It’s been a while since I’ve been in a normal, healthy, growing relationship that I had forgotten/ never reached this funny and frightening stage, er, two stages….
One: We can’t stop calling each other names, to the point of constantly trying to out-do each other. There are some endearing ones, but mostly they are sassy and cheekily insulting ones. Uhm, it’s an exercise in creativity….
Two: You notice the striking similarity between your partner and some pop-culture icon and henceforth cannot shake the image from your mind.
At least, I think we are quite healthy….
