all I could think was ‘Are you kidding me?”


So, back to this morning.  Kevin was in the shower and he wished me a “Happy Anniversary.”


Kevin:             Happy Anniversary Lynn

Me:                  you too

Kevin:             I said it first so I’m the winner

Me:                  technically I wrote you a post so I thought of it first

Kevin:             but I said it first today so I’m the winner

Me:                  well, mine posted at 12:00 AM so I was first

Kevin:             that’s stupid. Then people could say happy anniversary for next year today and be the winner

Me:                  yeah, that’s basically like being “covered”

Kevin:             I HATE how you’re covered

Me:                  you’re just jealous that you didn’t think of it

Kevin:             Lynn, nobody thinks of things like that

Me:                  I can’t believe you actually agreed to it

Kevin:             I don’t think I AGREED per se; I think I was informed

Me:                  pretty clever huh?

Kevin:             I wouldn’t call it clever

Me:                  Why are there two towels next to the shower on my sink area?

Kevin:             when I grabbed the towel, I accidentally grabbed two

Me:                  ahhh, that explains it

Kevin:             explains what?

Me:                  I just figured that maybe you were going to get wetter than usual today

Kevin:             that’s not even possible

Me:                  especially considering that you have a “drying routine”

Kevin:             that weirded me out when you wrote about that.  I’d never thought about that before

Me:                  you?  How about that reader that now thinks of me whenever they dry off?

Kevin:             hahaha…that’s too funny

Me:                  yeah, so Happy Anniversary FOREVER

Kevin:             what?

Me:                  yeah, I totally kicked your ass

And I did.  Have a great day folks!

    I am absolutely stealing the “I’m Covered” as my own. I’m not even gonna tell my husband that I stole it from someone else. Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant.

    It actually sounds playing so safe. Lol. You’re both funny actually, you’re like a kid just playing around. But that’s okay, not so serious, enjoying but loving one another. You’re covered forever, but it doesn’t mean make mistakes forever right? lol

    Love the banter…congrats on twenty-five years and an obviously terrific relationship! Isn’t it great to have a man around to mess with/write about/make fun of? Dudes make for great material!

    Happy Anniversary. I took the approach of just blaming myself for everything, even things that are not my fault. So when my husband fucks up and I say, its my fault, then he feels bad and says “no it’s my fault”. Therefore I always win. And that’s what marriage is really about.

    The movie “Kick ass” is rated R, and it’s rating it about a 8 out of 10.
