the end

August 10, 2009

This conversation took place on Saturday when Peter’s plane had landed, and I was to pick him up at the airport.

Peter: I’ll be on the end.

Jess: The last door?

Peter: No, the one on the end. You’ll have be on the right side you can be ready to stop right away.

Jess: I thought you were going to be at the end.

Peter: The first end.

Jess: Oh, right, the beginning.

Clearly, we see the world differently! He sees two ends, a first and a last. I see a beginning and an end.

    LOL! That’s great! How do you see that these differing views affect you in your everyday life?

    In the beginning of our marriage, he would be telling me something, and I just could not understand what he meant. Not hard techie stuff, but simple stuff. That hasn’t happened in awhile thankfully.

    To Peter, end times are pretty irrelevant, but I definitely like to know when something is going to end, no matter how wonderful and fun it is. Not sure why, but this knowledge actually increases my enjoyment of a good thing, and my tolerance of a bad thing. I know it’s weird!

    I thought that you were going to say “at the beginning of our marriage, Peter called it the end and I was really confused.”
