"Wait you don't like puns? Boy, don't you realize you married the pun queen."
150. Wait, you don’t like puns? Boy, don’t you realize that you married the pun queen?
For the tenth time that day, the sound of Spencer’s phone alerting him of a text message could be heard echoing from his messenger bag.
Typically, Spencer would get excited when hearing the familiar ringtone while he was away on a case, seeing as it usually you wishing him a good day or informing him of how much you were missing him.
This time, however, he groaned loudly and reached across the desk a police officer had loaned him for the night. All day long you had been sending him horrifically unfunny puns, or at least to him that’s what they were. You, on the other hand, found them to be hilarious.
‘I ate too much middle eastern food today’
And just as Spencer thought he had finally received a normal text from you, his phone buzzed in his hand.
‘and now I falafel’
Once more, Spencer groaned and rubbed his forehead.
‘I’m trying to look over a case file and you’re being insufferable’
Five minutes had passed by before your name appeared on his phone again.
‘Well I was going to make a pun about philosophy, but now I guess I KANT’
Unlike all the others you had sent him, Spencer found this pun to be at least a little funny.
Instead of texting you back, Spencer pressed the call button next to your number.
“You were just determined to torture me today weren’t you?”
The laugh that Spencer heard from your side of the phone instantly made up for every single god awful joke you had sent him that day.
“Wait, you don’t like puns? Boy, don’t you realize that you married the pun queen?”
Relaxing back into his office chair, Spencer grinned, “I’m 99% sure that you were not the next heir to that title when I asked you to marry me.”
“Well, my love, I’ve officially taken over the throne.” Spencer could practically picture the smug look you had on your face.
“I refuse to accept it.”
“Oh come on!” your voice raised with laughter, “You had to have found at least one of them funny!”
With your hearty laughter ringing in his ear, Spencer realized just how much he missed you and wished he could hear it in person, “Alright, alright, maybe a few of them.”
