Thursday Thirteen #37-The Mrs Duck One


Thirteen Great ThingsAbout Mrs Duck


So, this weekend is our Anniversary weekend, where all the stars aligned and Mrs Duck and I became husband and wife. So, for the list I thought I would give some great things about my wife, beyond the fact that she puts up with me every day.

On a quick side note, The Duck Family will be exposed here tomorrow, so if you wanted to see us without our feathers, even if its only briefly, then be sure to stop back tomorrow.

1.Mrs Duck has a hot body and knows how to use it. Of course, I am a guy, so this kind of trait would come up early, wouldn't it.

2.Mrs Duck is intelligent and beyond books smarts. You teach her to do something one time, she takes it and runs with it. She always wants to know how something works, as opposed to just nodding your head and listening.

3.She has a job that she does not enjoy, in a organization where sometimes you just end up shaking your head. Yet, she goes to this place everyday and performs to the best of her abilities. She could never just mail it in.

4.She reads more then I do. And her reading list is quite varied, from the chick books of Dorothy Benton Frank to books about the war in Iraq to thrillers by David Baldacci.

5.She likes football and loves her Philadelphia Eagles. I guess everyone needs some sort of albatross in your life.

6.She does not suffer fools and idiots well. But, one of the best things is that she can explain why these people are fools and idiots, as opposed to just yelling at them for no clear reason.

7.She loves her family and would do anything for them. Even though she has nephews that live in the south who we rarely see, she is able to spoil them like they live right down the street.

8.She has an infectious laugh that can be heard all over the house. When you hear it, you can not help but laugh yourself, no matter what mood you are in.

9.She has had a very difficult life, both dealing with physical things as well as plenty of things that have occured that would make a weaker persons head spin. She still has a great attitude in life and wants to be treated just like anyone else.

10.She lets me experiment in the kitchen and tries everything I whip up. She never says its awful and has the patience when I turn a Rachel Ray 30 minute meal into a RR One hour and 20 minute meal.

11.She has the softest sweetest eyes, that she can use to express any kind of emotion necessary. Her looks either make you say "uh oh I am in trouble" or "uh oh, I could be getting lucky" with just the shift of her gaze.

12.She tolerates a nitwit like me. This has to extend ones patience day after day after day and she still comes home and gives me a kiss hello.

13.I love her and thats all that matters to me.

Happy Anniversary Baby.

As for RR...hubby and I took a cooking class as an anniv gift last year. We were being tuahgt by 3 professional chefs and all of them just shook their head at RR as we lamented about how 30 minutes is more like 90 minutes, LOL.

Take care and Happy TT!
