Profile of a Marriage

Scene: Bedroom, snuggling while watching the latest Jennifer Aniston movie fighting over who should get up to turn off the light.

Me: [Noticing something on his ear] What is that?  Did you somehow get...cat hair in your ear? [Sticking finger in his ear.]

Him: Stop, wife. [Swatting my hand away.]

Me: [Stifled laughter.] It's fuzzy! You have ear hair!

Him: Yeah. Thanks. And I'm sure it'll get long and dark soon enough. Great.

Me: And I'll make fun of you for looking like an old man.

Him: [Without missing a beat.] And I'll make fun of your mustache.

Me: [Running finger over upper lip dejectedly.]

Him: [Large grin.]

Me: Fine. I'll turn off the damn light.

(Go find me at MamaPop and Moxie today. I have things to day about Anthony Weiner's weiner, Lily Allen's wedding & pregnancy, and the latest blogging hoax scandal.)

Happy damn Monday.
