I have been thinking of our comparability.
She is chocolate, I am butter pecan.
WE were headed up the East Coast, above Virginia. Sherry wanted a cone of ice cream. We stopped at a fast food place. She ordered Chocolate. They had vanilla. This is exactly what the young lady said, "You can get vanilla, there is not difference except the color!" She said that to a Chocoholic!
In school she loved English, I was into anything Mathematic.
She is sugar, I am salt.
She is EXACT, I generalize***. If someone asks when we were in Idaho, I might say, "A couple years ago, maybe in the fall."
She will say, "August of 2012."
Candy? She is Milky Way- Hershey, I am Snicker, Mars , ZERO, Peanut plank.
She has started liking dark chocolate, we all know God created MILK CHOCOLATE!
She prefers Ice cream for a snack, I like a carrot or an Apple.
(Don't get me wrong, I do Ice Cream but prefer sherbet)
Cooking she will use measuring spoons/cups. I dump in an estimated amount.
Temperatures out or in. She prefers 78-92 I'm okay from 20 to 100 degrees. She carries a sweater in the summer just in case the ac is too cold at stores or restaurants.
(To be honest here I think restaurants keep the temp too cold for comfort)
She likes brown sugar in her oatmeal, I like it sweet or plain.
With all our differences, she still loves me and life is great.
WE are both conservative, hate waste. We neither one care the size of our living quarters, We could be in 2700 sqft but are just as happy in this 320 sqft.
We both love to travel.
WE have never made it a practice of separate vacations, we enjoy each other too much. WE traveled with the boys on the 'cheap', camping was our style vs motels. There was a reason early on, we could not afford 5-7 days in a motel hahaha.
***Caveat on generalizations: I know her exact birthday and our exact anniversary.
Cars of 1956, the year we were married.
