Real Things My Boyfriend Said to Me in 2016

. December 29, 2016.

My boyfriend and I have been together for over four years and
he never stops making me laugh with the way he looks at the world. Throughout the year, I collected those strange little things my boyfriend said to me. They are funnier out-of-context. A lot
of these moments represent a disruption in his analytical
engineering mind and result in a comical revelation.

“Your gentle distress is what makes me get up in the morning.”

“Don’t laugh at me; I’m hungry.”

“Do I have to bring my own weed wacker?”

“Don’t, I’m eating cereal!”

“Ah no! My secret!”

“What kind of F-ing apples do you want? What the hell are Jazz apples?”

“You think I’ve never burnt documents in the sink before?”

“This weekend is a weekend. Next weekend is a weekend. Boy howdy, they just keep coming.”

“So, I was doing some math in the shower.”
