A VD Meme ... Courtesy of Dr. Spo

I took this little quiz at Spo's spot yesterday and thought I'd share my answers here, too. Let's rip ...

Where you first met: In an AOL chatroom; so last century! In person was at the Ft Lauderdale airport.

How did you meet: He commented on something in the chat, and I replied to him, and we started talking.

First date: At a small Cafe on Las Olas in Ft Lauderdale July 11, 1999.

How many years together: We celebrated twenty years last fall.

Age difference: I am one year older than Carlos.

Who was interested first: I think it was mutual while online, but when we moved to speaking by phone, his accent sealed the deal for me.

Who is taller: I am.

Most obnoxious in-laws: I like his family, and he likes mine, so I don’t think we have obnoxious in-laws.

Who said “I Love you” first: I think it may have been Carlos.

Worst temper: I have the worst temper though I do keep it in check. Carlos is VERY easy-going.

Most sensitive: Definitely me.

Most annoying habit: He doesn’t listen and I talk to much, so maybe our annoying habits feed off each other?

Most forgiving: We are good at fighting, getting it out, and moving on. I think this is a tie.

Loudest: Utterly and always me … even when he plays the trumpet!

Who has the most useless facts: My father says my head is filled with superfluous data so I win this one!

Funniest: I am more often funny, but when Carlos gets funny, it’s hilarious because it’s unexpected.

Who wears the pants in the family: We each take control of the things in out little family; one rule we have kind of explains that: I take care of what goes INTO the cats, and he takes care of what comes OUT of them.

Most stubborn: Me.

Falls asleep first: Carlos falls asleep in seconds.

Most impatient: Me.

Better driver: Since Carlos no longer drives because of his vision, it’s clearly me!

Biggest neat freak: Neither and both?

Most social: Carlos. I don’t like people; I kid. But I am more of a loner, homebody person.

Least likely to remember to do what the other one asks him to do: Carlos. I have a fabulous memory!

Most competitive: Carlos.

Best cook: I am a better cook, while Carlos, as I like to say, is a MasterBaker. He’d be MasterBaking all day long if he could.

Who is the handy-person: Carlos is the fixer, while I am the painter in the family.

Here were are in New York in about 2005?

Congrats on 20 years, Bob. It always makes me happy when I hear about folks that found that one special person to share their lives together and they make it last. Here's to 20 more.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
I’ve been out of sorts since this trial mess which has left me a mess. My joy from the inauguration evaporated. Your answering Spo’s questions has lifted my evening. Thank you.

No you may not, Carlos really doesn't want his picture on the blog, so this is the one you get.
