When Chilla and I started our relationship, our nuances and quirks were cute, endearing even. “Awww….he leaves crumbs in the butter! He is my butterbum!” “Awww….she leaves her shoes all over the floor! I love her feet!” We were (and still are!!!) so in love, that a sock on the chair here, and a wet towel on the bed there, really didn’t get on each others nerves. Much.
Then we got real.
A tad over a year later you start to realize that some things your significant other does is just plain odd. And sometimes annoying. And sometimes it makes you want to strangle them…ahem…
To be truthful, it’s a very short list of habits that Chilla does that really gets on my nerves. On the other hand, I think I do a ton of shit that makes him lose his mind. That is our relationship and it works for us. But, I started to notice something that he does that I find just down right WRONG.
Chilla doesn’t wet his toothbrush until he squeezes the toothpaste onto the brush! Who does that? This is clearly the wrong way to do things. Of course I know how to do it properly. I wet my toothbrush before toothpaste and after toothpaste. I need to get it nice and frothy. Maybe he has more spit than I do? I have no idea. We had a heated debate over this last night and just couldn’t come to an agreement.
So, I’m asking my very intelligent, very beautiful and very witty readers…who’s doing it right?
