40 reasons he loves me

Author: randomandodd  |  Category: Shaun

I was writing my top 40 things that happened in 2004 last night and Shaun came in and asked what I was doing. This is when I came up with the bright idea of what I wanted for Christmas.
I told him I wanted him to write the top 40 reasons why he loves me. He didn’t seem to thrilled about it and I didn’t think I would see it, but I came into work this morning and he had sent me the email. He said it was okay if I post it on my blog…so here you go. And this is why I love him, because he loves the most random things about me.

40. You name and speak to inanimate objects as if they are your extended family
39. You get more excited about me making bacon or grilled cheese sandwiches than if I make a full meal
38. The orgasmic look on your face when you torture my warm skin with your frigid feet
37. The way you still think you can turn your head (but keep your eyes fixed on the monitor) and pretend to pay attention
36. The way you change words into Kristese (awns cream?)
35. Your hand gestures that try to translate when your words aren’t working
34. The sly smile you get right before you do something evil
33. ***tacklehugs***
32. How excited you get for your friends and family when they tell you things.
31. The way you try to talk to me when you’re still 98.75% asleep
30. My sweaters look better on you
29. The way you write, I can hear your voice when I read your words
28. You always notice when I buy something new, whether its a shirt or a jar of pickles
27. You can pull off the pontytail through the baseball hat look
26. You get physically nervous during the end of any close game on TV
25. I can see pieces of your personality in each of your girls, like you left them laying around and the girls kept them
24. Every old song reminds you of someone or a random moment from your past
23. You hate seafood, sour cream, and guacamole just like me
22. You were SURE that my dad needed a duck for protection, and we had to shop for just the right duck
21. You’ll actually endure horror movies with me even though you don’t like them
20. You were excited for an entire month about the availability of Starbucks’ gingerbread lattes
19. You think straws are flexible toothpicks
18. Your frustrated face when I challenge you on something
17. You are a Yankess fan who selfishly rooted for the Red Sox curse to end because YOU wanted to break it
16. You will change out of pajamas and back into your clothes if a friend needs you to go somewhere
15. When you smile, you smile with your eyes
14. When you want something, you buy it…then and there. I act like I don’t like it, but its pretty impressive. I don’t do that much
13. In your sleep, your legs and feet grab me like shrink-wrap
12. The tip of my index finger fits perfectly in your trademark chin dimple
11. You make me laugh, nice to be on the receiving side of a funny line sometimes
10. You appreciate when I dress up or smell good
9. If my painting or food isn’t quite right, you tell me and it doesn’t piss me off
8. When you laugh REALLY hard, your laugh goes silent for 3-4 seconds
7. You’re pretty, but you think you aren’t
6. You have a great bed and amazing water pressure (how did this not make the top 5?)
5. The look on your face when we say the same thing at the same time is priceless
4. You treat my kids in the same abusive and violent manner as your own kids
3. Your eyes tell me you love me twice as many times as your voice does
2. You know when I need a break, a nap, a punch to the lower abdomen, a kiss on the neck(on rare occasions, all four)
1. When I’m with you, I can be myself ……when I’m not with you, I wear your clothes and pretend you’re there

He loves me.
