What I Learned

Remember in college when you went to class and the professor taught and you engaged yourself in the crossword puzzle or halfheartedly listened while doodling sketches of new football uniforms you thought Nike should design for your school? What, you guys didn’t do that? Really, I’m the ONLY one?

So anyway, in college you had literally hundreds of opportunities to learn, to let yourself be taught and molded into what you chose to be molded into, which for most of us was…really…anything we could imagine.

Marriage is much the same in that each day holds new lessons for both of us to learn more about each other, ourselves, the Lord, the world, our families…everything. So to you Jen, here are 3 things I think I learned yesterday:

I learned that it’s much more fun, if not irresponsible, to come home to a messy home full of dishes and clothes and jump straight in bed with you to (kind of) co-write today’s post.

We had dinner at Chuy’s with 2 new couple friends and I learned that dinner conversation with new married couple friends is much more exciting and romantic than what I talk about with my boy friends (that’s boy [space] friends).

After finishing season 2 of Mad Men I learned that I like living in 2010 with you because if we lived in 1960 you couldn’t get mad at me for saying mean things to you or making fun of your multi-colored house shoes. Women back then…such pushovers. Thanks for raising that strong feminine right hand of yours.

What do you talk about with your boy [space] friends?

I'm an aspiring freelance writer and blogger (which doesn't make a ton of sense when you think about it). I started a blog called Our Marriage Project and one about OSU called Pistols Firing. I love both of them, and I love my wife. And I love Kevin Durant, Explosions in the Sky, Tim Riggins, Blue Moon ale, Twitter, and the state of Georgia.

  1. boy [space] friends.. haha. made me giggle quite a lot.

    I'm glad i don't live in the 1960's so its not a given that my husband cheats on my and sleeps around. I was a little addicted to Mad Men, but after every episode when Don was a jerk, and not loving his wife i would get real angry with him. One time i cried. haha. i'm so lame. mad men is great. can't wait for season 4 on dvd..

  2. the death of the BCS, OSU's BCS hopes, why OU "fans" are completely annoying, how amazing KD is, why Friday Night Lights is quite possibly the best show of all time…you know, baller stuff

  3. Should we just be called guy friends? Save you some trouble? I love talking osu sports more than I enjoy watching them play. I used to lay on oss's bed when I had a pile of clothes on mine, so I get that. ICGB
