Songs in a bottle

Last night, Scott was making a salad and I was trying to figure out what we could possibly eat with it. It's slim pickin's in our cabinets right now. We're not broke or anything (thankfully); I just don't have time or energy to make a proper trip to the grocery store. Whatever.

Anyway, I ended up pulling two almost-empty bags of potato products out of the freezer. There were Trader Joe's oven fries and Stop & Shop's tater nuggets. I presented the idea of mixed potato products to the Count, he was in, I put them on the pan and into the oven. He moved out to the dining room and started singing a song.

It was to the tune of Time in a Bottle, a song I'm not all that familiar with, except that it's a tune Scott comes back to again and again when he makes up songs.

He makes up songs on the spot basically all the time. I have to tell you the truth: half the time I don't even listen to what he's singing because he's constantly singing these made-up songs to tunes I don't know. Also, sometimes it's a tune I know, but I don't recognize it because, well, Scott has anything but perfect pitch.

So I was only half paying attention, washing some dishes, when I heard Scott from the other room singing on the top of his lungs: "There never seems to be enough ketchup for all the tater tots you want to eat..."

This morning, I was talking to him from the bathroom while he was in the kitchen. He started singing a song about his Auditory Hallucination Girlfriend, which featured the line, "She's out of sight!"

A few weeks ago, I was feeling like Scott and I had fallen into a nice pattern for living. We loved each other. Great. I was a little sad that I didn't feel sick with the love anymore, but it seemed fine. But then, suddenly, I'm more in love with Scott now than ever and I'm sick all over again with the love.

What a sweet blog! yes, it certainly sounds like you are more in love than ever, now that you are well settled with "the count" aka "ethan enthusiast." Sometimes the little lady and i have the conversation of "Would you want to meet me all over again and go through the courting phase again?" and my reply is always NO WAY! I think part of the excitement of a wonderful new romantic relationship is wondering if the person you are courting is really the person that you hope he/she is....I feel so happy knowing that double J is the person i hoped she was! The uncertainty/unconscious uncertainty sure is exciting, but i wouldnt trade stability and the real deal for uncertainty - that's for shiz.

If I dated Scott all over again, I wonder how much earlier I would realize he was the real deal? Of If I would at all! I nearly didn't see him a second time. I'm glad things went the way they did because, look at us, we're surrounded by the love.
