Friend-husband likes the shower curtain closed when no one is using it, because he doesn’t think the bathtub is the loveliest part of the bathroom. I like it open because it makes the bathroom seem bigger and I love the extra light from the window. Besides. there is nothing lovely about our plain-jane dollar store shower curtains.
Friend-husband likes things perfectly symmetrical. I prefer things a little a-symmetrical. We had a hanging plant on one side of our doorstep. It looked just right to me. Friend-husband bought another plant so that we could hang one on each side. He likes balance.
I am addicted to clutter. Friend Husband likes things tidy. I admire tidiness, but I can’t seem to manage it. Friend-husband over-prepares. I sometimes throw things together. He fusses over details. I embrace simplicity. I am casual. Friend –husband leans toward the formal side.
Differences are fascinating. I’m glad we’re not the same. I adore Friend-husband and I celebrate our differences.
Except for the shower curtain.
