Well, you have to be if you married me... or a glutton for punishment. 😀
Today marks nine years of marriage for Da Wife and I and any sane person would seriously have to contemplate whether Da Wife is all there upstairs. I mean seriously, I snore (loudly), I drink (heavily during social events), I'm not home 'enough' during baseball season (was coaching before we even met so it came with da package), I'm a weekend warrior (when I can until it hurts), I'm a human garbage disposal (da leftovahs of Da Baby, Da Keiki and Da Wife go unwasted) and my body is barely in shape (round is DEFINITELY a shape).
It's funny dat wen anniversaries come around, all da mushy sentiments and repeating da cliche of 'right' things come out of your mouth or written on 'special' cards - Wassup Wit Dat! - and of course, posted on Facebook but you know das not how I [WWD!] roll. Many marriages have ended with wat we've been/gone/going through and we're no different than any oddah marriage but probably just more tolerant of each oddah. We've been through blow out fights screaming at da top of our lungs (my Korean lungs mo' big), we've argued ovah stupid manini kine stuff (usually her fault... ok, ok, sometimes mine - lol), we roll our eyes by some of our actions (I get da Korean stink-eye), brought up da "D-word" (50/50) - we're normal.
But marriage is a constant evolving test with some failing but many passing (surviving). Hea's my tribute to dat:
Anoddah year has passed and I constantly wondah why
You one pupule wife to stay instead of saying goodbye
We fight on occasion but nevah throw blows
There's always a way, wen we take it slow
You get irra's and I get irra's too
We stick around cause it's da right thing to do
Marriage is rough but we not like da oddahs
Maybe cause we old, maybe we just suckahs
Mean, stubborn and selfish, we both tolerate and grow
But da love between us only you and I know
Until dat withers or slowly fades
We past all da mushy stuff, you stuck with me Babe
Happy 9th Anniversary!
