A Meme from Lilli

Now you all know I can't pass up a good meme. I don't get to post my stories here much anymore, but I can keep up a little this way.

Who’s the oldest?
I’m older than Tom by three and a half years. I’ve been embarrassed about this most of our married life, but it’s true.

Who was interested first?
I’d have to say Tom, because I didn’t see him the first time he saw me. But the next weekend, when I saw him I knew I wanted him!

Same high school?
No

Most sensitive?
Probably me, but Tom is a sensitive soul too.

Worse temper?
Tom is the soul of patients, so I guess I’d have to say me – but I don’t really think I have a temper, I just get annoyed at times.

More social?
We’re both very social, but I probably win out by a bit.
                                                   
More stubborn?
Tom! Definitely Tom on this one!

Wakes up first?
Always Tom.

Bigger family?
Me, I had one brother. Never really considered him family, but Tom had no siblings.

Flowers?
Yes! I love them and Tom sends them fairly often.

Cooks the most?
Well I can tell you it’s certainly not me! Tom and Lily share cooking duties.

Cries more?
That would be me. I’ve seem Tom cry very few time in our marriage.

Better singer?
Tom, he has a beautiful voice.

Said I love you first?
It was Tom and I didn’t believe him for a minute. I wasn’t sure back then that true love existed. He has since convinced me that it exists indeed.

Better driver?
I am a perfectly fine driver, but I’ll give this one to Tom.

Hogs the remote?
Neither, but Tom usually has it if we watch TV together.

Clothes and shoe hoarder?

Neither. I have the most clothes and shoes, but I’m not a hoarder – I give away outfits and shoes when I grow tired of them.
