since we said I do
A few months back I told hubs
Me: "Hey guess what?"
Hubs: "Do I even want to know?"
Me: "Guess what anniversary is coming up?"
Hubs: "One where you have probably already gotten your present 50 times over"
Me: "hardy har har....no silly...It's our 7 yr Itch"
Hubs: (perks right up) "Oh really? And you KNOW exactly what that means huh?"
Me: "Yep, it means we are all itchy and need back scratches"
Hubs: "Well great....Since you KNOW exactly what IT means I guess you can't get ANGRY when I 'Scratch' the Itch. I suggest you go look it up first before you start telling people you are itchy in your marriage"
Me: (looking puzzled. having no idea what he is talking about) "What are you talking about? 1 yr is paper 2 yr is cotton etc....I think 7 means we get itchy....silly but I didn't make it up"
so off I go to the computer.
and Google "what does 7 year itch mean" (I love google)
and up pops wiki
The seven-year itch is a psychological term that suggests that happiness in a relationship declines after around year seven of a marriage. The phrase originated in 1845, meaning all that is annoying. It was conceived as more of a long duration of an unpleasant occurrence, usually indicated towards an irritating and contagious skin complaint rather than an event marked at seven years
ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
How humiliating is that?
Of course Hubs is dying laughing at me. Laughing more over the fact that I was going to post on our fb wall about how it's our 7 year itch.
So I can assure you ...THERE WILL BE NO ITCHING GOING ON HERE....or death will occur.....Jeepers
But back to it being 7 years...
7 years ago I married my best friend.
The man that can twirl me around the dance floor to our favorite song (after I have on a motion sickness patch)
The man that will sit on the couch with me each night (even during Monday Night football) and watch Hallmark Movies with me.
The man that will put up with all my crazy crazy and still totally adore and kiss me at the end of the night.
