We needed a laugh and I needed a blog post. So today, we’re playing the not-ly wed game. It’s like the Newlywed Game but we’re not wed. Get it? Really it’s a “how well do we know each other” game or a “here are some funny answers to some awkward questions” game. Enjoy.
How long have you been dating?
Correct all around. Yup yup, official for two and a half years.
What movie character would Nadine leave N for?
Duh, he’s the chosen one. Please note the wall behind us. Sure, for a “movie character” this would be correct, but fictional character, it’d be Dr. Who. I couldn’t resist the wibbly wobbly timey wimey stuff.
What is N’s most irritating habit?
Oh the throat clearing. You have no idea. On the bright side, I can find him in any store because I can hear him coming from aisles away. I also thought he might say picking at his beard, which is also pretty annoying.
Our love story is so classy. Moving on.
How many button downs are in N’s closet?
Actual number: 72. 72! And that does not include the ones in the laundry. Out. Of. Control.
Describe Nadine on a bad day. (His comment on this..”is this a trap? this feels like a trap.”)
He’s too respectful to call me bitchy, but we both knew he was thinking it. The word difficult when used like this makes me think of this scene from When Harry Met Sally (skip to 1:42).
Sally: “I’m difficult.”
Harry: “You’re challenging.”
Sally: “I’m too structured. I’m completely closed off.”
Harry: “But in a good way.”
Favorite movie of all time. Got a little sidetracked there. Back to the important questions…
Who does Archie like better?
Whoever has food is the correct answer. But he does worship N. Why? I’m home way more often! I should be his favorite.
Who is the better driver?
I can’t even begin to tell you how much this is definitely ME. It’s ME. Just trust me on that one.
Name of the other persons best friend.
Correct and correct. Impressed that he spelled Kaylin right.
Where are most of your partners clothes from?
I would have said Target or Goodwill for me but H&M is a solid answer. 10 points to Gryffindor! Kohl’s is definitely to blame for most of the 73 button downs.
Who is the better “catch”?
It’s him. Mushy.
Dedicate a song to the other person.
If this isn’t a perfect picture of the difference between men and women, then I don’t know what is. But it’s weird that we both picked songs with the word “lucky” in them. Listen to “The Luckiest”. It’s the sweetest song.
This made us laugh. And we really needed that.
