Guest Post–Being married to a Skinny Chick
Good morning all, this is Mike. Jacqueline woke up at 5:30 this morning stumbled out to the living room to write a post. 5 minutes later she flopped back into bed. She was mumbling something about not having bananas and how she’s not gonna post anything today. You see, she has been working at the golf course all week, and she is grumpy.
I volunteered to write a post for her today, but in doing so, I get to make fun of her. Being married to Jacqueline is like being married to a hot 80 year old. She is so set in her ways, she is stubborn, she usually gets up early, has her pill, banana, toast & coffee (in that exact order) sits on the couch while reading/writing blog posts with Bam.
Jacqueline is the one on the left. Lol
I bought her a Smart TV for the bedroom yesterday while she was at work. I got this as an early Valentines day gift. She loves to watch tv before she goes to sleep. Now I say the word “watch”, but she never watches tv. She has it on, and she sits in bed with her phone on Instagram, Facebook, whatever. She watches the same movies over and over. I’m sure she has told you some of her favorites, but here is a short list from my perspective.
1. Christmas Vacation
2. Office Space
3. Farris Buellers day off
4. Step Brothers
5. A Christmas Story
I got her the Smart TV. I thought she would like to watch something on Netflix. I thought she would like something new. When am I going to realize that when it comes to Jacqueline, don’t think.
She mentioned yesterday in her post, that I ironed her pants for her, and she thought that was sexy. I read that after she went to work, so I started “thinking” on how I could buy her a Smart TV for the bedroom. I could got her a “dumb” tv. Jacqueline doesn’t care for anything new when it comes to technology, unless it has to do with running or blogging.
Jacqueline has routines. Period. Everything she does has ceremony of some kind attached to it. Just so you know, I find this charming and cute most of the time. Of course when I ask about these little ceremonies, she answers with a reason that I had not even considered.
I’m not sure if these are a sign of neurotic behavior, or she is so deliberate in all of her actions that she is smarter than I am. She considers things that I would never thought of. Again, why am i “thinking”.
She just got up and is getting ready right now, and I’m sure that there are about 100 different little ceremonies going on in the shower, makeup, hair… and if I ask about them, I will be met with a strange look and an explanation that is so contrary to my way of “thinking” that I have given up asking any more.
But you gotta love the finished product!
I just accept that either Jacqueline or myself is 100% nuts, and the other one is completely sane.
I kinda think she is the nutty one.
Do you have routines?
Are you a creature of habit?
Am I nuts?
