I write a lot about how much I love my husband and how we make a great team. What you may not know is that there are certain areas in which we are total opposites. He hates social media, for example. That makes me laugh like crazy, considering the fact that social media is WHAT I DO during almost every waking moment of my life.
(This is the part where I need to interrupt myself and tell you on behalf of Jim that his hatred of social media does not mean that he doesn’t respect what I do. He just hates social media. He is always very sweet to mention that when it comes up–as it often does–so I thought I’d be doing him a disservice if I didn’t put it here, too.)
More examples: he doesn’t keep up with pop culture, and he doesn’t use slang. Current slang, I mean. If I had a dollar for every dinner conversation with my sister, the boys, and me in which Jim said, “What does THAT mean?”, I’d have about a thousand dollars. Give or take.
I think he might be coming around though. He’s in China on business and we had this text exchange this morning.
It’s only a matter of time before I get him on Instagram. Maybe.
