This is going to sound stupid, but I sometimes forget that I haven't known my husband for all that long. In the span of our lives, we have only known eachother for 4 years. But this weekend we actually got to spend some time together (shocker!) and I was reminded again of how much of Phil's past I really don't know about:
(Old song comes on the radio)
Phil: This song reminds me of elementary school dances.
Me: Your elementary school had dances? (pretty shocked)
Me: Well I guess if you are going to get knocked up by 16, you really have to start socialization early.
Phil: Yup. I know it was elementary school because I had a girlfriend.
Me: You had a girlfriend in elementary school?!?! (Even more shocked primarily because Phil was and still is super shy)
Phil: Yeah. And her ex-boyfriend kept trying to cut-in and dance with her. It was really annoying.
Me: (Jokingly) Did you fight him?
Phil: Not then, but I did push him over a desk in class once.
I could NEVER picture kid-Phil pushing another kid over a desk.
Me: Did you get in trouble?
Phil: No. I waited for the teacher to leave the room.
That makes more sense.
Phil: When she came back in, she didn't believe when people said I had done it. So I didn't get in trouble.
Learn something new about him everyday.
Going to have to watch out for our kids if they get Phil's sneaky side.
