Let's Hear it for the Boy

Here she is my screen namesake!
I have been totally slacking my royal duties as Meme Princess.  So, I have to make up for it now!  
I hope you all play along!  I have neve seen one like this before!
The Mate Meme

1. Who is your mate?
My mate is my Hubby!

2. How long have you been together?
We met on May 18, 1990, began dating on May 30th, and here we are now, so I guess it is almost 17 and a half years.

3. How long dated?
We dated 4 months and 3 weeks, and then we were engaged.

4. How old is your mate?
42.  Ha ha ha.  I am still 41. 

5. Who eats more?
Hubby by far... the man can eat.

6. Who said "I love you" first?
That is a long story, but it was both of us, as we had a discussion about how we were feeling about each other, so quickly and strongly.

7. Who is taller?
Hubby is 6'3" and I am 5'5".  He wins.

8. Who sings better?
Hubby does a great baritone of Elvis' 'I Can't Help Falling in Love' but not much else.  I used to be able to sing, but damaged vocal chords mean I croak now.  lol

9. Who is smarter?
An ongoing question in my house!  LOL  If you go by SAT's, and grades, me.  If you go by street smarts, him.  Let's leave it at that.

10. Whose temper is worse?
Oh Hubby's by far and away... lol

11. Who does the laundry?
Mostly Hubby!  Yeah, he rocks. 

12. Who does the dishes?
The dishwasher.  I turn it on at night.  If he cooks a snack at night, I clean it up. 

13. Who sleeps on the right side of the bed?
Facing the headboard while standing at the foot of the bed, I am on the right.

14. Who pays the bills?
LOL... we both do... you see that is a nookie euphemism in our house! 

15. Who has bigger feet?
Hubby... big hands, big feet... lol

16. Who has longer hair?


17. Who is better with the computer?
Hubby is king of the hardware issues, I am the software and applications queen!

18. Who mows the lawn?
My dad, because Hubby doesn't do it with same OCD like obsession.

19. Who cooks dinner?
My dad!  He is the best!

20. Who drives when you are together?
Usually, Hubby.

21. Who pays when you go out?


22. Who is most stubborn?
Hmmm, that depends, I would say we both have our stubborn issues, but I would say Hubby.

23. Who is the first to admit when they are wrong?
Probably, Hubby, because I always right!  LOL

24. Whose parents do you see the most?
We live with mine in our extended family style home, but it would be mine anyhow.

25. Who kissed who first?
He kissed my cheek on date one, and after I tripped into his arms on date two, he really kissed me.  lol

26. Who asked who out?
Hubby asked me out.

27. Who proposed?
He did shortly after one month of dating.  He rendered me speechless.  I said 'yes'.  We knew it was just a matter of time before we would make it official.

28. Who is more sensitive?
Definitely, me.

29. Who has more friends?
Hmmm... probably him because of work and Scouting buddies.  But I have more close friends.  Does that make sense?

30. Who has more siblings?
He has 6 siblings, I have none, but my sister of the heart, Kathy!

31. Who wears the pants in the family?
LOL... we share the pants very well!
That was fun!  I hope you all play!  It will fun to learn a little more about your 'better half'!!! 
I hope everyone does it... even the men!  C'mon now... The Princess of Memes has spoken!
be well,
Toon of me by Russ at Inner and Outer Demons

helmswondermom said...

I had to play this one.  Check mine out.
Loved your answers.

randlprysock said...

I love the answers to this... very romantic!!  Like the graphics too.... especially the one at the bottom of the entry!!!  LOL Inner and OUter demons.  That would work in like three of my four entries this week.  I am way too stressed this week, but believe it or not, I was more stressed in the last eight weeks than the past few days, even though my entries sound absolutely awful lately with stress details.  I have no idea why that is.  I must hide what is going on most of the time with lighter talk.  Hmmmm.  Well, hope you have a great day and a good week!!!  Hugs,

wildautumn1 said...

That was cute! Have a great week!
