I did this of my own free will...

Becky challenged me to take this little quiz and since I have seen this around on other sites and thought it would be a fun one to try out, here are my answers. I will do a quick quevaluation afterwards.

Questions about Harold and me.

How long have you been together?
Married 13 years.

How long did you date?
Dated from end of April 1994 to mid August, broke up for six weeks, started dating again early October, got engaged October 24, 2007. (best guess)

How old is he?
He is 38. He is 5 days older than me.

Who eats more?
In public, Harold. In private, me.

Who is Taller?

Who sings better?
It might be a toss up. We both enjoy singing but I wouldn't say either of us is superb.

Who is Smarter?
Another toss up. But Harold definitely has a WAY better memory. So, I would pick Harold.

Who does the Laundry?
Me. But the whole family usually folds and puts away together.

Who does the dishes?
After a family dinner we usually all work on it, until the kids sneakily drift away. Sometimes after a particularly grueling meal Harold will do all the dishes for me.

Who mows the lawn?
Harold. Thank goodness. I have never mowed a lawn in my entire life.

Who cooks dinner?

Who drives when you are together?
I prefer to drive, unless I am tired, then I prefer Harold to drive. His driving is a bit scary to me, so I have to be half unconscious to deal with it.

Who is more stubborn?
We are both stubborn.

Who kissed who first?
Harold kissed me, after me convincing him that it was time.

Who asked who out?
Harold asked me out by sliding on a wheeled chair over to the fax machine where I was standing. We went to Olive Garden.

Who Proposed?
Harold. I foiled his plans a bit and he didn't want to wait for his plans to be perfect, so we got engaged at Tony Roma's.

Who has more friends?
I do. But Harold is catching up. Harold definitely knows more people and way more people love and respect him.

Who has more siblings?
We both have 5 siblings.

Who is more sensitive?
I cry at dumb commercials, so that would be me. Harold laughs at me while I am crying at dumb commercials, so I would say he doesn't have a sensitive bone in his body. :)

Analysis: I feel like things are pretty equal with H and me. I was just thinking at church today how lucky I feel to have found someone who loves me so much and treats me so well. I definitely got the cream of the crop.

it's funny that Harold laught at you when you are crying. We were just talking about that tonight at dinner. They pretend not to have a sensitive bone.. but really, they have lots of them!

You and Harold are very nicely matched. I cry at sentimental commercials all the time. In fact Dane has forbidden me to watch the Hallmark Hall of Fame specials on tv because all the commercials are those sappy Hallmark ones and I cry for like two hours straight.

I heartily agree. You got the cream of the crop.

To the person who crys at sappy Hallmark commercials, you need to visit the Hallmark Museum in KC. They have a whole section devoted to their commercials. You can go into a little booth and press buttons, choosing the ones you would like to view. I spent hours in there watching the Hallmark specials in the projection room and in the little booth watching the commercials--in all languages, no less.

A great place to visit!
