It's funny that a few days ago I ran a thought by my friend Richie. He liked it so much that he did a rendition of it on his blog too, today is my turn.

Being married is so different than just dating some one when it comes to the word mine. In a boy friend/girl friend relationship, you both know what belongs to each individual, in marriage though it is different.

There are the obvious ones, my/his underwear, clothes, shoes, toothbrush... My/his wallet, makeup, hair supplies. ( No he doesn't wear make up) Then the blurry line ones, keys, car, tools, pen for heavens sake.  These are the ones, for some unknown reason, that bother me.

Just because it's a dish, doesn't mean it's mine, just because it's a tool doesn't mean it's his, yet even after five years we still have that MINE thing in our brains. I do my best not to say it, but it still slips out now and then. He slips up a lot too, but why does it bother me so much when it doesn't seem to affect him at all. ( Go figure)

Just a shorty for today, a ponder, if you will.
Time for today's Prompt tease.. RICTAMETER

  1. Your thoughts are so to the point I am green with envy.

  2. I just noticed, you named a rose susan?

  3. The roses are named after the people we got them from.

  4. Whats yours is mine, & whats mines my own LOL!!!

    I slip up all the time with the "Mine" phrase...
    It's like a recording in my head from childhood when we had our (my)toys. :)
