Anal Retentive Meets Slob



I'm as un-anal retentive as one can be My wife's at the other end of the dial Makes for interesting discussions at times They sometimes last quite a while Opposites attract, they say it's true In our case it surely illustrates that fact Must show restraint every damn day For the sake of the dog and the cat Dishwashers get loaded a certain way Or armageddon will surely approach All these years I've been loading it wrong Really thought it was beyond reproach There's others, surely too many to mention Computer would run out of bytes Be sure you marry an opposite personality And enjoy all those rousing fights I'm as un-anal retentive as one can be My wife's at the other end of the scale Perhaps another reason for such marital bliss She's a female and I'm a male © Jack Ellison 2013

    ha! i can relate to this one. i sound more like your wife and i'm always glad that my husband puts up with me. i guess we learn how to dance around each other's craziness in a marriage. great poem!

    Hubby's opposite of me... He likes Trolls and I'm a Dragon person... He has imagination... I have a computer type writer. He's cute... I've a face made for radio. Ying and yang... He likes to shop... I like yard work... He stands up...I tip over... Dragon wants a walkie and my boot comes off in two weeks... YAY!!!!

    Haven't told him... I'll probably get a new boot shortly, there after... For now the walkies are a ride on his back... They're kinda fun! Nothing like a crazy old Bat riding Dragon... Stirs up the neighborhood... LOL

    Ha ha my friend, so you are saying your wife is anal retentive? Actually I would be considered partially that here at our house! The significant other here at our residence surely isn't considered anal retentive! Neither one of us are really that, but I'm intrigued about seeing your wife's extreme anal retentiveness! You have written a magnificent write here my friend! I really enjoyed reading this tremendous poem this morning! What a lovely piece, Great Work!!
