Today is “Show and Tell” at Bacon’s blog “Piglove.” In this post we were suppose to talk about a silly gift or something ridiculous that happened to our pawents or us.
Mom says there has been many funny and ridiculous things that have happened to her over the years but the one scenario that sticks with her and she never forgets happened eons ago. We must set the scene first. Mom and dad are both very stubborn and strong willed peeps. I have to say way out there stubborn!! When they were going steady, they fought all the time. They would break up and then make up all the time. Somehow they managed to get engaged. I guess they quit fighting long enough that life looked good, Then dad would get the engagement ring in his face and they broke up. People thought they were odd! Heck, I would’ve too. Geesh! Anyway dad’s family were very unsure of mom and mom’s family thought dad was just what mom needed. Different family reactions, I see. There must have been something there to keep drawing them together. Finally dad asked mom to marry him and there was a long pause….must have been the way he said this most romantic of sentences, “C’mon, its time we put everyone out of their misery and got married.” They got married. Mom says she hears how other hubbies asked their wives to marry them and wishes she had a romantic memory like theirs. All I got to say is, it must work. Mom and dad have been married for almost 45 years.
