US BEING NERDS, BUT GENUINELY TRYING TO BE COOL, AT CAPE MAY, NJ EARLIER THIS WEEK

We don’t exactly finish each others sentences

but…

we think of the same punch lines at the same time in social situations

we chime in with

“that’s what she said” in the same under your breath grin

we recall lines from favorite british sitcoms and say them with the identical bad british accents:

“well you are incredibly old”

“they are fairly regular, the beatings, yes”              https://i2.wp.com/www.clickypix.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/The-IT-Crowd-Quotes-Images-1003.jpg

 

we often will text each other random texts, after hours and hours of silence, at the same time

we think 99% of music made after the year 2000 sucks

but music from the ’90s is timeless

we can tell by a slight purse of the lips, narrowing of the eyes, what the other is thinking

we know the precise moment when it is time RIGHT NOW for the kids to traipse upstairs to bed

to leave the restaurant

say good bye and make for the door at friends and families

we know when the other needs a swift kick in the butt to “get over it”

or space

or a long kiss

we have this invisible thread, binding us in shared jokes, unspoken needs, and mirrored tastes

because over the last decade and a half we have fought to stay

CLOSE.

BURROW DOWN IN COMMON SAND TO NOT GET PRIED APART

Linking up, this start to the long memorial weekend { i love memorial weekend…the unofficial start to summer}

with the ever poetic, spiritual, and wise Lisa Jo Baker.

click on the link to join in or be inspired at what 5 minutes {or so} a computer screen, and a common platform, can produce.

Cheers.

  1. This post and your words are beautiful. I could see much of the relationship my husband and I share as I read them. Creative, fun, enthusiastic descriptions of your life together. Enjoy your weekend and your official start to summer! I was blessed to visit your blog today!

  2. Love the selfie! You two are so cute! I’ve never been to Cape May. Heard it’s beautiful. We romped around Rehobeth and Dewey Beaches in Delaware for a time. Happy Memorial Day!
