When HunnyBunny met Poet (or why the rules are the same but the game is different)

There are times when I look at my boyfriend and I think to myself...what am I doing here? Initially,I hadn't planned on sticking with him this long but hey, stuff happens.

Now I don't want you to go around thinking I don't love my man, cause I do; I love him alot.

It's just that I'm now realizing that different rules apply for guys and gals. The main rule for men is that men can let themselves go as much as they want (balding, beer belly, body odor) and still get a girlfriend/wife, yet a woman with a couple of extra pounds will have men running from her as though she's sprouted a second head. I definitely know that second thing to be true from first-hand experience, not a rumor.

As for me and HunnyBunny (my boyfriend), we met because I placed a personal ad and his response made me laugh. He wrote a poem full of bad grammar and misspelled words but I thought it was so cute. Oh god, did I just say that?(please disregard that last couple of sentences).

Anyway, several laughs and five years later, we're still going strong. Although I love him dearly, friends and family keep asking me the same question:why hasn't he proposed?

He says it's not on his list of goals right now.

Don't get it? Don't feel bad, neither do I.

Just where do stupid people come from?

If you'd like to know, just ask your local librarian. We'll be so glad to tell you. Now don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that all people are stupid, just that everyone can be stupid at times.

Like just a minute ago, I picked up the phone, said the little message we always have to say when answering the phone "Huntsville Public Library", Reference, This is "blank" and what do I hear? "Oh, I was just making sure my speed-dial was set."


I mean, I love the library and all, but not so much that I would put the Reference Department number on speed-dial. That's too much.

I sometimes have to wonder, where exactly do stupid people come from?

I can't imagine two loving caring people sitting around and deciding "hey, let's create a stupid child".

Imagine that conversation:
"What kind of children would you like to have?"
"The dumbest children possible."
"Oh, darling! I'm so glad we both agree on this!"

Needless to say, the world would be a lot better if there were less dumb people.

But, hey... that's just what I think.

Celebrating 12 years of marriage!
