Fat and Warm

So the phrase "opposites attract" has a lot of meaning for Troy and I.

We have different likes, and interests, and hobbies, but we have also managed to find common ground.

If nothing else, it makes for an interesting marriage.

If fact, have you ever taken those surveys that tell you what your perfect companion would be like? We have. And according to those surveys, mine isn't Troy. Actually, we have even taken a couple of those surveys that say couples like us shouldn't even bother trying...

Well, you know how well I take advice.

So when things are good, they are REALLY good, and when things are bad...we'll just apologize now for those of you who have been caught in the middle of a Troy and Denise squabble, and to those of you who haven't yet had the privilege, well...I apologize in advance.

Anyway. I bring this up because Troy and I have spent our entire marriage with one us feeling cold (Troy) and the other one feeling hot (me). This was fine when we had a car with dual air control, or even when we go to bed because Troy will wear his long johns and socks (and even a little hat) to bed when it's cold. Me? No covers, no sheets, nothing. I'm just too hot.

But with my recent weight loss something strange has happened here at home...I now get cold at night (gasp)! And it has made for some evening tug-of-wars as Troy and I compete for covers.

So as we were disucssing how to rememdy this situation, I told him, "Well, I can either be fat and warm, or thin and cold."

...And it must have been a long night for him because he said he'd take fat and warm.

WHAT?!?

Now, don't get mad, because I'm pretty sure he was kidding...but it made for a funny little disucssion and of course...for a funny little blog post.

It sounds as if you each need your own blanket. Or maybe Denise you can get a hat for when you sleep.

Congrats on the weight loss (c:

I'm so glad that you finally know how it feels to be cold:).

Have you noticed that you get more cold when it's dark?
