The Better Half

Flutter did a post about her boy after being tagged by Kyla.
And Flutter was kind enough to tag anyone who read it to participate.
As is the usual lately, I am stumped on something to write about, I jumped all over it.

1. Who is your man?
Known in certain circles as Ravioli - or Rav. More commonly as Bryan.

2. How long have you been together?
We've been together for 6 years.

gawd, look how thin and young we looked. that was from when we first started dating.

3. How long did you date?
Before getting pregnant? Um, 4 months.
Before getting married? 2 years.
We knew that we were it for each other pretty early.
He knew before I did.
Well. That's not entirely true.
I was fighting it.

4. How old is your man?
27 years old & he rubs it in every chance he gets that I am older than him.

5. Who eats more?
That is just too close to call. We both can pack it away.

6. Who said "I love you" first?
My guess would be that it was Rav. Honestly, sitting here right now I can't remember.
(i'm terrible, i know)

7. Who is taller?
Considering we are both Hobbits I find this an amusing question.
Rav is taller though. By about 3 or 4 inches.
(he is so going to comment because of this answer)

8. Who sings better?
Rav without a doubt. Totally.
He may make up his own lyrics to songs. He may be ahead of the beat 9 times out of 10.
But dude can sing.

9. Who is smarter?
Hmmm. I think it's pretty even there.

10. Whose temper is worse?
Though, when Rav really gets mad, he blows. Must of the time, it's pretty tough to ruffle his feathers.
I got every ounce of Irish temper left behind by my ancestors.

11. Who does the laundry?
We both do. It's a large task, laundry is in this household. It generally takes the both of us to tackle putting it all away & we each try to stay on top of making sure things get in the washer and dryer.

12. Who takes out the garbage?
We both do. When one forgets, the other remembers to lug the trash can to the curb.

13. Who sleeps on the right side of the bed?
Rav does. Though we tend to mix it up every so often.

14. Who pays the bills?
Pretty much me.

15. Who is better with the computer?
Rav. Totally. I've got absolutely no skills. Ask Slackermommy. She'll tell ya!

16. Who mows the lawn?
Mainly me. Rav might once or twice a season. But mainly me.

17. Who cooks dinner?
Primarily me. Rav might cook up a box of mac 'n' cheese for the kids now and again. But the majority of the cooking is done by yours truly.

18. Who drives when you are together?
Again, primarily me.
And again there are exceptions. But most of the time it is me. So much so that on the rare occasions that when Rav does take the wheel, the kids beg for Mommy to drive.

19. Who pays when you go out?
I think this is a sort of weird question just because all of our money is pulled together in the same pot. I don't consider either of our wages "mine" or "his". It is "ours". He may actually, physically pay the bill. But we both contribute monetarily.

20. Who is most stubborn?
He is certainly stubborn. Totally.
But I think I've got him beat by just a smidge.

21. Who is the first to admit when they are wrong?
Me. Rav might be wrong more often. Yeah. That sounds good.

And in all seriousness, even when he knows he is wrong he'll fight it & fight it until you produce proof otherwise.

22. Whose parents do you see the most?
We see my mom and stepfather more often than my dad or his parents.

23. Who kissed who first?
It was mutual, I think.
But I think I initiated it.
You'll have to ask him for that story.

24. Who asked who out?
Rav asked me out.
He thought he was so money.
He thought he was kicking mad game.
It was pretty bad.
But he had his charm about him despite his shaky game.

25. Who proposed?
He asked me to marry him, but the whole act of becoming engaged was a mutual effort.

26. Who is more sensitive?
Once again, we both are very sensitive people.
Though I would venture to say that I am a bit more sensitive.

27. Who has more friends?
I would say that it is probably me.

28. Who has more siblings?
Rav. He has three older brothers.

29. Who wears the pants in the family?
Yours truly.

(I picked this picture because it is from far away & you can barely see my face. For whatever reason, I am becoming less and less photogenic. But is a pic from this past weekend in Baltimore. And it illustrates the fact that I do wear the pants in the family.)

Oh, and go for it if you feel so inclined.

15 ripples in the pond:

Okay then!

Rav, what say you? :)



flutter said...

I would bet you are delightfully photogenic these days...and I love Rav, I love you!

This meme is so cool

liv said...

I could make up a sad song, like about how I can't just go for it because I'm ALL byyyyyy myyyseelllfff!

Rav said...

Where to begin? I will only contradict my darling on one answer, #21 I believe. Tabba never admits she is wrong. I may be wrong often, and I may argue until I'm blue in the face, but Tabba will never admit she is wrong. Oh, and I certainly don't hold my breath waiting for apologies either!

Tricia said...

#13: ;) Heh heh...
That's all I'll say.

And liv, is that seat next to you over in the Lonely Hearts section taken? :)

That was great, Tabba. And I'd be willing to bet you're a lot more photogenic than you think you are. You know that no one else will ever scrutinize a photo of you like you do. But...sigh...that's how all us women are!

It's interesting to learn these little tidbits about another couple.

I'm not sure I'm likely to tag myself on this one. John is much more private than I am. (Out of curiousity, who is more private between you and Rav?)

KC said...

That early picture of the two of you is SO ADORABLE. The latter one may be too but since you're only 2 mm tall from being so far away, I can't see!

Cute. Cute. Cute.

Lacey said...

Good post-learned bunches! =)

jen said...

you two are adorable.

Tabba said...

I DO too admit when I am wrong, you punk.

But the times when I need to are so few and far between, you probably forget ;)

Aliki2006 said...

Good answers, Tabba--you crazy kids, you!

I loved the pics--you guys just send a glow right off the page--all of you!

Denguy said...

Which is the right side of the bed?
Is it when you're in the bed lying down, or while you're standing at the foot of the bed looking at it? Honestly.

carrie said...

You guys are a perfect couple!

Love. love. love you both!

Pamela said...

That was awesome! I like the picture of him holding up to beers. I have a picture just like that of "my" Brian---men... can't live with 'em, can't live without 'em
