This month, AD and I will be celebrating our ten year wedding anniversary.
And dear brides, there are just some things about a guy that you can’t know going into a marriage. I plan to do a whole series on those things as a public service to brides everywhere, but today, I’ll give you just one.
For example, AD has a grad degree and some work towards a post grad degree and he also holds multiple US patents for technology. I tell you all that so that you’ll know that not only is he super hot, but he’s super smart. Yet? Cannot figure out recycling. This, I did not know going into this marriage.
Trash and recycyling are not the same thing and therefore do not go in the same bin. Trash goes in the trash can and recycleables do not go in the trash can. Likewise, recycleables go in the recycle bin and trash does not go in the recycle bin. Trash = trash can. Recycleable = recycle bin. And never the twain shall meet.
Perhaps because I am not burdened with a Y chromosome, I get this. I would NEVER put a non-recycleable item in the recycle bin. I would not be able to sleep. Furthermore, I know that the recycle trucks come on Thursday morning, just has they have every Thursday morning for the past ten years. For me, recyclling is not complicated. Tax law is complicated.
What AD did not know about me going into this marriage is that I would be so uptight about the recycling.
