The Sunday Edition
Maybe my comment is solidifying your point but I'd love to ask about some non-scare examples? Maybe some more of the snowball flinging, water splashing, silly bits of fun? I'd love to/think it's important to add more mischief and fun into my relationship with my hubs but both of us are definitely not members of the fright camp. Neither of us like scary movies; jump scares spike my anxiety.... We're just definitely boring that way. But there has to be some more examples of non scary fun bits, right??
I almost spit out my coffee when I watched the prank on your dad, and his reaction!! I remember always trying to scare my dad, and being so proud of myself when I could. He was a retired Army Colonel who wasn't phased by much, so it took a lot! But let me tell you, his retaliation ALWAYS scared the absolute S**T out of me!!
So here’s the dealio…
I love to scare, tickle, surprise, prank etc…
I hate to be on the receiving end!
I love how proud you sounded of waiting 20 minutes to scare Sarah! Laughter, joy, pranks and mischief are such an important part of all the best relationships! Also your Dad’s reaction is golden! That’s a solid God Dang It!!
My husband and I have been together forever (going on 15 years). After our relationship had evolved from boyfriends to partners, I remember asking Randall if it would always be this wonderful--with butterflies and besottedness galore. He told me that it would evolve over time and would still be loving, supportive but more mature. (He and his late partner had been together for 20 years, so he could be considered something of an authority). Here we are after 15 years in love and nearly eight years of marriage--and I’m happy to say that we’re just as silly, buggo and generally nuts as we were on Day One. Until we heard this podcast we never really knew what kept it so fresh. Tyler, you hit the nail on the head. Your haiku perfectly describes how our relationship has stayed so fresh. Love Kyle & Randall
Whether it be a prank or a snowball fight- don’t stop laughing and ‘playing’ together. Such sage advice. I’d say that’s where we went wrong.
Yes!! One of my very favourite things about my partner is how playful he is, and how he can help me see (in a gentle way) when I’m taking myself too seriously. Such great advice :) Loved these videos!
My partner likes to prank me with surprise jokes, funnies, and puns. And I have a way of guilelessly setting them up for him … then I just fall into it and sometimes he gets a cuff but mostly he gets eyerolls and exasperated laughter. And he just giggles.
It's precious to me. … and he gets a big kick out of it. I love people who can make me laugh. He most certainly does for sure.
