How I Know I’ll Be Married A Long Time

It’s not secret that two things that real­ly pull on my wife’s heart strings are pup­py dogs and lit­tle, gray-haired old men. Then there’s pup­py dogs who resem­ble lit­tle, gray haired old men (as in these). She can bare­ly stand to look at them with­out run­ning the risk of get­ting emo­tion­al.

How­ev­er, it’s the fact that she can get teary eyed at the death of a dig­i­tal­ly ani­mat­ed lizard on a sci­ence fic­tion tele­vi­sion show that wins me over. I mean, who can’t love a woman who tru­ly empathizes with a C.G. mon­ster that is killed on tele­vi­sion? That’s just one rea­son why I know we’ll be marred for a long time.

Update 12/1/2005 — Appar­ent­ly, Angela isn’t the only one who felt a spe­cial con­nec­tion to Nim­rod. Thanks, Dooce.
