Reason #378 Why I Love My Husband

He makes me smile. . . 

While at work yesterday I received the following text from Chad, who was also at work:

12:50 p.m.  “Sigh. . . my right earring hole is closed I think.”

Yes, my husband got his ear pierced days after we got married.  We were on our honeymoon and I think it was his way of rebelling. . . you know since we were adults and all.  Anyway, I’m quite certain he has not actually worn any earrings since our first year of marriage. . . 9 years ago.

Being the sensitive person I am, I thought it best to respond in a compassionate manner.

12:51 p.m.  I’m really sorry to hear that, Chad. 

(Okay, I might have been slightly sarcastic in my response.)

Silence. . . and then 24 minutes later. . . another text:

1:15 p.m.  Yippie!  It’s open! 
I could just seeing him sitting in the office digging at his ear. . . so not to lose one of his first acts of independence.

He makes me smile.

I really love that guy.  Really, really love him.
