My boyfriend ED is ridiculously strong. I’m talking Incredible Hulk strong, or at least he seems that way to me. Obviously this means that any chance I have to call him a sissy, is one I do not hesitate to act on.
Saturday night after our exciting night of working out together, getting Indian food (curry not campfire) and fighting for 30 minutes in Blockbuster over which movie to rent, ED gave me the perfect opportunity to challenge his strength.
We were home, and had just gotten into our movie watching clothes, when he started to complain about having sore legs from a workout a few days earlier.
ED: I don’t think you understand, I was squatting more than double what you weigh!
Me: Psssh! You couldn’t squat me.
At which point ED picked me up, put me over his shoulders and proceeded to prove me wrong by doing not only deep squats, but lunges as well. WITH ME ON HIS SHOULDERS laughing uncontrollably.
ED: I could probably bench press you too.
Me: No way. For one thing I couldn’t hold still enough for you to lift me because I’d be having a giggle fit and would probably fall on your face and break your nose.
ED: Giggle fit?
ED: Just adding another reason to the list.
Me: The list of why I am so awesome?
ED: No, the list of things you never grew out of.
He has me there. I do have a pretty long list of things I’ve never grown out of, but it is also a list of things I never want to grow out of.
Giggle fits, playing in makeup for hours, finding magic in the first snow fall, wanting to discover the end of a rainbow, and being the first to jump into any large body of water – just a few of the things I never, ever, want to grow out of.
What about you? What’s on your list of things you never want to grow out of?
