* That I'm right 50% of the time I think I'm wrong.

* That the rest can be forgiven for the sake of humanity.

* That sex with someone you know and care for can be a lot of fun.

* But he's not all that convinced that She's particularly interested in our everyday comings and goings.

* He likes it that way.

* He believes the first Star Wars trilogy was unbeatable.

* But the second was important to the storyline.

* He doesn't hold it against me that I put that thought in his head.

* He believes that bringing dinner to him while he's playing WOW qualifies me for sainthood.

*sniffle* I'd say I want one like him, but I'm marrying my own version of wonderful in 15 days! It's very cool that you are able to recognize what you have and able to share it with the world (and presumably the DH). Congrats to you both. :)

What does MILF mean?

He sounds like a good man even if he is a Kings fan :-)

What a nice tribute for no special reason!

Finding someone who you can appreciate for his/her goodness and who appreciates you back is a rare gift. I have a husband like that and it's worth more than all the money in the world. He tells me that we're rich where it counts and I believe him.

He rocks. But we knew that already.

Great post - and a great Mate, mate! I'd say he was a keeper - definitely don't trade him in on a couple of 20ish year olds!

Go MILFs!
