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
Me: yeah, I totally kicked your ass
And I did. Have a great day folks!
