I'm not the most easy-going person in the world. I am a little...grouchy. And impatient. I have even been told that I can be intimidating. But for some reason, my husband is unperturbed by my occasional (stop that laughing!) moodiness and bad temper. He finds them inexplicably charming. And he has an unusual talent for defusing my bad moods by making me laugh.
The other day, we were driving home after a very full day of activities, most of which did not go as planned, and I was a bit grumpy. My darling husband--who is the only one who could ever manage this without losing a hand--patted my leg affectionately, grinned, and said, "You're just so cute when you're mad!"
To which Older Son grumbled loudly from the back seat: "Huh! Not in MY world!"
