There are times, and they seem to be coming more frequently, when I realize that I have married the right woman. I think the first one I can recall was when she began referring to Lawdog as Uncle to my children all on her own. Well, that's not the first but it is definitely one that stands out in my mind.
The most recent came last night. However, before I tell you the story, I think I should share some background as to why it makes me beam with pride. A few years back I started play a little game called Everquest. Actually, it was my late brother-in-law who sucked me into that particular black hole of time. I would spend as many hours in the game as I spent at work. My wife constantly cursed "that game" to which I would respond, "I used to spend this time watching TV, no real difference."
Well, a couple years pass and Sony gives us Everquest 2. She bought it for me and I didn't really like it and went back to EQ1. Arryn (the wife) decides that we spent $90 on this damned game so she'll just see what all the hub-bub is about. Two years later and she's been playing it ever since. heh heh
Ok, here's that moment. Last night, long after I had gone to bed, Arryn was in here plugging away to finish a quest and was not about to go to bed until she was done...sigh. I am a lucky man.
So if you have a moment like that, cherish it and the one who gave it to you. Feel free to share your own.
