Staring into each other's eyes over candlelit vegetarian Korean food

MP: I'm so lucky to have found you.
Nerddd: Are you kidding me? I'm lucky to have found you!
MP: No, no. With you by my side, it is I who has emerged victorious.
Nerddd: Well, I would've probably hurled myself out of a window if I hadn't found you.
MP: I'm luckier. Trust me.
Nerddd: Seriously...out-of-the-window. I'm the lucky one.
MP: Okay, okay. Let's just say that we're both equally lucky to have found one another.
Nerddd: Agreed.
MP: (groaning) I can't believe we've become that couple.

Staring into each other's eyes over Middle Eastern food

MP: I missed you so much since the last time I saw you.
Nerddd: I missed you more!
MP: That's just unlikely, my dear!
Nerddd: I missed you so much more--
MP: No, I missed you more.
Nerddd: I thought about you all day yesterday MP.
MP: I think about you all day, everday. Welcome to my world.
Nerddd: I suspect that anyone who'd have the (mis)fortune of witnessing this exchange would need a barf bag and several insulin shots...that being said, I missed you more.

*Please note that while this isn't an exact transcription of the more sentimental conversations that MP and I have, it certainly captures their essence and makes me sigh excessively.


justifiably_vertical said... could you have crossed to the excessively sappy side? Where's the bitter "I'll die alone" sentiment I came to know and love?

the sappier, the better.

It's so delish when a man is sweetly, romantically, crazy about you. He sounds adorable.

I'd love to comment on the notion of the googly-eyed nerddd going from "cab light off" to 18 Molar Sweetening Solution (sorry, had to throw in some organic chemistry there. And this chemistry she is experiencing is pretty organic...).

Now you two run along and have a nice time.

(we do need a judge's clarification *vegetarian* korean?? Wazzat? Turbo-tofu???)

Sasha said...

oh you know you love it. if a woman was oogling over you like that...your little heart would be all aflutter.


justifiably_vertical said...

Perhaps, but I would still be very, very ashamed of myself.

SabilaK said...

The sappy side isn't so bad JV. Before long, you'll have all those college gals in a twitter and you'll know exactly what I mean.

dr_koopon said...

j_vert is the only person I have ever met who would consider being ashamed of himself even while he enjoyed being oogled a good thing.

That aside... pass me the insulin, would you please?

Sasha said...

no you won't be ashamed of yourself. you lie! LIES! you'd love it...loooooooove it.

I had to smack my husband upside the head after reading this since our convos of this super uber sappy nature has long since died a rather ugly death (Um...well not really but still...any reason to inflict bodily harm is a good one).

That being said, I think I may have gotten a cavity just from reading this post.


Sasha said...

haha. this post has already been known to cause diabetes. didn't someone ask for an insulin shot earlier?


*cheeky grin*


makes all of us want to have conversations like this with the person who finds us irresistible. Except you Rubes, you've been married *wayyyyyyy* too long.


I swear by the time I walked out of the spare room and turned off the bathroom light, your hubby was already snoring.
