Sigh. I was at the tire store the other day, because I needed new tires, and the sales clerk said something about cars that I did not understand. And I said, "Well, that's why I got married. So I wouldn't have to understand these things." Now I realize that is really anti-feminist and a little dumb, because I still need to know about my car, because Jeff is not with me every second of every day, but haha, I do feel that there are many good reasons for why I got married. And even though I will make an effort to learn more about my car, Jeff knowing things about cars is definitely a good reason. :)
Another reason came up last night. Jeff likes to read my blog and your comments every now and again. Last night he read my post about ducks and geese. Before he read it though, he saw the title and said, "Do you know that's not how the song goes?" I responded, "Yes, I know. That's why I wrote the next sentence in my post." He read it, and I read it. And then I thought about it, and then I felt really dumb.
Yes, ducks and geese are feathered. But they're also web-footed. Sigh. The song is actually even about ducks. At least the first verse is. For whatever reason, when I was typing that post I thought the song was about frogs, so I had to change it to make it work for birds.
So, another good reason to get married is to have someone point out to you when you're being dumb. Because sometimes it is hard to see on your own. And I mean this for more things than just forgetting that ducks and geese have webbed feet. But like when I'm freaking out, and I need Jeff to point out that there is nothing to freak out about. Husbands come in handy.
Do you have any "reasons" why you got married, or why your husband/wife is particularly handy? Or if you're not married, do you have any that will be a reason? Or that you hope will be?
