coffee talk installment 13

coffee talk time.
this week's topic: your relationshit.  i mean - relationSHIP.
linking up with natalie.

1. how did you meet your partner?
would you believe me if i told you that we met on the swing set?
because we totally did.  at his aunt's house - who was my neighbor.  and i refused to believe that he was a year older than me because we were the same height.
as if, shitler.
we went to the same church but different high schools.  he decided to take a class at my high school so we totally hung out in the hallways during lunch.  because we're basically the coolest.
that's a lie.  we weren't.
then we went to almost every high school dance together.  and i worked at hallmark and he worked at true value.  and sometimes he would pick me up after work and we would hang out at my parent's house where my dad would come into the room like seventeen times for various, bullshit reasons (like making sure shitler wasn't getting handsy) and i gave him presents like nelly's album "country grammar" and he gave me over-sized TY beanie baby bears (which i suspect he got at my place of employment).
2. how did you feel about your partner when you first met them?
that he was easily the loudest and most obnoxious person i have ever met.
like he was the guy that dressed up in the women's cheer leading outfit for homecoming week.
BACK OFF LADIES - he's mine.

3. where was your first date?
don't judge us.
it was at an arby's.
and shitler's grandma was there.
but how can you even say "no" to the arby's sauce?

4. where do you see ya'll in five years?
for those that don't know - shitler popped the question back in september.
oh, and i said "yes."
so at least married.  hopefully.
it did take us twelve years to get to the engagement. 
so all bets are off on the actual marriage.
kidding.  kind of.

5. show a picture of you and your partner.

and there you have it.
the tale of shitler and shannon.
