Do you ever have those moments where you can see your entire relationship in an instant? Eric and I have one such example, it shows who we are as individuals and it shows how our relationship is...all in the way we hang our bath towels.
You see Eric is the nice and neat towel hanger. He is precise and always has it together. He is the kind of person who wants to put labels next to all of the art in our house.
Then there is me...a little messy, but trying. If left to my own devices I would probably be pretty disorganized, but that is not the kind of world that I live in. So I am constantly battling every natural tendency I have. I try to be neat and organized, at least my bath towel is always hung up, not crumpled on the floor.
Now, how does this show how we work together? Well, Eric just accepts that I am the unpredictable element in his life when it comes to organization. He knows that I try. I, on the other hand, accept that Eric wants an orderly world where one will never exist. Somehow there is just an acceptance of differences on exhibit in our bath towels.
So there it all is in the bath towels. Which bath towel are you?
