It’s Always Dave

At our Valentine dinner, I described to my husband how I’m doing a Facebook 30-day Challenge.  It’s posting the picture of the day (the person you could not imagine living without, etc.).I’ve posted a different person each day, but—like I told David—the truth is, it’s always him.  But, yeah, it would be weird to post Dave for every category.  People would think I’m clever, contrived, or kissing up.  David’s response was astute: each of these categories should be the spouse.  If not, something’s wrong.  Well said, Dave.

As I review the list, though, it would be a stretch to say David would be top choice for all 30.  We actually giggled that I would definitely not chose him for a person you’d love to trade places with for a day.  He said he would not want to trade with me, either.  We prudently decided not to analyze that!  But Day 10 could have totally been Dave:  the person you do the most messed up things with.

Overall, this Challenge has been an unexpected opportunity to mention people who mean a lot to me.  And I love the comments: for the category the person whose gotten me through the most, I posted my mom.  My husband’s aunt wrote, “Good job, Laura, giving credit where credit is due.”  If this photo project does nothing else, it will have knocked me into consciousness regarding how indebted I am to my family.

Well, for the remaining two weeks, it’ll be fun to secretly decide where David would have been the one.  I can say right now he can rest assured it would not be Days 18 or 21: my biggest insecurity, and something I wish I could forget.

    Thought your comment about “Day 10 could have totally been Dave: the person you do the most messed up things with” was pretty funny. I would have to say my answer to that would be me. O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death?

    Why don’t you put the challenges up on the blog so us faceless book folks can follow along?
