It's probably a good thing no one told me that marriage would be hanging out with your best-est of best friends, singing along to Tenacious D's "Tribute" in the car, developing an extensive repertoire of movie quotes and dumb-but-hilarious in-jokes, and sometimes laughing at each other until tears run down your face. If they had, I probably would've done a lot more pining back when I was single.
Of course, it's probably also a good thing that no one ever told me I would one day have the following discussion with my beloved:
MB: Holy shit! Look at my toenails!
VBG: *hopes she misheard*
MB: Look at them!
VBG: *tries not to look*
MB: *presents foot* Look! They're so long!
MB: No, it's cool! *reverently inspects grody toenails*
VBG: EWAH!! I can't believe you're showing me your toenails!
MB: They're so long! And pointy!
VBG: *throws up a little* Go cut them!
MB: No...*eyes glaze over slightly* They're so cool...
Cuz they're fast!
