Have a Marlis Day!

“Oh, Boy!”

Posted on: October 20, 2019

Recently, I’ve noticed that our responses to each other have become shortened to a simple, “Oh, Boy!” I guess more than 54 years of marriage does that to a couple. Adjectives, adverbs, and other modifiers have simply become unnecessary. These days, a normal conversation between us goes something like this:

Good game last night?  “Oh, Boy!”

How’s your steak?  “Oh, Boy!”

What about those leaves?  “Oh, Boy!”

Looking forward to Florida?  “Oh, Boy!”

You get the point. We didn’t plan or predict it. No one warned us. It just happened. I wonder if reaching 60 years of bliss, our responses to each other will be reduced to simple nods and grunts. Sigh…. 

Just glad we’re still “havin’ and holdin’.”
