We are sitting on the couch.

I say, “I’m coming over to see you.”

He says, “Why?”

I say, “Did you say why?”

He says, “No, I said ‘I’m glad.”




#256: Movie Mondays – Contagion January 30, 2012

Filed under: Uncategorized — Karyl @ 9:00 am
Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Genre: Drama/Thriller

Description (IMDb): A thriller centered on the threat posed by a deadly disease and an international team of doctors contracted by the CDC to deal with the outbreak.

Wife: This was our Saturday night movie this weekend.  I was on the edge of my seat for most of the movie.  I find viruses interesting and was into the virus reproduction rate background.  What was scariest to me was not the contagious virus but the breakdown in society with the violence/looting.  Very terrifying when humans become barbarians.

Husband: It was a great movie.  There was lots of good suspense but I expected things to move a little faster.  I certainly enjoyed it and am happy we bought it.

Husband-wife compatibility rating: 8.5

What truths about marriage did God communicate to us?  I believe that it was no coincidence that the first miracle Jesus performed took place at a wedding, the wedding in Cana.  When the wine ran short, Jesus turned water into wine.

Here are other messages God gives us about marriage:

  • Marriage is permanent.  Matthew 19:16
  • Marriage is friendship.  1 Samuel 20:42
  • Marriage is love. 1 Peter 1:22
  • Marriage is primary.  Genesis 2:24
  • Marriage is compatible, balanced, and has a strong foundation.  2 Corinthians 6:14-15

He looks at me with a big smile.

Says, “Come here.”

I go to him.

“I’d marry you all over again.”

I say,”You would?” with a big smile on my face.

He says, “Yes.”

I say, “Oh, how sweet. I’d marry you again too.”

Then he looks at me and says, “I’d change a few things though.”

My husband has a dimple on his right cheek and I must say it is the cutest thing.  Dimples are mysterious and marvelous.  His dimple is unquestionably one of the things I love about being married!  I get to look at it all the time and even put my finger in it!  🙂

We are taking the subway together and walking from the parking lot to the terminal.  As usual, I am chatting away. 

“Shhhh,” says my husband.

“Why can’t we talk?  Look around.  See all these people talking to each other?”

“They are having a conversation,” he says.  “With you it’s a soliloquy. It’s like you are doing Hamlet all the time.  ‘To be or not to be.  That is the question…'”

Well, really.  Tell me how you really feel!  🙂


#251: Movie Mondays – The Princess Bride January 23, 2012

Year: 1987

Genre: Adventure, Comedy Family

Description (IMDb): A classic fairy tale, with swordplay, giants, an evil prince, a beautiful princess, and yes, some kissing (as read by a kindly grandfather). 

Wife: What can I say, I’m a sucker for fairy tales and I loved this movie.  I’ve probably seen it 100 times and would watch it again.  It’s fun and funny.   I like the writing.  It’s over the top silly at times but so enjoyable.  I love the wedding scene where the priest pronounces marriage as maa-widge.  First movie I ever saw Cary Elwes or Robin Wright.  A must see.

Husband: I thought it was fun.  It has a nice storyline with good comedic additions.  This is one of Mandy Patinkin’s first roles.  Loved the “My name is Inigo Montoya.  You killed my father;prepare to die.” 

Husband-Wife Compatibility Score: 8*

*My husband wanted me to make sure I let everyone know he gave this a 6.  So yes, I did give it a 10!  🙂
