|Because I don't have the pic of me holding his foot.|
The other night my husband had a shooting pain in his skull and immediately became pale and clammy. I took him to the emergency room. The nurses then proceeded to scare the living shit out of us by acting like he was having a heart attack. Their machine was being a little wonky. After a frightening eternity waiting in the exam room, we discovered he'd had an abscess under his tooth which had burst. We have him on antibiotics and pain killers and are seeking out a dentist.
Anyway, the point of this post is that I noticed we did some pretty quirky things during the emergency that made our love obvious.
The stupid bed and chairs were placed in such a way that I was unable to hold his hand, or stroke his hair. So, I clung to his foot and spent the whole time rubbing my thumb over his shoe even though it had a big hole in the bottom and stank like hell because he'd been sweating buckets.
When my husband was asked to relate his symptoms, he took great pains to make sure he always said "nauseated" instead of "nauseous" and looked at me every time to make sure he was grammatically correct. At home, he goes out of his way to abuse grammar on purpose just to annoy me. I guess that's what you do when you're married to a writer.
Anyway, people do ridiculous things when they're in love and now that I know my husband's okay, I guess it's kinda cute.
What quirky things have you done, seen, or read that proves two people are in love?
