Wordful Wednesday: My Funny Valentine

By |
Matt and his friend, pneumonia. Circa 2006

Today, my hubby is sick. He makes a big deal out of being sick. He drags pillows and blankets from our bed, strews them onto the living room floor, the couch, and then just lays down in our recliner. He asks for “chicken noodie” (chicken noodle soup), and yes, starts talking like a baby when he’s sick. He insists that I take his temperature every ten minutes, wants 7up, tries to watch The Lord of the Rings and then falls asleep. He’s pretty much pathetic.

So today, since I get a kick out him in his misery, I thought I’d share some early photos of him/us.

“If I could ask God one thing, it would be to stop the moon. Stop the moon and make this night and your beauty last forever.”—A Knight’s Tale
Be jealous, ladies. Be jealous.

Matt lost a bet.
And I loved me some Elvis.
“By all means, marry. If you get a good wife, you’ll become happy; 
if you get a bad one, you’ll become a philosopher.”–Socrates
My husband: the philosopher
Thanks a lot, Socrates. Now I just feel bad about myself. Get well, babe! I’ll try to be a better wife, and you try to stop philosophizing, k?

    AHAHAHA! I love it! What a fun walk down memory lane – and in spite of men turning into babies when they’re sick, he’s a keeper! ???? Hope he feels better soon! ????

    OK, is it bad that I had to think about what your philosopher husband was trying to tell us? That is seriously funny.
