Just a couple conversations I had with Mike the other day:
Mike: If you could have any job in the world, what would it be??
Me: I consider the question thoughtfully for a few minutes and then respond, "a cupcake decorator!!"
Mike: (just staring at me.......)
Mike: Seriously?.......(long silence) Out of all the million dollar jobs you could have, you would put frosting on cake?????
Mike: You're wierd.
I couldn't argue. But obviously my husband has never experienced the joy that comes from making these cute (and wonderfully edible) creations. :)
Mike was doing his usual complaining about medical school (oh...its so hard....oh....we don't have any money.....) I hear this on a nearly daily basis, so I am no longer sympathetic. Anyway, we were talking about what we *could* have done in college, rather than what we did.
Mike: If I could do it again, I would go into Pharmacy school. I would be finished by now, you know.
Me: yeah....I know.
Mike: Actually, I should have gone to Utah State instead of Weber. I had a scholarship there you know.
Me: Yes, I know. But then you wouldn't have met me. (batting my eyes wildly)
Mike: ................( says nothing)
Mike: Yeah.....I should have gone to Utah State.
( he later insisted that wasn't what he meant. That he WOULD have found me......somehow.) It's alright. We laughed. and he did feel a little bad, so I got a nice back rub out of it. :)
