On One Condition...

                  One sunny Saturday afternoon in the Twin Cities:

                                        Hubz:  Do you want to drive downtown to eat? 
                                        Me:  Sure! On one condition -- take my outfit photos. 
                                        Hubz:  Sure.  On one condition -- just at the parking lot. 
                                        Me:  Sure, parking lot.  On one condition -- rooftop! 
                                        Hubz:  Deal. 
                                        Me: Deal.

Hubby and I are such polar opposites.    
We make our marriage work by compromise such as above.  
Hard to believe that sometimes, I can be just downright demanding and overly excitable.

                                         A few years ago, that same conversation would have went like this: 

                                          Hubz:  Do you want to drive downtown to eat?                                         
                                          Me:  Sure!!!!  On one condition.  Take my outfit photos on top of a 
                                                  parking lot, overlooking the downtown buildings with the wind 
                                                  sweeping off my hair and making sure the sun not squinting my eyes. 
                                                  I'll be posing one side, hair flipped.  I want a standing shot, 
                                                  walking shot and close-up shot.  You'll need to tell me if my hair 
                                                  is out of place, my posture is slouched or my angle is unflattering.   
                                         Hubz:  I thought it's only one condition?  
                                         Me:  Ah yes, I want coffee before we do all that.

Clearly, we've gone a long way since.
