Anyway, June is the “wedding month,” so it got me to thinking a bit about weddings. Of course, it could be (just a little bit) because Maggi (our younger daughter, whom some readers may remember from Fiddler on the Roof, and other shows she was in at Western) sent us the picture below a while back:
In any event, with a date pretty well established, the next step is dealing with all of the “Save the date” fol-de-rol. That will be getting underway quite soon, and I hope will not lead to a situation like that pictured below for any invitees.
That means, at least for the male half of a traditional, heterosexual couple (this may apply to other forms, but my experience with them is pretty limited) being aware of the fact that “Every time you talk to your partner, your mind should remember that… ‘This conversation will be recorded for training and quality purposes’.” I have found that to be useful advice, although I have never really had to worry about it (probably thanks to Bonnie’s patience with me). Still, I have tried to be a good husband, even if I haven’t always succeeded completely.
After all, I never did something like what is shown below; because what the caption says….
That doesn’t mean that Bonnie and I have never had a “disagreement.” In fact, our “girls” have been known to pick on us because they say that we squabble with each other too much. I think it’s just because we’ve been like the “established” couple in “Pickles” for a good while. I think we even agree with the “Pickles” notion of what’s important in a marriage.
