It's Not the Same Without Him

There are a few disadvantages to being away from your spouse for extended periods of time. For example, there's no one there to talk to about the little inane things you think about during the day ("Marsupials scare me . . ."). There's no one to have dinner with. And there's no one to tell you if you have food in your teeth afterwards. Or before, as the case may be.

But the worst thing for me -- other than that I get used to having the whole bed to myself, which means the DNB will have to deal with some serious sprawl until I reacclimatize -- is that there's no one around to annoy.

I think Gary Chapman missed this crucial sixth love language. Brought up in a family of kidders, it's how I show my affection. Now although the DNB is the younger brother and was more often than not the annoyer, he is surprisingly easily irritated by my antics.

Which is just one reason I'm so excited to go north on July 7.
