Retraction?!?

Anyone remember my post from yesterday?? I received such wonderful comments from my readers about what a touching story it was and what a loving couple we looked like. So you'd think that when my husband read my post he would be happy, right?? Well sisters, you'd be WRONG!

The ONE AND ONLY thing he took away from my post was this:

"Every time I was there, he was there. He was working downtown for the summer (it was the summer after his first year of law school) so he'd stop by after work everyday in his suit and bow tie. Oh...what a big dork I thought he was...but he was so much fun and truly hilarious...one could overlook his outward dorkiness."

That's it. Nothing else. A post I wrote to tell the story about how we met and fell in love is now leaving a bitter taste in my mouth.

As soon as I walked in the door last night he said he had a bone to pick with me. I was so nervous...I kept thinking...did I leave my straightener on?? Did I almost burn the house down? Was I supposed to do something and forgot about it?? While I was racking my brain to try and come up with why he was so upset, he said it was about my blog. He was mad I called him dorky! Oh dear...

Well he is demanding a retraction...and he's not going to get it...but I will explain.

Matt is not someone I would've ever pictured myself with. He's unlike any other person I have dated or even been attracted to. I think that's why I was so unsure about our relationship in the beginning...because it was so different than anything else I had ever experienced. Matt is extremely intelligent, very well spoken, funny, a UNIQUE dresser, ridiculously underweight, and he cannot deny it when I say that he is totally lacking in the muscle department. He wasn't what I was looking for at all in a boyfriend...but there was something about him that made me take a second (and maybe a third) look.

Matt turned out to be the one man I had been waiting for all my life. He had qualities in a significant other I never knew I wanted. He is extremely affectionate, sensitive, and caring. He's a great talker (a necessity with a long distance relationship) but also a great listener. He's everything to me and I can't imagine my life without him. Everything about him just fits...and I wouldn't want him any other way.

So who knew I would end up with a bow tie wearing, boat shoe strutting golfer who will only wear ties with little animals on them and won't exercise one minute to save his life? God knew...

Awwww! So cute. My Mr. Smith always has a bone to pick with me over the fact that I never wanted to meet him in the first place! Getting involved with someone who was not only in the MILITARY but PLAYED WITH EXPLOSIVES for a living did not even remotely appeal to me! But then...he emailed, and then he called, and then we went to dinner...and I was so happy that I had given in. I didn't tell him that I never wanted to meet him until MONTHS and MONTHS (maybe a year?) into our relationship...and it still drives him crazy!!!! :)

Oh my... my bf always has a bone to pick with me about my posts.. haha. But when you meet the one they arent always your typical guy you go for and thats usually why it works... just take him and kiss him and tell you love him and then turn the lights off :) :) xoxo

Ha! That was/is totally how my husband and I are. I never in a million years thought I would end up with someone like him, but, I couldn't be happier. Amazing how those things work out, huh?

Why is it that men don't know how to take a compliment! haha! I loved your story! Too cute! And, honestly, my hubs was a BIG dork back in the day. Now that I think of it...you've given me a blog post idea. ;)

Tell him to lighten up and pick better battles! That is such a non-issue.
Maybe he feels self-consious about his appearance and you, ahem....mentioned it again today.....Hmmmm...you better be fixing his favorite dinner tonight and have it ready by the time he gets home.....Does he have favorite slippers too???
LOTS of Blessings- LillySue

Matt said...

Well, LillySue, I was really just joshing her when I brought it up and demanded a retraction, but I suppose that today's post--heaped as it was with praise--was a fair enough compromise.

See? I'm not demanding. And for the record, I officially support the dinner and slipper proposal.
