I’m writing you this morning because I have a little confession to share. Ready for this one? I snooped through your phone last night while you were sleeping. In my defense, I wasn’t looking for anything to pick a fight over. I was just bored and awake and it was just sitting there calling out to me. (I actually opened it see if you had any good games.) I doubt you’ll be upset because as you know I rarely do that and you’ve always made a point of saying we keep no secrets in our house so all possessions are fair game. But I felt the need to confess just in case since honesty is our best policy. If it’s any consolation, I’m actually kind of glad I looked because I really smiled at what I found.
Almost every picture in your phone gallery was of me, or The Dog, or the three of us together. You even have some pictures in there that I hate but for some reason you just love. I also noticed that you save almost every text message I send you, even the not so special or bitchy ones. I even saw a text where you told your friend you “may” want to get together but you want to be sure and “check with the wife first” to make sure we don’t have plans you forgot about. So sweet, honey!
In that moment I learned that you can tell a whole lot about a man from his cell phone. Yours told me that your family is so important to you that you keep photographic reminders to look at in your phone. It told me that even when no one’s checking you’re always respectful of your wife. It told me that you don’t have time to read everything other people send to you but you never miss one of my messages. It even told me that you like this blog, because I saw that you’ve been telling people about it and asking them to vote for you in polls. (Hahaha – cheater!)
So there you have it. Feel free to peruse through mine next time you see I’ve left it in the kitchen. If you do, you’ll probably learn that I’m obsessed with pictures of you smiling or sleeping, you’re one of like three people I actually text or call back immediately, and I’m so determined for us to succeed I have his-and-her goal reminders in my phone. Okay, bye for now. Hope you have a wonderful and peaceful day. I love you!
