Marriage 501, Lecture 521: Today I am a man
SH: I can't give her any more money.
Me: Bless her heart, she is not a good money manager.
SH: Well - she couldn't have anticipated this.
Me: No, but you can never anticipate bad things. Which is why you plan for bad things and then are relieved when they don't happen. But you still have a plan. Just in case.
SH: You have a plan for if I die!
Me: Of course I do.
SH: No, I mean you have a detailed plan!
Me: Yep. One of the first things to happen is I ditch all your crap in the basement, including the Beavis and Butthead masks.
SH: It might be time for those to go.
SH: It might be time for me to throw those away.
I am struck silent by my husband's maturity. I had not expected this. For years, he has maintained that he needed to keep those masks. But now, he is a man and he is putting away childish things. I am so proud. My heart warms. He has grown so much since we got married. I love this man.
SH: Yeah, the rubber is probably rotten anyway.
