Counseling-Session One- Are You Kidding Me?

Long, long ago in a place
of newly wedded bliss years
when we still looked like this
we found a group through church
that offered 
COUPLES COUNSELING.
(internet image)
We were doing okay but thought
-what could it hurt-

Session One:
We start out with FIVE couples.

We go around the room and everyone
says 2 things they LIKE about their spouse.
MyHero: #1- Well, she is even-tempered-always the same
no big ups and downs.
#2- She has a great sense of humor.
Good-good- says Lila, the counselor.
Next we go around the room  and everyone
says 1 thing that "bothers" them about their spouse.
MyHero:  She thinks everything is funny.
(I stated laughing and could not stop-
matter of fact I am laughing as I type this)
Lila:  Isn't that a direct contradiction?
You said she has a great 
sense of humor and now you say 
she thinks everything is funny?
(I am still laughing out loud as she is talking)
MyHero-spluttering:  No! No!  In HER CASE
it is NOT a contradiction.
It went downhill from there.
Pop back by tomorrow for
Session Two

(I am away all day but will check in tonight and try to catch up)

I guess he needs to learn to laugh along with you. Laughter is supposed to be good for the soul!

Jettie said...

Maybe he needed more counseling, because you are funny, and laughter is good.

You guys are adorable! When we were newlyweds, we used to play the newlywed game at parties with our friends. Those were the kinds of questions we asked. I didn't know we were doing marriage counseling!

Once I really start laughing, it is hard to stop! I crack up at commercials...like the hot flash one that is out now. That is worth a good 5 minute chuckle to me!

Counseling when you don't need it? If it ain't fixed, don't break it.... Lol

Daniela @Frugal Aint Cheap said...

It seems that the things we find attractive while dating, are the same things that rub us the wrong way when married...go figure that one :)

Tete said...

I wonder what she would think of sweetcheeks? LOL
Can't wait for the next session.

Beautiful couple. I can so see you laughing. Can't wait to hear more.
Home, exhausted after a long day in the air and at the airports.

Lucille said...

Diana, you were such a beautiful bride and your husband looks so handsome on the photo. I laughed so much when I read what you wrote about when you started to laugh. I can't wait for part two.

Cindy @ Dwellings-The Heart of Your Home said...

Karen Mary Butterfly said...

I wish I had been in that group. I haven't heard part 2 yet, but I have a feeling the other couples still remember you!!
Karen

Daniella said...

You didn't tell us what 2 things you said about him, and the 1 thing you said about him!! I can only imagine what would have come out of your mouth!! You would have no problem speaking up, but did you chicken out about him? I can see you like this:
"I don't know, he is cute and nice but he leaves his socks on the floor".
xxD

Debbie @ MeandMyDIY said...

I LOVE that picture of the two of you....so sweet! And I'm laughing (again) at this post. It's nice to see you haven't changed over the years. Obviously, you still think everything is funny, because you share it with us, and it's always HILARIOUS through your eyes! Can't wait to read session 2!

Debbie
