The Romance is Still Alive

Scene: As we're getting ready to go to bed, Mark is in the kitchen taking his meds and testing his blood sugar. I walk up behind him, place my hands on his upper arms and rest my head on his shoulder. We stand there quietly like that for a few seconds and....

Me: I love you.

Mark: I love you too.

A few more seconds pass and...

Me: I still don't know why I love you.

I giggle, let go and start to walk away....

Mark: Well, you can sleep on it and maybe the answer will come to you in the morning.

Me, calling back from the living room: It seems I've been sleeping on it for 19 years!

Mark: That just means you're dedicated.

Me: I think it means I'm slow.

Ah, marriage!
