Many of you already know that Mr. Weasel and I have been married for a fairly long time and can surmise that we have a little something special going on to have six kids together
yes, that must be going on too and still happen to seriously dig each other.
What you may not know is that Mr. Weasel and I are not romantics in the traditional style. It's not that we don't enjoy romantic gestures, it's more that I am much more practical and show affection through simple actions such as
pointing and laughing playful banter and Mr. Weasel marches to the beat of the hamster wheel rattling around in between his ears a different drummer.
Why am I telling you this? I am telling you this so that I may share with you something that struck me as fantastically funny and gave me the opportunity to
point and laugh while making me fall head over heels for the Mr., yet again after all these years.
A few weeks back, Mr. W. and I headed out of the house for a special night out together, complete with dinner and dress shopping for him
shut up. It was for his Halloween costume. As a mood setter, my sweetheart set his MP3 player to his play list of "romantic, love songs that always make me smile and think of you", Commence with the Awwwwwwww-ing. simply titled "Twitterpated" You know, like in Bambi.
I smiled as his sweetness and melted when the first song in his list was one of my all time favorites, L-O-V-E.
Soon though, my expression changed to quizzical when the next song began.
and I quote; "I ask your mother if you were at home
She said yeah but you weren't alone
Oh sometimes I think that you're avoiding me"
Soon quizzical turned to morbid with Queen.
"When I’m gone
Don’t stop to wonder if I ever think of you
The same moon shines
The same wind blows
For both of us, and time is but a paper moon. . . be not gone"
I was then relieved to come back into the realm of 'normal' with another personal favorite, even if in a less traditional version by Steve Tyrell.
A few more songs and I was back to quizzical with Michael Buble` and Down With Love. ??????????
In the midst of my laughter that surrounded the incongruity of this romantic play list, I enjoyed my heartiest eruption of the evening when the list ended with something completely perfect and Weaselesque in summing up Weasel Love,
Yes, it's a kick in the head and I wouldn't want it any other way!
