When you are married with four kids running around you have to take what you can when it comes to stolen moments and alone time. BDC and I often take off to the grocery store together and leave Kenna in charge of the boys. It's not romantic, but hey, there is plenty of time alone in the car before running into the crazies at the store.
Earlier this week hubs and I ventured out to pick up a few things. Why is it that every time I say I just need a few things I end up spending $200? I digress...
Anyshop, we have a special relationship. We banter back and forth like two little kids. We were having a tit for tat insult trading session over some nice apples and oranges whilst feeling up some nice pears. I can't remember the particular trade of witicisms because of what happened next.
Hubs said something particularly funny and I was giggling. Out of nowhere this lady comes up and puts her hand on my arm. Screech! *ding ding ding* My personal space has just been invaded. She smiles and says, "You two are so cute together. I love the way you look at each other."
Hubs looks at me and then her and half smiles while spitting out an "Um...thanks?"
Crazy Touchy Feely Lady: "You're newly weds huh? How long have you been married?"
Me and hubs bust out laughing.
Me: "We have been married for 8 and together for several more than that."
Crazy Touchy Feely Lady: "What's your secret? You two still look at each other like it's new."
Hubs deadpan: "Hookers."
We all laughed. I told her we liked each other and that we always make each other laugh. She walked on and finally moved her hand off my arm.
Hubs was like "how do you know her?"
Me: "I don't."
Hubs: "Guess I should've held off on the hooker comment huh?"
Me: "Naw...it was funny."
Hubs: "Well...it was that or tell her we were brother and sister."
