A couple of Things ... Okay, One Thing, But It's about Couples

kittytech got this from shazza59, and thought it
would be fun if I tried filling it out, too. This is more for couples
who are married or at least shacking up, but it was still a fun meme.

? What are your middle names?
See birth certificates. Find those, you'll get your answer.

? How long have you been together?
Since about 12:30 PM on August 15th, 2007.

? How long did you know each other before you started dating?
We knew who each other was for several years before, had read each
other's stuff, but we actually talked for the first time about a week
and a half before we started dating.

? Who asked who out?
She did. I had made a vow, after someone got angry at me once for asking
her out, that I would never be the first to ask again.

? Whose siblings do you see the most?
I've never met hers, she has met all of mine. Any questions?

? Do you have any children together?
Together? As in Siamese? No. Oh, you mean do we as a couple have any
children? That's different, then. Uh, no.

? What about pets?
What about them? Oh. Uh, no.

? Did you go to the same school?
I went to the same school more than once, yes, and she went to the same
school more than once, yes, but I have never set foot in a school in
which she has set foot, which is what I think the question means.

? Who is the most sensitive?
I am.

? Where do you eat out most as a couple?
Red Lobster is the most significant place, Smitty's is the most
frequent place.

? Where is the furthest you two have traveled together as a couple?
Altona. That's where my mom lives.

? Who has the worst temper?
I hate to admit it, but I do.

? Who does the cooking?
We decided we prefer edible food, so she does when we're together.

? Who is more social?
By most standards, she is.

? Who is the neat freak?
I'll have to research the answer to that one, but my library's too messy
and so is hers.

? Who is the most stubborn?
I think it evens out. We both have our stubborn moments.

? Who hogs the bed?
Ask me again a few years after marriage.

? Who wakes up earlier?
I typically do, though on Saturday mornings I like a nice long nap,

? Where was your first date?
The Olive Garden in Milwaukee. Mmmmmm, bread sticks.

? Who has the bigger family?
I might, but it's hard to say.

? Do you get flowers often?
I never get flowers. Which is fine with me.

? Who eats more?
I do.

? Who sings better?
It's equal. My pitch is off since my hearing has gotten worse.

? Who does the laundry?
She has very kindly done it when we've been together. Other times, we do
our own.

? Who's better with the computer?
She is. I'm no slouch with the computer, but she has more computer
skills than I do.

? Who drives when you are together?
Neither. We don't golf.

? Who picks where you go to dinner?
Mutual consent.

? Who is the first one to admit when they're wrong?
I've been wrong far more often than she has. It's a tough one to answer.

? Who has more tattoos?
Mathematicians out there, which is greater: zero or zero? There's your

? Who eats more sweets?
I think she does. She eats more of the sweet stuff, I eat more chips and
so on.

? Who cries more?
Me, when the Bombers are losing.
