15 Ways in Which DT and I DifferPosted: October 10, 2013
The Pioneer Woman inspired this post when she jotted 15 things about her and Marlboro Man back in June.
I thought it would be EASY to rattle off 15 different things about DT and me….I mean, we’re different. On one hand, we’re a lot alike and we like a lot of the same things (I knew that too) – that makes us extra compatible. But as I spent more time with it, I found more and more ways we don’t completely align – there are the obvious things, like eating meat (him) or not (me). Getting clever and creative and digging a little deeper took some thoughtful consideration (or maybe just simple observation), but it was a fun exercise in exploring what makes each of us tick (and what irks us).
So here we go….
DT likes Coke Zero. I like Caffeine Free Diet Coke.
DT likes to watch television. I like to read.
DT would choose a Snickers bar for a sweet treat. I would choose ice cream.
DT is a night owl. I would rather go to bed early-ish (however, this does not make me a morning person).
An open drawer drives DT crazy. A messy floor drives me crazy.
DT likes Lifetime movies. I like romantic comedies.
DT likes vodka. I like rum.
DT can make decisions. I waffle.
DT likes coconut. I like cilantro.
DT likes Seinfeld. I like Friends.
DT likes to look for seashells on the beach. I like to do absolutely nothing but lie in the sun with a book on the beach.
DT has a photographic memory with movies and books – he remembers every little detail. I don’t retain movie or book intricacies well – once I’ve watched/read, I’m kind of onto the next thing.
A pizza with olives is absolutely unacceptable to DT, but he’ll let mushrooms pass and pick them off. A pizza with mushrooms is absolutely unacceptable to me, but I’ll let olives pass and pick them off.
DT likes iceberg lettuce. I like leafy and weedy greens.
DT enjoys long trips in the car. I get antsy and impossible after the first hour (I’m really trying to work on this).
A strange match made in heaven?
I suppose we are. 🙂
