Love is … a sensitive toilet rota

Filed under: Family,Relationships — - @ 12:21 pm

The thrill of a new love affair? They’re right, it does go. It couldn’t possibly last, or your life would be a madhouse.

They’re also right, however, when they say that it can be replaced by something deeper, stronger and richer. As well as by a whole lot of stuff you would never associate with love in a million years. Until it happens.

It was just the same routine small talk Mrs NoL and I have every morning before we leave for work. Is the back door locked? Have you got your lunch? Have a nice day.

But then she says, “If you need to brush your teeth, go and do them now, because I need the toilet and I suspect you won’t want to be going into the bathroom after me…”

And on the way to work, it occurs to me that after 20 years of marriage, that is love.

But try writing a ballad about it.
