All By Myself

Although this post is marked Friday, I'm actually writing it on Thursday night. Piercen is in Madison, Wisconsin, so I have the apartment and the evening to myself. I'm going to make a huge plate of sautéed Shitake mushrooms, which I love and he despises (if you read that last statement and think "how can he not like mushrooms?!  They are delicious!," welcome to my world), curl up on the couch with the cats, and watch Harry Potter. And then, since I never quite grew out of being scared of the dark, I'll go to bed with pretty much all the lights on in the apartment. It's going to be a lovely evening; well, except for that last part. That's rather annoying. 


  1. I am shocked to learn that your marriage has endured as long as it has with this vast mushroom/anti-mushroom gap at the center of it. It must be a constant source of tension and dissent!

  2. I know, right?! It just shows you how dedicated we are to our marriage--I try not to put mushrooms in every single meal, and he tries to ignore the fact they show up quite often! Fortuntely, he goes out of town every so often which gives me the opportunity to have counseling sessions with my beloved Shitakes.

  3. That only seems fair. You and the Shitakes should never be TOO long apart!
