Hubs surprised me the other day with a delivery of a giant Japanese Peace Lily with an accompanying card that read “Hot Fuzz.” It was perfect.
It reminded me of a conversation we had a few months back, where he listed some of the less traditional reasons he loves me so much.
– I always know where things are, even if they are his things, which I have neither seen nor interacted with in days (eg: belts, phone, keys).
– I always know what he means, so that he doesn’t even have to say “you know what I mean” anymore.
– I always restock the laundry detergent. Direct quote, “It has NEVER gone dry. It’s ALWAYS full. Do you do it at night or what? It’s like stealth restocking.”
– I’m (nearly) always willing to engage in playful bantering (my grandparents call this “recreational bickering”). This is partially because I enjoy it and partially because we both know that if we don’t do it for fun, real fighting will shortly ensue.
I bet everyone has some of these about anyone they love, the quirky things that aren’t deal-makers or -breakers but that build up good feelings from day to day (or year to year) doing, you know? I thought this list was adorable. Especially the one about the laundry detergent. I didn’t even realize I did that.
