Who knew that hunting for school supplies could lead one to an old girlfriend, a disagreement, and lots of "umms" and "errrs" from an embarrassed husband?
That's right. And right before our 18th anniversary, which is today, by the way. Happy Anniversary, dear.
One of Mr. Handsome's many jobs around the house is to get the kids' school supplies ready for the school year. And he does it very well, I might add.
What he doesn't do so well is make sure framed photos of his ex-girlfriend are not also in the box of said school supplies. Oh yes he did.
Oh, he tried to hide the evidence. Obviously, after 18 years of marriage, he still doesn't know how detail-oriented I am, how I see everything, hear everything. Know. Everything.
I grabbed the gold-framed photo of his ex (who, I might add, at first glance looked a lot like a younger version of Mr. Handsome), and asked for an explanation.
Folks, there was none. Surprised? Me neither.
I asked how he'd feel if I framed a few pictures of my past beloveds and had them hanging around the house, just because.
His answer? "Sure. And while you're at it, it would be great if you had their phone numbers and addresses as well."
The funny thing is, I'm not jealous. I don't really care. I just think it's hilarious, and a little strange. Interesting, even. Because I'm always curious as to why people do what they do. Always have been, always will be. So, why keep an ugly fake gold lame framed photo of your girlfriend from 25 years ago? What reason could there be? Especially if said girlfriend could be mistaken for a boy...
I'm thinking I just may pull out some of my old boyfriend photos (and there are so many of them) and throw them into a few beauty frames I have lying around. And then, when Mr. Handsome comes home tonight to take me out on the town for our 18th, he can say hi to the guys as well! The more the merrier, I always say.
Happy 18th, sweetie! Can't wait to turn old and gray with you! Wait a minute! We already did that...
