What are your middle names?
My middle name was Dian, but now I use my maiden name, Langley, as my middle name.
Chuck's is Pierce. But he's not Charles Pierce....he's William Pierce. Go figure. Apparently his grandfather thought he looked like a little woodchuck....and the "Chuck" stuck as his nickname.
How long have you been together?
Dated for a year; married for 25 1/2 years. whew!
Taken at a "50's" party in our dating days. "50's" parties were all the rage...I swear I went to at least one a year.....Happy Days.
October 22, 1983
We had a church reception.........and when we arrived that day, there was a hideous mural on butcher paper on the walls........the caterer tried to cover it with a lattice screen. Made for a great background. Very small wedding.........very large marriage.
Who asked whom out?
Whose siblings do you see most often?
We socialize with my sister, Catha, and her husband, Kim, as often as possible.
Chuck's brother and sister live in Mississippi...
I'm a spender married to a saver.
No, but I went to highschool with a boy that ended up being in engineering classes with Chuck at Mississippi State. They came out to Houston together to work for the electric company in a co-op program and that's how I met Chuck....through my highschool friend.
Chuck is educated....meaning he got a college degree...and he is very intelligent about worldly things like geography and history and math and political situations.
Chuck remembers everything he ever learned. I remember.....uh, where was I going with this.....
Where is the furthest you two have traveled together as a couple?
Hum....which is further from Houston? Vancouver, Canada or Montreal? We took the Via (train trip) across Canada the spring of '84 with my family.
Who has the craziest "exes?"
I think I'm the only one with exes.....and I'm going to say they were "crazy" to let me get away.
Who has the worst temper?
The one that had the PMS. And is now menopausal.
Who does the cooking?
I cook, he grills......mostly I'm the one who gets it on the table the majority of the time. Hahaha....table! We really eat in front of the tv.
Who is more stubborn?
I am. He is. And we have 3 children more stubborn than either of us.
He lays very still, right down the middle.
I toss and turn but hug the edge. So I'm going to say he does.
Who wakes up earlier?
He does....long commute.
I sleep until the very last possible minute.
Who is more jealous?
On a day to day basis, I am not feeling any jealousy.
How long did it take to get serious?
Once we began dating.....only a few weeks. We already knew each other as good friends, but had never been around each other alone...just the 2 of us. Since he was a non-talker, I thought he was a "zero"........but he actually had a funny personality and it didn't take me long to figure out he was a really good guy.
Who eats more?
Chuck eats more at one sitting. I eat more often during the day.
He has the ability to skip meals.....I can't do that.
Who's better with the computer?
Chuck, the computer nerd. But I blog. And he's impressed.
Who drives when you are together?
Usually Chuck. But I am on the right side, hitting the brakes against the floorboard. Chuck is an aggressive driver and I do alot of "correcting"......and preparing for the bullet to enter my body when he makes someone mad because he is crawling up their tailpipe.
I'm sure it's a "control" issue with me. By the way, I get all the speeding tickets in the marriage.
And there you have it. More than you probably wanted to know.
