The Enigmatic Mr. Lime

1. Who is your man?
Define 'your man.' I don't exactly own anyone. Slavery was abolished in the 19th century. Oh, you mean who is the guy I live with? That would be Mr. Lime.

2. How long have you been together?
Define 'together.' We got engaged in 1987. Yesterday, we spent most of the day in the same house.

3. How long dated?
Um, well that's sort of complicated. We didn't really date in a traditional sense. We were best buds for a year and did everything together, sometimes in a group, sometimes just us. Then we went on the bike trip where the entire group agreed everyone would stay platonic, if you recall. He proposed to me a couple weeks after we got back and a month after his first proposal I said yes. You figure it out. I can't and I lived it.

4. How old is your man?
Chronologically or attitudinally? Dog years or human?

5. Who eats more?
Hhhmmm, when he was still an avid distance runner he did definitely. Since he doesn't run anymore he eats like a bird, so now I do.

6. Who said "I love you" first?
Him definitely, but I say it more often.

7. Who is taller?
If he were shorter than me he'd be a ridiculously short man. He's got 8 inches on me...wait, oh nevermind....

8. Who sings better?
He has a very nice singing voice. I could peel paint with mine.

9. Who is smarter?
According to Wechsler, Stanford-Binet, GPA, and Mr. Lime's own testimony that would be me.

10. Whose temper is worse?
Hhmmm, I tend to be more vocal about it when I am angry but I think he gets irritated more frequently.

11. Who does the laundry?
Yours truly.

12. Who does the dishes?
Me again, aren't I so lucky?

13. Who sleeps on the right side of the bed?
Is there really a right or wrong side of the bed?

14. Who pays the bills?
They have to be paid???

15. Who has bigger feet?
Uh, given that he is so much taller than me, I certainly hope he does so he doesn't get knocked over in a strong wind.

16. Who has longer hair?
He shaves his head, what do you think?

17. Who is better with the computer?
The computer likes me better. It told me so.

18. Who mows the lawn?
He does. Once a month whether it needs it or not. Ok, in his defense, we have more moss than grass.

19. Who cooks dinner?
Can he even find the kitchen without GPS?

20. Who drives when you are together?
I drive him crazy with my messy desk. He drives me crazy leaving dirty dishes all over the house.

21. Who pays when you go out?
Married couples are supposed to go out?

22. Who is most stubborn?
Just call us the irresistible force and the immovable mass.

23. Who is the first to admit when they are wrong?

24. Whose parents do you see the most?
Mine by virtue of being in closer proximity.

25. Who kissed who first?
He leaned in first.

26. Who asked who out?
Remember? We didn't date, but I guess even just as friends he invited me first.

27. Who proposed?
He did, three times.

28. Who is more sensitive?
Tough call

29. Who has more friends?
Probably me, mainly because he doesn't have a need for people the way I do. He'd be fairly content as a hermit.

30. Who has more siblings?
He had 2 brothers to my one. He has 2 step siblings. I have one. I have at least 3 half-siblings out in the world somewhere. You figure it out.

31. Who wears the pants in the family?
Well, gee we both wear pants most days but he has been known to occasionally don a lovely little frock.


M said...

Hm....your answer to Who is Taller sounds like the beginning of math word problem...

"If Mr Lime is 8 inches taller than Mrs Lime and Mrs Lime is 3x's taller than she was when she was 5...and she was ? inches tall at tall is Mr Lime in inches?"

wait...we need to know how tall you are to know how tall Mr Lime is!

21. Who pays when you go out?
Married couples are supposed to go out?

That is the understatement of the year! Its been so long since Dragonwife and I did something as a couple that when my cousin, who had recently moved into the area, said she would babysit Spoilboy and Wiggles for us so we could go out both Dragonwife and I asked her why.

S said...

Moosekahl said...

Love the frock, he looks quite lovely.

I want to hear the story about THREE proposals.

Keyser Soze said...

That was a sweet post and now I feel all bad for taking your side.
The picture of you two in drag eyes...bleach...please...

barman said...

It took me half a day to get through it because I am at work and, imagine this, they expected me to work but I love your Meme's so I hung in there.

You sounded a bit argumentative there for a while but it got better. As to the wrong side of the bed... isn't that a saying ... "they got up on the wrong side of the bed"?

MyUtopia said...

What a fun meme! I would say my husband definitely eats more than me.

lime said...

lecram, generally i concur

moose, i had no answer the first time, the second time i said no, the third time i said yes. he wore me down.

The Zombieslayer said...

Too funny about the who eats more. Back when I worked out, I used to easily consume 2500-3000 calories a day. Now, we eat probably the same amount of food, which is closer to 2000 calories a day or maybe even slightly less.

G-Man said...

Ahhh, True Love!!
Great Job Trini..xoxox

snowelf said...
