When the motion of the breeze makes you weak
Or when the weight of your load makes you buckle at the knees
Forgive but don’t forget; learn but don’t feel bad
The voyage that you made makes you the best friend I ever had
The world is slowly turning and soon we all will rest
The pain settles deep within you like an uninvited guest
But no worry, you don’t have to sit alone trembling in fear
I won’t let you down, together we will persevere
You may not see the character or beauty that you are
But your natural talent surpasses many by far
I look at you with the utmost honor; yearning to reach your height
In comparison to what I do, I just never get things right
I love the way you speak your heart and the fact we both can cry
Tears without shame & laughter without pain between respectful sighs
With you I feel connected like a friendship form of lovers
Not lovers of the flesh, but lovers like no other
A lover of the soul… A sister without the blood
A heart without expense, and rain without the mud
I am glad to be graced with the time we share
Friendships come and go, but for this one I care
Let it stay forever, because forever I’ll be in need
Of all the care you aid to me, and with you I seem to be free.

With Twisted Tongue

I admit that I laugh when my husband confuses himself. He frequently trips over his tongue when trying to make jokes. He has admitted the reason this happens is due to over-thinking what he will say. He also reports that he gives himself pep-talks telling himself not to say the wrong things. This leads him to make these mix ups, especially when one option is potentially insulting. I have lost count of the times he has choked on his own foot. At these times he spits a tornado of apologies and blushes profusely.

A couple nights ago he had a blip though it was not really insulting at all. This one stood out amongst the rest.

We were discussing our beta fish, Marely, and his mad bubble-making skills. Erik was talking about how our Marely became upset when he accidentally popped the “bubble nest” that betas make when they are happy and ready to “nest” while refilling the tank with water.

Erik was getting tired and it showed. He he started his comment with “It makes me funny…”

I cut him off, “It makes you funny, huh?”

“No!” he declared angrily and then began again, “It makes me funny when Marley shows how angry he really is ”

“Do mean that it makes you laugh, or that you find it funny?” I asked, because yes, I am that much of a smart aleck.

He was thrown off. He didn’t even notice that he had even made the mistake the first time; let ALONE the second. The blushing began, and he admitted that he must have crossed them. He cursed the way his mind processes language. I, on the other hand, told him how much I loved him.

“The best part is, Erik, that you corrected me by saying the same thing again! And in the long run, it really DOES make you funny to me,” I giggled.

He grinned profusely.

It reminded me of a crisscross that one of my aunts made growing up. She stated a fabulous combo “crack my butt off“. She must have really been cracking up, and in the end we all were laughing our butts off.
