    Until I met my Husband:

    ~ I didn’t know wine came in a box
    ~ I had never ever hit the snooze button
    ~ I had always lived alone, except as a child
    ~ I had never shopped at Abercrombie & Fitch. (We no longer do, that phase is over)
    ~ I’d never been to a Karoke bar.

    More to follow, when I think of them. Now you. Go.

    Until I met your husband--

    I never knew what it meant to shout out "Crimthann" during a particularly intense orgasm.

    I just had to do that--here's a smiley for ya to patch things up-- :)

    looks like this is meant to be light hearted...perhaps mine will be in a day or so, but being that I'm in a more serious mood today, I'll type:

    "Until I met my (insert relationship) AND EVERYTHING BLEW UP MY MY FACE..."

    * I didn't know I was good enough as is.

    * That I had a whole heck of a lot more to offer than I realized.

    * That it was/is okay to walk away.

    Ash, you'd have to know how to pronounce it first.

    I believe it's pronounced "Oh...oh...omigod...omigod...crimhthannniadhnairmaclughaidhaaaaaaaaaaaahhh!!!" or somehting like that. I didn't quite catch all of it. :)

    Until I divorced my husband:

    - Everything I knew was wrong.
    - Every ambition I had was stupid.
    - Every talent I had was a waste of time.
    - Every opinion I had lacked importance.
    - I was less important than everyone else.
    - Saving money was a needless waste.
    - Wanting to have a child was ridiculous.
    - Going out dancing was for kids.
    - Working out was for the vain.
    - My friends were less important than his.
    - I had no taste.

    Oh, sorry, wrong direction.

    Though far poorer now, I'm so much happier.

    Just like kissing those frog , before I meet my prince. I guess I have to keep doing one nite stand, cruising gay club, sex for money scene, having empty and meaningless sex. At 41 I am just getting a little bit tired with all this scene. But what can I do, when the body keep asking you cannt wait for this guy (whoever he is )to come .

    Ok, I'll try to get this back to Crimthann's intent:

    ~ Prefab meals were the only way to go

    ~ Water around the sink in the bathroom seemed normal (little did I know)

    ~ I had never laughed so much at so much silliness.

    ~ I always had to push myself - he's perfectly willing to do it for me

    ~ I didn't know there was someone else in the world with as much disdain for the human race as me!

    Before I met my husband:

    - I always paired my socks
    - I hated Withnail and I
    - Alan Alda filled me with murderous rage

    Before I met my husband:

    1. I thought potato salad was a salad.

    2. I never hit the snooze button.

    3. I never washed so many dishes!(He does most of the cooking)

    4. I didn't know how much I enjoyed martinis.

    5. I never thought I'd drink non fat milk.

    6. I never knew living with someone could be so easy.

    7. I didn't relaize being loved unconditionally was possible.

    Until I met my husband:

    I didn't realize it was a federal crime to walk on a carpet that was just vacumed because you will mess up the lines that lets anyone who might see know that you just vacumed.

    (hes a wee bit OCD)

    *speaking of OCD, I was hoping to hear from OW on this topic, but I guess not :(

    ROFL!!! Or that you aren't even supposed to walk on it with shoes still on.

    Yeah, well, OCD is the magic word.

    Until I met my partner:

    I didn't know cat food should be alphabetized

    I didn't have a young faith healer visiting my house daily to repair minor things and offer, repeatedly, to heal my knees in the name of Jesus our lord amen.

    I'd never seen someone bail a contractor out of jail for drunk driving, then impersonate the drunk at his initial court hearing (to which the drunk didn't come) in order to get back the $5,000 bail bond.

    I'd never met anyone who watches the Weather Channel with the intensity of interest normally given the final inning of a tied World Series game.

    I'd never met anyone who planted dozens and dozens of dahlias in large clay pots mounted on wheels so they could be moved to follow the sun's path every hour.

    I'd never met anyone who spoke four languages fluently and whose bedside reading was a catalog of kanji characters.

    I'd never seen anyone dial up a shop owner in Paris on a Sunday to come sell him a piece of lapis-colored bathroom tile because he liked the color so much and willingly paid $100 for what normally sold for $5.

    I'd never seen a man impersonate Nancy Reagan on Halloween, dragging Ronald's coffin behind her.

    I'd never seen someone get a perfect score on the med school entrance exam, get awarded a grant by Harvard to learn how to quantify human pain and suffering and receive a fellowship to study French literature at the Sorbonne.

    I'll stop here.

    Ah well, I got a few responses out of this. As always, OW made me smile and cringe in fear at the same time.

    Until I met my partner I was destined for a short, turbulent, pain filled life of drugs, alcohol and disease.

    Until I met my Husband:

    ~ I didn't know that I had a nice smile
    ~ I didn't know much about myself
    ~ I didn't know that I was someone important
    ~ I didn't know that was a good cook
    ~ I didn't know that I could have a relationship that works.

    That's it for now :-)
