Nina waits.

For all sorts of things.

Nina hides.

Is serving stand and wait, or stand or wait?

So...what did Nina and Ed think of your cooks-your-breakfast new love?

What's with her gratuitous spousal abuse? What could any husband say or do that would mar the happiness of someone freshly in love?

"What could any husband say or do that would mar the happiness of someone freshly in love?"

Well, he could start with describing his own escapades with the love object.

That might get Nina out of her waiting game too.

It was a lovely evening. Twinkly bright. Though to my knowledge, no one at our table was married.

Sorry. The matter-of-fact coupleness implied by "Ed and I are to meet," and Helen's "what did Nina and Ed think," combined with Nina's freedom to request that Ed behave, all spelled marriage to me.

Plus, to me, someone who needs to be reminded to behave is more likely to be overly social than not -- a sort of aging enfant terrible. Now I'm wondering if Ed is an Eeyore*, or does he simply stare into his beer during any outing.

Nina, maybe if you said you were "laid back"?

Being a "waiter" sounds entirely too subservient.

It's ALL in first impressions, my dear.

I am so happy to be married to the woman I am married to.

Penny said...

If you're happy, clap your hands, Michael!

Penny needs to read more Nina. Nina would not say she was "laid back", because, well, she's not. She's not the agitated type, either, but she's someone who does things. She's not a lounging type.

On difficult days, I save my visit to Nina's blog for last, knowing I will have something sweet to close out the online day with.
