Emails From a Marriage

My husband sent me this email...

One day I envision getting a bigger flat-screen TV for our living room.

One day I envision a world where my children don't argue and my 3-year-old doesn't stay up until 10 p.m. and dishes are magically washed and everyone wears clothes without making them dirty so they can just put them right back in their dressers.

And he responded...

Perfect.
One day I envision that on our giant new television, you will stop recording shows on non-HD channels.

And I wrote...

Yeah maybe. And I envision you sitting down with me to watch Sweet Home Alabama so we can appreciate the magical chemistry of Josh Lucas and Reese Witherspoon and recite our favorite lines. Here I'll go first. "What do you want to marry me for anyhow?" "So I can kiss you anytime I want." Your turn.

I envision a world where I know what the hell you are talking about.

And I wrote...

Or here's another one... "Look at you, you have a baby... In a bar." Your turn.

And he wrote...

I envision a world in which you stop doing this.

And I wrote...

"I can't control her, any more than I can control the weather." Your turn again.

And he wrote...

Seriously, if you stop, I won't bring up that HD thing again.

And I wrote...

You're not that good at this game. I envision a world where I try to appreciate HD more if you appreciate the artistic talents of Josh Lucas more.

And he wrote...

That's not going to happen. I envision a world in which we watch the next Super Bowl on our new giant TV.

And I wrote...

I envision us watching the next Super Bowl on our current TV as long as Coach Taylor is coaching and Tim Riggins is playing.

And he wrote...

They aren't coaching or playing. Mostly because those people don't actually exist. They are characters on Friday Night Lights. I've explained this before.

And I wrote...

This is why I have trouble getting into football. Do you wish Party of Five was still on the air?

He wrote...

No, I don't.

I wrote...

What about Wings? That was a great show. Do you miss Wings?

_____________________________________

He wrote...

No, I don't.

I gotta go. I'll talk to you later. Love you.

_____________________________________

I wrote...

Love you too. But spend some time thinking about Wings.

He wrote...

Absolutely. Spend some time thinking about that new TV.

I wrote...

Absolutely.
