Love notes

Going through my text history looking for that one about Elwin and the bed, I came across a few other gems from over the last year. It's a love story for the ages.

Sometimes I have trouble getting ahold of Jason during his very busy workday. This is typically when there's something urgent that I need him to do. Jason is generally not very good at remembering to do home-related things at work, urgent though they may be. Jason also tends to be pretty unresponsive to my pleas when he is very busy at work. So I have to get tough if I want results.

And sometimes, Jason is not very good at remembering to do home-related things at home. Things like putting the new loo roll on the actual roll, instead of resting it on top of the holder. I finally decided to take a stand and went on total loo roll replacement strike.

When there was no change in the loo roll status nearly 24 hours later, I felt it was time for another gentle reminder.

Then there are the times I am the one who is not entirely abiding by house rules. This particular evening, Jason had been so kind as to vacate the premises for a few hours while I hosted my sisters-in-law for a chick flick evening. Things got a little out of hand.

And then, of course, there are the random and non-sensical conversations that happen while Jason is traveling for work and finds himself sitting in a bar or restaurant alone with no one but me to talk to.

And then we're back to Jason screwing up. He routinely raids my wallet for cash. I do not care for this.

He might be a butthead, but he's my butthead. And I wouldn't trade him for anything.
