Mark Gunderson: Our Crisis Filled Love: At Least It's Not Boring

1     2     3     4

My wife and I can be romantic.

I decided to ruin her birthday last year by going jean shopping by myself; I came home to find her cleaning the house, on her birthday.

The night before my birthday, we bought a VW Vanagon; that night we took it out on a birthday date. The van broke down in the rain and we barely made it home; the next day she told me to take it back. Happy Birthday babe, happy birthday.

We tried to take a family vacation this summer to the beach; the night before we left I woke up vomiting every hour. We went anyway. We began a walk from our hotel to the beach only to find out that we needed to go through about three miles of sand dunes to get there — no big deal, unless you have to carry two kids, sand toys, and some diggers.

We love bikes. We found an old tandem that I fixed up to go out on dates together. We took it out a couple weeks ago and got about a half mile when we realized that the back chain had come off and broken three spokes. We ended up walking home.

We’ve been married four years and it seems like this kind of stuff always happens.

And we love each other still, so much.

This is our romance.
