The Argument I Had With My Husband

So remember how in the last post I was whining about how we can’t find an apartment in which to reside anywhere in all of Columbus, Ohio? We found an apartment. Barring calamity, we will have shelter from the winter winds and also off-street parking.

And this is where the differences between me and my sweet, witty, and shockingly handsome husband become more apparent. (Speaking of which…Kyle, have I told you today that you are sweet and witty and shockingly handsome?)

Here’s how the conversation went:

Elizabeth: “I totally want to rent this apartment. I think it could be a whole new adventure!”

Kyle: “See, I feel like you have a really weird definition of ‘adventure.’ When I think ‘adventure,’ I think, ‘skydiving,’ ‘bunjee-jumping,’ ‘extreme sports…’ When you think of ‘adventure,’ you think of rundown old apartments in creepy neighborhoods

Elizabeth: It’s not creepy! It was built in the 1950’s! It looks like where the heroine in a Nora Ephron movie would live! It’s quirky and vintage!

Kyle: You mean, ‘old and decrepit.’

This is the point in the blog post where I say it. Men.

Sweet, Witty, and Shockingly Handsome redeemed himself by following that last comment up with: “I can live anywhere as long as I’m there with you. I just want you to be happy.” That’s the answer I was hoping for.

Anyway, we’re feeling hopeful about this place. I’ll let you know when we know for sure!

love, elizabeth

while I agree the kitchen is cute, all I see is DYSFUNCTIONAL!!!!! It will certainly accomplish the all important task of being an apartment kitchen, but I'm with Kyle here: Elizabeth has the most unique, exciting, and totally unexpected definition of the word "adventure". I have to say that I truly believe if I could learn to use your definition more effectively in my own life I would generally be less stressed and more excited about every day.

I love the built-ins! I really do think my dream home would have a ton of built in shelving.
