Have you ever seen or heard something that you totally wouldn't have believed if you read it in a book? I was just telling someone the other day about the day Slayer proposed. He'd bought a bottle of sparkly and a couple of nice glasses, and we toasted each other, and it was all romantic-like. And then I was so flustered by the whole thing that I tried to put the glass down halfway off the table. Naturally, it fell over and broke.
Now, one of the things I love about Slayer is that he doesn't hesitate to give me a hard time, and he takes it as good as he gives. So he's washing up the one remaining glass, and he starts talking smack.
"Well, at least we have ONE glass left."
At that EXACT moment, the base of the glass falls off. PLUNK! Right into the sink. He didn't hit it on anything. He didn't move it. It just FELL OFF BY ITSELF.
Now, the scientist in me says there must have been a flaw in the glass, and that combined with the abrupt change in temperature--aw, heck with that. It was the Universe screwing with my husband to be. And to this day, one of us can look at the other and say, "Well, at least we have ONE glass left," and crack each other up.
So have you ever had one of these I-wouldn't-believe-it-in-a-book moments? I want to hear about it!
