Tag team music, in full effect

The scene: Post-dinner last night, still sitting at the table. Dave is mindlessly eating my fries. I am mindlessly eating chocolate chips.


Dave, abruptly: Take these away from me.

I confiscate the fries and give my chocolate the side-eye.

Me: Now you take these away from me.

Dave grabs the bag of chocolate and tosses it aside.

Me, to the dog: That's what we call "tag team," Rocco.

::pause::

Me: Tag team, back again...

::pause::

Dave: No.

Me: ...Check and direct and let's begin!

Dave: Party on, party people, lemme hear some noise.

Together: DC's in the house, jump jump rejoice. Party over here, party over there, wave your hands in the air, shake your derriere. These three words when you're getting busy. Whoomp, there it is.

Me: Hit me.

Dave, shaking his head: My god.

Me: It's gonna be SO easy to embarrass our kids.

That's when you know you're with the right person.

Love this vignette of your life. Beautiful and silly, all at the same time.

First of all, this is amazing. Second of all, I think that all the time, about how easily I will embarrass my children. As I get older I really embrace my nerdiness more and more. And considering I subjected a work email yesterday "expecto patronum!" and got harassed for being a nerd by my contemporary, my children are most certainly going to hide their heads in shame. And if they aren't embarassed enough, I will bust out my running man.

fact: 3 out of the last 4 posts reference children.

Am i detecting the faint ticking of a biological clock?

I agree with Mrs. MidAtlantic - that's exactly how you know you're with the right person. Moments like that are priceless!

This is like, straight out of our kitchen. Except ours usually involves some ridiculous commercial like that old Starburst add that goes "Berries and cream, berries and cream...I'm a little lad who likes berries and cream."

Cue the dancing and prancing.

I love marriage.
