(Husband) Daisy meets Goose II

Daisy makes a couple jokes.  "What is this in my hand?" 


"An invisible cabbage" 

"Oh" (confused look) That response did not deter her.

"How do you catch a rabbit"


"Hide in the bushes and make carrot sounds"  I surprised myself (and perhaps her) and laughed. 

"What a cute girl" I thought.  We went out to play basketball.  I'm 6 foot 3 inches and she is about 2 inches taller than a midget.  She used soccer moves (cheating moves) to block me out from rebounding the ball.

I thought, "This girl is annoying me, but I kinda like it"

A month later it looks as if Daisy wants a piece of Goose.  I said something along the lines of, "I would still like to see other people"

"So I can see other people too"

"I guess so"

"OK"  That response did not sit well with me.  Too agreeable.  I then remembered she had a mandatory study hall with other athletes as part of her requirement to the University.  I pictured guys who had chiseled chests and abs who would like nothing more than to pluck my Daisy.  After thinking a few more seconds about chiseled male abs than I ought I began to reconsider the proposal I had made moments earlier. 

"Well (sigh), maybe we can try to be exclusive for a while".

Three states, six moves, two kids, and 12 years later we are still together.  We re up our marriage commitment every five years so I know we have at least 3 years more.
