How to Stay Happily Married Tip #5 Forgive

On the road to Las Vegas……
Shelley: Hmmm……
John: What? What?
Shelley: Nothing. Just listening.

John: For what? What’s wrong? Tell me.

Shelley: I just told you. Just listening. Like always. Why are you panicking?
John: Ahhhh, the electric jack not working, the tire leaking. I just get unsettled if things don’t go as they should when we pack up.


Shelley: We cranked the jacks by hand and just filled the tire. We’re set.
John: I know you’re right. But, I don’t have a good feeling. Last time I didn’t have a good feeling, I forgot to connect the electricity to the fifth wheel. We ended up dragging the plug through six lanes of traffic without signal lights or brakes. God.



Shelley: We’re fine. 
John: …….Was that the wind? How bad do you think it is? 
Do you want me to drive?
Shelley: Holy Christ. Relax.

John: WHY ARE YOU CHECKING THE REAR VIEW MIRROR???????? 
Shelley: FOR TRAFFIC!!!!! JESUS!!!! YOU’RE DOING IT AGAIN. YOU’RE SCARING THE CRAP OUT OF ME!! WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU????
John: I can’t help it if I’m safety conscious. 
Shelley: Stop! …….Please. You’re freaking me out.
John: Sorry. Sorry. I won’t do it any more. 
Shelley: Promise? 
John: Promise.
Shelley: All good?
John: All good. 
Shelley: Great. LOL. You know, the kids make fun of us when we say that. They say old people think it means “Lots of love.” You know what I say? I say…………………….


HOLY  SHIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!


John: AHHHHHH!!!!!!!!  WHAT?? WHAT????


Shelley: Ha! Ha! Ha! Sorry. Ha! Ha! Ha! Couldn’t help myself. 
John:………. 
Shelley: Oh come on. I said I was sorry. You’ve got to admit that you would have done the same……LOL? 

Shelley and John
