Opposite View



Conversation earlier between my sister J (the newlywed) and I:

Me: So I'm sitting there watching CNN interview Harriet Miers freaking hairdresser when D comes over and switches the channel to catch the football highlights. Can you believe that? He didn't even ask...

J: Geez Mint, you have to learn give and take in a marriage.

Me: ::::: blank stare:::::

J: Wha?

Me: Are you giving me relationship advice?

J: I...uh..well yeah. I guess I am.

Me: (I'm in a really bitchy mood today). Sweetie, I have gum in my purse older than your marriage. I think I know a wee bit more about give-and-take than you do.

J: (rolls her eyes)

Lately I'm reminded of how opposite D and I are. I'm a night-owl, he's an early bird. I'm a news junkie, he's a sports fanatic. I love seafood while he thinks beef is a birthright. Some days we are the poster children for "opposites attract".

As Paula Abdul would sing:

It ain't fiction but a natural fact...
... that opposites attract.

That's the fun part, minty! Though I admit me and hubby too are the opposite ends. But I get my way mostly :)

LOL! What a great post! Well, sister dear surely is basking in the warmth of her newly-married-sun-shines-always
phase :) But,it is pretty good fun to be married to your opposite. You look at them and say to yourself-f***, that could've been me!!! Have a nice day my dear!
