We had already walked past it. A good 10 steps past it. But the brief glance that I took stayed with me. I obviously have self control issues.

I am such a SUCKER for Haagen Dazs strawberry ice cream.

After the brief detour from the ice cream counter and while I was scarfing down my cone, I happened to look at the poster for the Armani store -- the usual gorgeous guy wrapped around a super skinny model. A question popped up.

Me: Do you mind very much that I'm not super sexy? (Don't ask where the question came from. I am an expert at asking these types of questions.)

Hubby: No.

Me: So you agree that I'm NOT super sexy?

Hubby: (with an ooops! expression on his face) Was that a trick question?

Me: Yup. And you just failed miserably. (Honestly, you'd think he'd be used to trick questions by now.)


And we laughed ourselves crazy on the way back to the car.

Eleven years, two kids and the occasional let's-just-have-a-quick-dinner-cause-I-need-to-unwind date but we still have such a fabulous time with each other.

So, nope. Can't complain.

You are a tricky chick, but a happy one, obviously. So good to see someone in a happy marriage.

I ask the same sort of questions (what would you do if we were on a boat that was sinking and only one of us could survive?) but my husband answers wrong and worse than this ON PURPOSE !

I'm so glad you had fun and got your strawberry Haagen Daaz ice-cream!

Naughty Menchie! 11 years is a long time and you are both great to maintain it.

You're the best!

You are flourishing because you like each other as much as you love each other. I see a lot of 'couples' who cannot seem to manage both.

That's so sweet. You're so lucky :) Somebody pretty much told me yesterday that me being married was wrong, a mistake, but he is soooo wrong. I look forward to 11 years and two kids! :) hehe

Hi M--OK, I'm still waiting for the New England Journal of Science to announce that after all the testing they've learned that ice cream is the perfect food for humans (laugh).

Oh, guys are never prepared for those trick questions (smile)!
