What I have to say, I must say carefully. Let me start with a poem to my dear Gina.
I love hot stuff, you’re so sweet
Life with your is really neat
If you’ve had a bad day and need a treat
Give me some lotion and I’ll rub you feet
So Gina has had a tough weekend scholastically speaking. I don’t like to point out her faults, but I feel justified in light of the Beauty and the Geek premiere . Let me list 4 mishaps that caused us both to have a jolly good laugh. (And to realize that I have a shot at being the undisputed geek in this relationship)
1. On two occasions this weekend she told me to take a right, while pointing to the left with her left hand.
2. Sara asked Gina what P-L-A-C-E spelled and Gina said plaza. (might not seem like a big deal, but Gina won 87 spelling bees in the continental US and Europe)
3. Sara later asked Gina what word to use in an email and she told her to spell “brang: B-R-A-N-G” (commonly known as brought) which is not a word in the English
language (although there are some dialects that will accept this usage)
4. Gina was trying to do math in her head and she determined that 25/3 = 7.50 (For those of you who are wondering what the real answer is, it’s 8.33. )
Okay, so you are all thinking “Big deal”, and so am I. We just both had some great laughs because this all happened within a 10 hour period. As I write this I am feeling more guilty with each word. But I am doing it for the greater good. For all of you who look at Gina and think she is perfect and without flaw, realize that she has made 4 mistakes in our 6 year marriage and they all happened within 10 hours. My next post will detail the 5 things I forgot to do on Friday.
