I used to have a girlfriend who was not the sharpest tool in the shed. She kept losing the hand held unit on her cordless phone. One day she said, “They should invent a phone where the handset is connected to the phone”!
I discovered a lot about myself by dating her. I needed someone who I could actually talk to about current events intelligently. I’m not saying I’m some sort of genius. Far from it, but I pay attention to what is going on around the world.
That’s one of the things I love about my wife, Heather. I’m at home all day with two puppies. No real human interaction except when I go to my neighbor’s house. Then my friend Dennis and I solve the world’s problems. That is always refreshing.
The only thing that Heather and I don’t talk about this year is politics. We strongly disagree with some issues and candidates and want to stay married, so it’s better to just leave it alone. Neither of us will change our minds and even if we did, I really don’t think it would matter. We would just be angry with each other for nothing. That would be stupid.
Heather is very intelligent and informed. After being together for 20 years we still talk until midnight nearly every night. I love it. I need it. I learn so much about her every time we talk and that’s really good. Yesterday, she went to the Huntsman Cancer Foundation to deliver a $4,000 check that she coordinated with her employer. I couldn’t have been more proud of her.
Thank you, Heather for always making life interesting. I love you!
