"Sometimes the things you want the most don't happen, and what you least expect...happens. I don't know. You meet thousands of people and none of them really touch you. And then you meet that one person and your life is changed." -Jake Gyllenhaal, Love and Other Drugs

Remember that Grey's episode where Christina tells Meredith she's her "person?" At the time, I thought that was totally ridiculous. But now, after watching what is probably one of the crappiest movies on the planet with a really good ending quote (see above), I realized that the quote wasn't so stupid. 

My husband, that guy who stood me up on our first date, he's my person

What other man will watch Love and Other Drugs with you on a Saturday night over homemade chicken pesto pizza and wine? And then, when you're totally over the movie, will go pop those stupid Easter-themed break-and-bake cookies that you just had to have at the grocery in the oven, and bring you a huge glass of milk to go with the stupid over-priced cookies? 

I don't tell him that enough. I don't tell him how much I appreciate it when he bangs the broom on the ceiling when the stupid SMU college boys {who I'm pretty sure are drug dealers, but that's another post for another day} are playing Wii at 1 a.m. on a Tuesday morning.

I don't tell him how much I love it when he watches The Bachelor with me and provides commentary that would put Joel McHale to shame. 

I don't tell him that I majorly appreciate him putting up with my moodiness at times, and my constant pleas for a vacation.

I don't even tell him how thankful I am that he doesn't make me lug in the big 24-pack of bottled water each week when I get home from the grocery. 

So, babe, thanks for being my person...even though you do make me watch stupid movies like The Box.
