Him : Listen, there’s an award function tonight and I’ll be getting a young entrepreneur thing, so we’ll have to go. Wear something nice.
Me : Okay.
Him : Also, please don’t get upset if I don’t say a lot of sugary stuff about you onstage. you know how bad i am with words, it would just sound forced and awkward if I try it ..onstage… you know?
Me *resisting urge to roll my eyes * : I do not require validation from your prissy co workers so, no. I will not get upset. i’m angry you even think that I will.
Him : okay
Me : okay.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~Later in the evening, husband wins award , finishes his speech and then just stares at me from the podium. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Him : Earlier in the day, i told my wife that i wouldn’t be saying anything about her because it would seem awkward….. she’s a writer… she’s really good with words and I’m not… but …standing here and just looking at her …all i can think is, “ None of this matters. She’s the only one who does.” So, yeah…. Thank you, sweetheart because you’re the most important thing in my life.
Me : ……………………
