My wife on the other hand is a very reluctant tech adopter. She is just now very slowly learning to admit that the MP3 player is superior to the personal CD player. She absolutely hates learning new gadgets. I find the thrill of learning a new gadget to be as addictive as any drug.
I restrain myself from bugging her to upgrade her outdated tech and she tries not to snicker when my bleeding edge device malfunctions and makes me scream. We both still think that our own way is a bit better, but in the end realize that there are benefits to each way of thinking. And…I just realized that this unwittingly became an explanation for how to make a marriage work. Heh.”
Our differing viewpoints on tech and gadgets fascinates me. There are endless options in the world of technology and to some extent they define our personalities. I’d love to hear from you folks about how you and your partners differ. Does it cause strife or bring you closer together? If you’re single does someone’s opinion on technology factor into your decision to pursue a relationship?
My Dearest Faith,
I know gifts and food are the typical way people spend Valentine’s Day, but I’ve never been that great at those sorts of things. So, I thought I would make you a modern day version of a mix tape. I hope you like it.
I know we’ve had some rough times in the not too distant past, but I thought I would let you know that I’m doing my best to make sure they are behind us.
I know this video always makes you sad, but I have to include it anyway. You always tell me that I have to be the one to die first because you couldn’t live without me. This is to let you know that I’ll be right behind you because I can’t live without you either and I don’t want you to be alone.
I chose this song because I know you love April Smith and this song makes you feel happy and bouncy and there’s nothing I love more than to see you happy.
The next song is because it’s one of our favorite parts in “Love Actually” and because no mix for you would be complete without The Beatles.
And finally I leave you with our song. It’s even more appropriate now than ever before given the adventure we’re about to set out on. I love you more than anything, my adorable Kitten. I can’t imagine life without you in it and I hope I never have to find out what it will be like. Happy Valentine’s Day.
