“My fiance is the most beautiful person upon whom I’ve ever laid eyes. She is also the most grammatically astute.”
Every once in a while, Facebook tells the story perfectly. In one single proclamation to the world, this Facebook status perfectly encapsulates why John & Charli needed to be in a library after their sunrise in a boat. Their very first conversation was an academic (and potentially heated, it can be assumed) exchange delving into the wide world of theology. Their first evening together included a battle over favorite Narnia books. Their lives currently revolve around courseload and exam season. And anyone who uses “astute” in a facebook status is, obviously, astute.
(And, no, I’m not a stalker. This just happened to be in my news feed as I was scheduling this blog post to be published.)
John: So, for instance, you went out of your way to tell me that you were not at all interested in me, now you’re going to marry me! Yeah – I win!
Charli: So you’re the winner?
Charli: So what does that make me, the loser?
John: Haha, yeah!
Charli: So, if marrying you makes me a loser, what does that say about you?
(And no, I’m not a stalker. This post, from several months ago, preserved their intelligent cuteness. My brain could not keep up with their witty banter in person, so I went and found it online.)
