The couple who....

I've always heard that the more you have in common with your significant other, the more likely you are to stay together. You've all heard the sayings...

'The couple who plays together, stays together.'

'The couple who snorts crack together, stays together.' Or...whatever the saying is.

You know the sayings...we've all heard them.

And the one I am addressing today?

'The couple who exercises together, stays together.'

I was driving down the road and I saw a cute couple, in their golden years, walking in the morning sun. And I thought, I guess it's true what they say. The couple who exercises together, stays together. And then I saw that they stopped and since my windows were rolled down I also heard them yelling at one another. I could only catch yelling and then I heard the husband say, "FINE, see you at home!" He then crossed the street and proceeded with his morning walk. She stayed on the opposite side of the street from him.... and they continued to walk at about the same pace and heading in the same direction...but on different sides of the road.

And I can't help but think that this fight wouldn't have happened if they had just stayed at home in the first place.

Moral of the story: stay home, don't exercise.

"The couple who has outside interests and hobbies stay together instead of yelling at one another on a morning run."

Learn from this couple in their golden years...quit exercising now. It could save your marriage.

Let's fill in the scenario: They were walking together when she noticed that her shoelace was untied. She bends over to tie it, and then he lets one rip. She says to him, "Bob, You ass! You knew I was bending over to tie my shoe. You did that on purpose. And my mouth was open!"
"What? I didn't do it!"
"Yes you did! You always do that! Did I mention My MOUTH WAS OPEN! I got a mouth full of ASS PIE!"
"I told you, I DIDN'T DO IT!!!"
"You're an old fart, Bob; you probably forgot by now!"

"FINE". . . And the rest you heard.

What do you think? Do you think that's how it played out?

Rinnie- I'm starting to think YOU were the old's frightening how accurate that probably is... :)

Is it that obvious? ;)

well, let see, I learned never to walk with an old man. I think that about says it all.

I used to think it was fun to walk with an old man, Lonna, and you will too in a few more years!
Lisa, I'm sorry you had to view such a tramatizing event!

Halfway through your entry, I was ready to find a "special someone" and go jogging. Thankfully your blog talked me out of it.

Thanks for saving me from years of health and happiness. Now I'll forever be alone, sick, and miserable like all the cool people.
