Conversations from Cohabitation

So yesterday, I heard a story about CB from about 15 years ago that I’d never heard before. And it was one of those that, had it happened to me, I would’ve told everyone because it’d make me a hero in the eyes of my friends. But because he’s him, he doesn’t share ANYTHING and it drives me nuts.

Fast forward to 6 hours after initially hearing the story and we were sitting in the living room, quietly reading.

Me: “If I were to commit a crime, I’d want you as my partner.”
CB: “Ok…”
Me: “You’d NEVER tell anyone. I mean, you’d have guilt and stuff, but you’d never be one of those people who, like, rats on a friend or tells someone’s secrets. It’s admirable.”
CB: “Thanks.”


Me: “I love that you’re not even asking me why I’m telling you this.”
CB: “I’m guessing it’s only a matter of time before you’ll tell me, so I’ll wait.”


Me: “So this was my train of thought: I was thinking about that story and how, if that were me, I would’ve told everyone. Um, it took an hour after hearing it and I’d already told Beth and Matt. And Beth said she would also tell everyone. And then I started thinking about how you probably didn’t even go home and brag to your friends in college about it, which would’ve been a typical college guy thing to do.”
CB: “No, you’re right, I didn’t mention it.”
Me: “Right. And then I thought about how you’d totally be the guy other guys could, like, kind of do stupid or even bad things around and nobody would ever find out from you because you’re like a steal trap.”


Me: “And then I thought how, if we were to rob a bank, you’d totally keep that quiet. I mean, we’d never rob a bank, but if we did, I’d give it away immediately. I’d be like I JUST ROBBED A BANK OH MY GOD. And you’d just sit there silently. It’s sort of admirable and creepy all at the same time.”
CB: “Um…thank you?”
Me: “I’ll say more admirable, though. But geez, I married you and now I’m finding out that there are all sorts of fun stories from your past that you haven’t told me!”
CB: “Why would I ever tell you that story? It was about another girl.”
Me: “Uh, FYI, if I had anything close to that story to tell, I’d tell you about every 6 months just so we could high five about it.”
CB: “There’s something wrong with you.”

Happy Monday, everyone! 


  1. Now I think we all need to know the story! :) Happy Monday! ---Amanda

    1. Haha I'm practicing being discrete; it does not come naturally. It's nothing scandalous, just one of those high five moments that I totally would've told everyone! :-)

    2. Ha ha! My husband doesn't keep anything fun to himself. There's not a lot of fun there though. Normally just stuff where I'd just roll my eyes! ha ha! -Amanda

  2. I can relate so friggin much to that story. When my best friend told me she was pregnant, I was barely through the door when I told my SO about it, and he was like "Oh good, well I knew they had been trying." Say what??? And you didn't think to share this news with me??? *facepalm*

    1. Right??? HOW do you keep that stuff to yourself? The notion is lost on me (obviously...)

  3. I'm with you. This is why I never break the law. Even if I get pulled over on the highway for having my taillight out, I'll be like "I drank before I was 21. I'm sorry."
