He drives me up the wall,
I can annoy him with just a look.
He drives too slow,
I drive too fast!
He is careful with money,
I enjoy spending.
He is slow to criticize,
I am quick to judge.
He is quiet and thoughtful,
I am loud and sarcastic.
He likes to be home early,
I love to stay out late.
He prefers to be in company,
I love to be alone.
He has so much patience,
I have very little.
He does not like to drink,
I enjoy it very much!
Why do we stay together?
I do not ask.
All I know is,
he brings out the best in me,
and makes me laugh every day!
For us that seems to be enough.

Awww! So sweet and romantic. He is a very lucky man…
Ha Ha I’ll tell him! He ll be taken by surprise as I am usually slagging him. I’m enjoying your paddys day posts.
Thanks. I’m trying to stay topical for the weekend. I should probably write something new about Seamus, but he’s not been around much since that horrible hoax broke his heart. What does “slagging” mean in American terms? Is it like “driving him crazy”?
Oh over here it means mocking him in a joking kind of way. I don’t know if you read my post English,as spoken by the Irish if you didn’t you might find some more terms you can use!
I think I read it, but I’ll go back and double check… 🙂
Aww this is so lovely – and boy can I relate!
Thanks. Decided to be nice for a change. Mind you that is not what the post was meant to be it just evolved into it.
He’s a gift
Somedays! Thanks for the visit, and the comment!
My husband and I are very opposite as well. And I think in many ways that is exactly why we are still together!
Works most days, but the other days, Yikes!
Well they do say opposites attract ! 😆
On the days we’re not killing each other! 🙂
Errrrrrr…..did you write this for me ?! Bang on the money girlfriend x
looks like there are quite a few of us out there! Glad you enjoyed it.
Yep. I’ve got one of those guys too.
I kind of have to be nice to mine right now. He’s been racking up some points.
It’s fun to stop by here. Never know what to expect!
Thank you. Thats a very nice comment. Maybe its the way my muddled brain works. Be nice to you fella they’re worth the effort! I’m enjoying my visits to you too.
Your muddled brain is great. I’m liking muddled and messy stuff lately
So many opposites but I’m sure there are as many things that you agree on just like Phill and I 🙂
Hi. Yes so many of us found our opposite by the looks of things. And most days that is just perfect! Thanks for reading.
I really enjoyed reading this
Thanks, I enjoyed writing it.
