Things They Don't Tell You About Being Married

Tuesday, August 28, 2012


As it turns out, car rides can be some of the most fun times in your marriage. Take our wedding day for example. After our ceremony on our way to the hotel before the reception (ahem)... Karl and I were just giddy. We had the Katy Perry CD in and blasted it, all the while singing a long. That's right. Both of us. Tonight we made a little half hour trek in the car and we listened to "Call Me Maybe" (3 times), "We Are Never Getting Back Together," and "Payphone" (3 times). We danced and sang in the car. My almost 28 year old husband sang We Are Never Getting Back Together like a pro. It was one of the proudest moments of my life.

Karl and I also like to change the words to songs if we're feeling particularly silly/improv inclined. Tonight we changed the lyrics of "Kiss Me" to reflect the plot of She's All That. It went something like 

"Change me,
So I can be so cool
Don't let
That hacky sack hit the floor"

And so on. We're pretty loose about making the syllables fit. So ya. There it is for you. Men actually do like pop songs and very often can sing the words better than you can. Now you know.
