The other day my Mattie and I were at the grocery store, shopping for cucumbers because I really wanted something like this. Apparently, cucumber shopping can be quite hysterical when you're as immature as we are (read: as immature as I am).
I don't know what they feed the cucumbers in our local grocery store, but these puppies are like a foot and a half long! I was marveling over the size of them when Matthew started trying to hurry me out of the produce section before I could make a scene (he knows by now not to expect me to act like a grown up in the cucumber section). Too bad for him, I had already found the one I wanted and was twirling it around like a baton. He tends to frown upon that, but I could tell that he was trying not to laugh so I took it a step further...I started poking him with it haha!
If you ever poke a man in the butt with a cucumber, he will probably snatch it away from you. So that didn't last for long, but as soon as he had grabbed it and turned around I ran away and hid from him! My poor husband then had to walk around the grocery store looking for me with nothing but a freaking foot and a half long cucumber in his hand! He found me quicker than expected (possibly due to the laughter coming from aisle 3??) but even still, it was enough time for him to get strange looks from everyone he passed. Welcome to a day in my husband's life.
I just love that when I am with him even a trip to the grocery store can gives us the giggles! We have so much fun together no matter what we do, and today at lunch I found myself thinking of yesterdays venture into the cucumber section and laughing to myself. I know it's just a little silly story, but I wanted to share it on the blog to keep that moment preserved. Before we move into our house, before our babies are sent to us from heaven...just my Mattie and I buying cucumbers and being in love.
