Me: What's your favorite color?
Larry: Right here (points to a lovely shade of blue in a CT scan of the skull of Tutankhamen, in the current issue of Science Illustrated).
Me: Oh yeah, cobalt blue!
L: Why do you want to know?
Me: Catherine posted this husband quiz on her blog.
L: Oh. Well, let me know how I do.
Me: How you do...?
L: On the test.
Me: Oh, it's not a test of you, it's a test of me, to see how well I know you. And other general stuff, like how we met and things like that. Most of which I already answered in my post about our anniversary.
L: Like the fact that I proposed in a swamp.
Me: Hmm. It didn't ask where you proposed. I'll tell her she should add that.
I did know his love for cobalt blue. Really I did. See, he has a lot of favorite colors, depending on the item in question. Orange for cats. Crimson for the BMW Z-4 he wants. In clothing choices, he's been in a charcoal-gray phase for awhile.
The "swamp" is the wetland/tidal marsh we now live next to, though he first mentioned marriage over on the state park side of it, on the marsh walk. I like to call it proposing in a swamp.
Thing I love most about him: His compassion for any person or creature who's hurting.
His favorite music: Depending on the occasion: modern rock; '40's standards; classical trumpet; classical violin; Tchaikovsky.
His favorite food: most soups. Cream of mushroom especially.
A nickname for me? He wouldn't dare!
His age? Yes he will read this, so I wouldn't dare! 8~)
