We Don’t Do Valentines

Our friend Beefy posted this little thing on Facebook the other day, and my reply was, “This looks like a great way for The Mister and I to bicker with one another for 10-20 minutes! How romantic!”

In honor of Valentine’s Day, all couples: Make this your status for fun and answer honestly.

Who’s older?
Apparently he was in a big, fat hurry to get here and I played hard to get

Who was interested first?
Me, but then him and then me and then him, and well, that went on sometimes not at all and also for over a decade

How long have you been together? 
Depends on when you start counting, we’re gonna go with November 98

Happily, even

More sarcastic? 
Right, he’s more sarcastic

Who makes the most mess? 
We’re not messy, but he says me, cause cooking, and I say him, cause van

Who has more tattoos? 
Not a single tattoo between us

Better singer? 
I can sing, but he can SING

Hogs the remote?
I’m in charge of the bedroom remote and THAT’S THAT

Better driver? 
That’s right, ME, and I don’t even have a penis

Spends the most?
Without my spending, we would all wear old fatigues, sleep on piles of out-of-circulation Runner’s World magazines, and eat only when offered food or whatever. So yes, All The Spending Are Belong To Me.

“Who’s smarter?”
The Mister looked up at the ceiling, “It depends,” he said.
I said, “I am, because I don’t have to think about it.”

Most common sense?
He says he has more common sense because I think on a higher level. I think that’s poetry. *swoon*

What are your middle names? 
Michael and Allen
And a whole buncha people just went OH!

Whose siblings do you see most often?
His sibling, cause I don’t have any

Do you have any children together?
We also have children apart, because when you have children ONE TIME, you have them forever, no matter where they go

Did you go to the same school? 
Yes, for one year

Who is the most sensitive? 
He says him. According to Moo, I am the kind of sensitive for when they’re sick and he’s the kind of sensitive that gets butt-hurt.

Where do you eat out most as a couple? 
Los Rancheros
They have quesoeverything there

Where is the farthest you two have traveled together? 
We had to think about that one for awhile, but yes, we’re sure

Who has the worst temper? 
The girls didn’t think so, but he and I both know it’s me

Who does the cooking?
We love that.

Who is more social?
He makes all the friends

Who is the neat freak?
Neither of us, no matter what they say

Who is the most stubborn? 
Neither of us

Who hogs the bed? 
“I do not hog the bed!”
“Right. Sassy, how often do you hear Daddy tell me to PLEASE GO BACK TO MY OWN SIDE OF THE BED?”
“Never. And I’ve never heard him tell you to roll over, either.”
He does sometimes hog the bed

Who wakes up earlier? 
My waking up first is a bad omen

Where was your first date?
St. Elmos, on our wedding night

Who has the bigger family? 
I have a large family, but good gravy!

Do you get flowers often? 
I do!
I got flowers yesterday, because we are both sick. That’s fair, yeah?

Who does the laundry?
I’m the only one who can hear the laundry calling

Who’s better with the computers?
I know, right?

Who drives when you are together?
99.9% Him

Who picks where you go to dinner?



We did bicker a bit, but we mostly agreed. Celebrate love EVERY day, y’all!

    So many questions. So many great answers. However: “Where was your first date?
    St. Elmos, on our wedding night” confuses me. Did you not date prior to your wedding? Not that there’s anything wrong with that…

  11. Love that, Joey! My husband told me when we met that we would never celebrate Valentine’s Day because it was Valentine’s Day every day for him now that he knew me. I know…
    With our kids, born in the US, it was hard to not celebrate at least a little.
    This year with no kids home my husband will cook us a nice dinner (we are the other way than your couple) and I will prepare the dessert.
    Sending love from my home to yours.

    Aw, SO SWEET!!! Charlie and I never do Valentine’s Day. Well, I went to the grocery alone, because he was doing something (we usually go together), so I looked for something ‘pecial for him. But I couldn’t find kipper snacks and he’s tired of Limburger cheese, so I got some jowl bacon and cooked some for lunch. Is that romantic, or what?

  16. So the youngest just looked at me and said, “You look happy.” See what you did? You made me happy. But I do have a question…. your first date was your wedding day? Please clarify.

    Sweet! Happy V-day! Mine didn’t go so well. I didn’t connect the mixer properly and so potential chocolate pot du creme wound up all over the kitchen. I’ve been cleaning chocolate off cabinets for hours!

    OK, the judges need some clarification on this one: your FIRST DATE was also your wedding night?? How the heck did you swing that one, what with the decade-dance of back-and-forthing flirtation?!

    Love!! … especially your answer to who’s smarter 😀 Brilliant comeback! You two are adorable ❤

    I don't dare do this with Gilles. I'm pretty sure our responses to a couple of those questions would be highly contentious 😉

  23. You are smarter…because you didn’t have to think about it…love that one ! Great pics. Like most holidays, we dine in…hate the crowds. But, there were flowers, chocolate (in the form of brownies this time ) ☺
