Odd couple?

After a few too many beers and some greasy food on Friday night, I learned something that I have never, ever considered.

Suz was the one who pointed it out.

Dave and I are an odd couple.

Dave immediately agreed.

I did not. I stared at them. I made my classic confused face. I scowled. I protested.

"No we're not! We're so similar!" I blurted out.

"Are you KIDDING?" Dave asked.

Suz added, "No. False. You guys definitely look like the odd couple."

"Nuh uh!" I said, ever so eloquent.

"Yes," Suz continued. "When my friend saw pictures of you two for the first time, she was like, 'They're engaged?' Most people just wouldn't see it."

"What? No, we totally look like a well-matched couple," I said.

Dave said, "Elle, look at me. And look at you."

I looked. "Okay, and?" I said.

"And look at how you're dressed versus how I'm dressed," he continued. "You wear nice clothes, look cute, very clean-cut. I dress like shit. I always wear a hat. I've got the piercings. I haven't shaved in a while."

I don't know if I grossly overestimate Dave's put-together appearance or underestimate my own. (Yeah, let's go with that. I'm simply MUCH more put-together than I think I am. Totally. MILES AHEAD OF DAVE.)

But, really, do you guys see it, this "odd couple" thing? And, People Who Know Us In Real Life, did YOU ever think that?

sorry, i disagree. i think you compliment each other. is this just about how you guys dress? i mean can't guys get away with less more stylishly than us girls anyways?

I mean....I wasn't going to say anything but....

Marie said...

You guys look like a cute couple.

I think I need to defend myself here. You are complete opposites of one another,not odd, just opposites. Like I said that night, you are so to the point and anal and detail oriented and Dave is very "why is the sky blue?". (BTW I know the sentence structure of that last sentence was like nails on a chalkboard for you) It's your differences that make you two so perfect for one another. I have never met a couple I've been more sure of than you two.

Perfect complements in my book. You may ACT like the Odd Couple but you look too f*ing cute in my book :)

I haven't once thought that you guys are odd. Then again, I am lucky to have known you for a while.

But I think things are best summed up as, "AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW" That is what I usually say when I see pictures of you two.

i agree with ang. and marie and well most everyone.

you compliment each other and that works, so why worry?! who cares how the outside seems anyway.

Molly said...

yeah, i don't see the odd couple at all. i guess it has to deal with what individuals think a couple would look like.

Audrey said...

I heard the song you guys chose for your wedding dance, and I was speechless.

I see you two as completely different people, that when you are together, you compliment each other.

You are best friends, cute as hell, fight with passion, make each other laugh and support each other...really, can it get any better than that?

You guys have something special.


PS Grunge and sleek/sexy go hand in hand.

I have had the exact same conversation. I've come to embrace it though because I've found that he brings out the qualities in me that I wouldn't have without him, and vice versa. I suspect it's the same with the two of you.

And now...excuse me while I go vomit at the magnitudes of cliche-ness I just slathered all over your blog.

Maxie said...

I think you guys look cute together! From the pictures you posted you don't look like opposites.

Rebekah said...

I've never met you guys, but I think you look good together in the pictures!

Boys aren't supposed to be as pretty and put-together as their ladies anyway.

Andy said...

You are a really fashionable person. Have I told you that before?
