Happy Couple

This post will be particularly amusing to anyone who knows me well and knows mister Bart.

I was in the cereal aisle of Walmart with my beloved friend Bart on Friday night. This older gentleman hurries up to us, and I think he will say something like, "You two look like you know what you are doing, can you help me out?" Nope...nope....instead he said, "You two look like such a happy couple, I just have to congratulate you!" He was very vigorous and insistent about this as Bart and I each held out our hands for him to shake in congratulations. I continued to bust up laughing for the next ten minutes and have been torturing Bart with his new nickname of "Schnookums" or "Sweetheart" or anything else mushy.

I so wish that I could have seen that. It would've have been beautiful.

Oh it was...it totally was....
And it gets more beautiful every time I re-tell the story in front of Bart and he can't say anything about it cause it did totally happen!

Well, In Rebecca's and my case, we were the last to notice that we made a good couple. You never know. Maybe this old man just catches on EXTREMELY early.

That is soooooo funny! I love that story. My vote is that things will probably work out for you two... 97.3%, according to the board in the kitchen. Ha ha!
