I Love Everything About You
"I Love Everything About You." That's what he said to me this morning as I dressed in my skull cap and boots to take the dog out for a dump in the dusting of late winter snow we had overnight. I countered, quickly: "That's a lie." "Well," he said, "Pretty much everything about you." "Oh, in the course of less than five seconds we're down to 'pretty much,'" I said to him. And he continued digging the hole, albeit honestly: "Well, most things about you." And that's where we left it. In less than ten seconds we migrated from "Everything" to "Most things." You gotta love honesty. And you gotta love being together for nearly 12 years.
