When someone asks me, “What would your final meal be?” you might as well have asked me to write a thesis on quantum physics – it’s just too difficult to wrap my head around.
I would also venture to bet that the odds of understanding quantum physics are similar to that of finding a partner who has the same “What would your final meal be?” response as you do. It’s insurmountable, really. But as I wasted my time pondering such deep questions – the food part, not the physics part – a miracle happened. Let me tell you the tale of this miracle.
Here’s a fun fact: I can’t eat dairy. But despite this gastrointestinal insight, I still follow Annie’s on Instagram. Why do I subject myself to such delicious, cheesy torture if my body doth protest? BECAUSE I AM A WOMAN IN THE 21ST CENTURY AND I CAN DO WHAT I WANT DAMMIT. Excuse me, that wasn’t very ladylike.
One lovely, cheese-less day, I was scrolling my feed and stumbled upon a simple, but still ooey, gooey, “I just want to put my face in that bowl of processed, yet still organic, carb-cheese fest and never leave” mac-n-cheese photo. I missed it. I wanted it. The cravings were real. So real in fact that I would have invited it home to meet my parents and given it a final rose, no questions asked. And apparently, I had nothing better to do that day than to direct message my husband this post:
GASP! MIRACLES DO EXIST!
While I never doubted my spouse choice, his response only confirmed that this man is indeed, the mac to my indigestible cheese. I now know that if for whatever reason I wasn’t able to personally make the call on my final meal, this man knows what’s up and has his priorities straight in the world. And I hope he knows that I’ve got his back on all things, especially when it comes to his preferred carbs to cheese ratio.
So as we celebrate five years of marriage this weekend, I can rest a little easier knowing that even though I don’t understand quantum physics, I’ve got the best kind of man by my side. A man-n-cheese man.
Happy anniversary, Josh. I love you so much.
