While working my second job tonight, I was chatting with a table of 4 older couples, all of whom had been married at least 40 years. It came up that I’m getting married and that my invitations have not yet gone out. I mentioned that on the back of the RSVP card, I have a space for marriage advice, because I think some people have some very good ideas. For example, when you’re married, you should have two tubes of toothpaste, because there’s invariably one person who squeezes from the middle and one person who squeezes from the bottom.
Dave and I don’t even live together and he’s already mentioned that I squeeze the toothpaste WRONG. What? I don’t see directions on how to squeeze the toothpaste, so how can my method be WRONG? I’m not even going to entertain that argument, and we will have two tubes of toothpaste the second we’re married.
It turns out that of the 4 couples sitting at the table, each woman squeezes the toothpaste from the middle, and each man squeezes the toothepaste from the bottom.
So my question for you, dear reader, is: How do you squeeze the toothpaste? How does your spouse squeeze the toothpaste? Has this ever caused a disagreement?
WordPress won’t allow java, which means I can’t do a real poll…the poll will have to take place in the comments. I’ll post the results in one week. So please comment, otherwise I’ll have to share some very embarassing stories to punish you. 😯 Wait, who am I exactly trying to punish here?
