Marriage 501, Lecture 689: You say tomato, I say, "Didn't you even notice?"
I promise I am not trying to be gross. My apologies to anyone who is grossed out. But maybe you'll understand better after you read this.
Take a look at this photo. What do you see?
I see flowers.
I saw flowers when I took it. Flowers were the only thing I saw.
But after I uploaded the photo to facebook - after I giddily uploaded the photo to facebook, so happy that maybe spring was on the way, even though there are still patches of snow in our yard, SH came downstairs.
"Why did you put a photo of dog poop on facebook?" he asked.
I'd had no idea.
But there you go - a metaphor (an allegory?) for the two of us.
I see the flowers in life.
SH sees the poop.
