Late last night Mr F smells my hair and says "mmm your hair smells good"
"That's because I'm using shampoo for women of color"
Mr F lets out a short guffaw and asks "Seriously?"
After this many years together you'd think he'd know by now that of course I am completely serious.
"Yeah... the shampoo is so thick it is like conditioner! And the conditioner is like conditioner conditioner!"
You see I take after this man....
and our abundant fine yet frizzy hair requires serious conditioning.
Mr F chuckles and says "Just like you and the Mahogany cards..."
Oh you know it!
I hate buying Mr F anniversary cards because you have to choose between two equally inaccurate messages... either some ridiculously over the top frilly card that says some asinine shit like "we are two breathing as one" or some ridiculous card with a cartoon man wearing a beer helmet holding a remote with some kind of cheesy message like "turn off the tv big guy we're gonna do it tonight".
I love the Mahogany cards from Hallmark because they are more like "this was not one of our better years but I guess I still love you."
These are great for every anniversary after your first... when what you really want to say is "At least we aren't divorced... oh yeah happy anniversary..."
