It's true, you really do keep learning about your spouse the longer you are married to them. Honestly, I figured I had learned just about everything I could about Drew. We have recently been spending LOTS of time together, what both being unemployed and all.
Turns out there are some things I could learn. And where better to learn it than in his own home town, in his own home. One thing is that he knows how to play with those "Magic" cards. Um, I'm sorry, but I thought that was what "nerdy" kids did. Like the kids who went to the mall on Saturday afternoons and dueled with each other. Kevin pulled out some of his cards (that was a shock enough) but then when Drew started asking him questions and then actually volunteered to play with him...I was, to say the least, STARTLED. And slightly amused.
A few weeks ago, I also found out he loves Settlers of Catan. This game is perfectly legit (I think) but only because a lot of people at BYU liked it (including one of my best friends and roommates). Drew hadn't said anything about this game until a few Sundays ago when Kevin and Drew ganged up on me to play. I knew I hated the game. I tried to play once and I wanted to claw my eyes out of boredom. But, being the wonderful wife I am, I agreed. They promised it wouldn't take long. SEVERAL hours later, we were still playing it. To show the seriousness, my dad called on my in laws house phone because he hadn't heard from me all night. THAT is how long and depressing the game was.
Tonight, once again, they tried to rope me in. I successfully fended them off.
What is Drew going to pull out this next week? Or in the weeks to come? I don't even want to try to guess. It might turn out he's a closet Golden Girls fan or something. The surprises never cease.
