Mars vs Venus

I like to wake up early, he doesn't.

I love eggs, he's allergic to them.

I like planning, making lists, he doesn't know what it means.

I keep my money neatly lined in my purse, his money is all over his pockets.

I like the cars parked aligned to the pillars in front, he thinks the pillars are crooked.

When something falls on the floor I pick it up, while he walks over it.

I think the TV is already too big, he thinks it's too small.

When I check out sales at the mall, his feet ache and he urgently needs to use the loo.

When we reach the BOSE showroom, he stands there rooted with healthy feet.

I point out dirt on white fans and cobwebs to clean, he thinks it's the original design and looks good.

He hates exercising, I cannot do without it.

He thinks socks are disposable wear-and-throws, I argue they aren't.

I like dry flowers and keep buying them, he hates them and throws them out.

He laps up compliments. I am very wary of them.

I love adventure sports, anything heartstopping, blood-rushing; he doesn't go near anything where he has to sign that life-indemnity-or-whatever bond.

He thinks pretty women make interesting conversations, I do not particularly agree.

He doesn't notice books missing from the shelf, I notice and get livid.

I love spicy food. He can't handle it.

I remember every button on his every shirt. He doesn't recognize too many of my clothes.

I track transactions in my bank account closely. My darling doesn't notice damage and depletion in his account, due to usage of debit card by me. THIS I LIKE.

Lol couldn't agree more with you on that last as Ogden Nash so aptly puts it

'Marriage is the alliance of two people, one of whom never remembers birthdays and the other who never forgets'

jo: Welcome and thanks.

dreamcatcher: Killer? It's a winner :)

manoj: Different yet something binds and holds. That's probably the reason why he doesn't notice.

mellowdrama: Thanks for agreeing. Fortunately, both of us remember birthdays as of now. Either we are too young or too newly married ;)

prerona: Common really? I feel good hearing that. Yes, the last point and a few others stops me from giving him in for exchange :)

I could have sworn that I left a comment here yesterday. Oh well. With my memory I can never be sure.

shub: I guess, since I handle the rest so well, I get my reward too.

getting there: Dont worry, happens with me all the time. I go back to posts and find my comment missing and wonder if it's been deleted by someone.
