[An extension of a previous post – My Taiwanese Husband & His Most Amazing Moment in Vegas]
Traveling with a love one, especially with a husband, wife, or significant other, is absolutely incredible. You get to experience and embrace different cultures, sights, and sounds together. You get to sample the local cuisine together and share some of life’s most memorable moments as a couple. But, there are these rare occasions, those moments that you wish could be forgotten, that could be erased from memory. Those moments of embarrassment, of humiliation!
I love my husband but I honestly believe that he has a selective memory, something that I have recently dubbed as ‘sometimers.’ Ask him what he did yesterday and you will be met with a blank stare! Say the word Vegas and he will go on about how he got IDed and I did not – a story that I wrote about in the past.
However, there are another few other words that jogs his memory as well: Malaysia, birds, 3D movies, and Florida.
Believe me, I am not kidding. My theory was recently put to the test and once again, it was proven to be correct. One particular story that I am going to share with you emerged right before the start of the movie, Fast and Furious 7. There I was, seated between my husband and his mother. I took the 3D glasses out of the bag, looked at them to make sure they were clean, and my husband began to laugh. I knew what was coming, the first example in this post, story #1…..
~1~ The 3D Effect
Mention the words ‘Florida’ or 3D and this story comes to life!
During our visit to the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida, my husband and I had the opportunity to watch not one, but two 3D movies. One of the movies commenced by primarily focusing on the space shuttle launch at the beginning. And I must admit that it felt so real, like I was right there, really viewing it. As the rockets fired up and the engines started to roar, you could feel the immense energy. As the shuttle launched into the air, the sheer pressure sent rocks flying through the air at an incredible force, causing the glass to break. It felt so real that my instant reaction was to touch my eye glasses that were located under the 3D glasses without thinking [not sure why I wasn’t wearing contacts]. I tried to cover up my not so bright moment by rubbing my eyes but my husband didn’t fall for it and started laughing at me. I was busted!
~2~ Ready, Aim, Fire!
Mention the word ‘Malaysia’ or ‘bird,’ and these events will be retold. Sometimes even a bird flying overhead can also trigger memories of this story for my husband.
During our visit to Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia, my husband and I visited a forested area located within the city limits. During our temporary escape from the hustle and bustle of the city, our green oasis literally became one of those places where s**t literally fell from the sky. Yes, one bird decided to dump its load of poop and aim it right on my head, all over my hair, and then splattered all over my clothes. My husband must have anticipated this embarrassing moment as he documented my entire predicament by taking photos and now we have official evidence of the day where the ‘s**t’ went down [on me]!!
I am not sure why but I was lucky enough to have a change of clothes in my backpack that day– I guess I must have subconsciously predicted that something was going to happen that day!
Unfortunately for my husband, I also recall some embarrassing moments where he was the [unfortunate] star of the show. One particular incident involves cake and whenever I bake, that memory comes to mind.
But that is for another post at another time!
