She Talks With An Accent…
Posted by Brandi Wilson
Today I’m going public with one of our deepest, darkest marriage secrets… we repeatedly fight over directions. It’s happened for years. It’s not his fault. It’s not my fault. It’s just how we function when we’re traveling together. And by traveling together I mean sometimes we’re just going across town and we still might argue about how to get there.
Where’s this going? Well, yesterday was our 14 year anniversary and I finally realized that we were never going to be able to “fix” our directional differences. We’ve discussed these directional issues many times in the past and how he wants me to be his navigator… but it still results in some intense fellowship from time to time! 🙂
So, yesterday he arrived home from work to a wrapped gift and a note that said…
I love being your partner in life but I lovingly resign as your navigator. For our anniversary I’m giving you another woman. Say hello to Eleanor.
Yes, for our anniversary I gave my husband another woman. Eleanor went on our date last night and we both fell in love with her. Not only did we arrive at our destination without argument… we actually arrived with smiles.
And the best part of it all… Eleanor has an accent.
