It's time once again for Mama Kat's Weekly Homework Assignment! This week, I chose the following prompt: What did you compromise when you married? Ooh, this could be the kiss of death here, right?
To be honest, I don't really think I compromised too much. Well, there are two areas I had to compromise that I can think of. The first is sports - I love to watch sports ... and yes, I still do watch a lot of sports. BUT, when it comes to attending sports games, I don't do it nearly as much anymore. That's ok for the most part - I really don't like going to pro football games - I'd rather watch them on TV. I've been pretty much priced out of hockey. Really, the only sport I'd like to watch live more is baseball. The wife really doesn't enjoy it, so I don't go much. I'd like to go more with friends, and I guess I could, but I don't for some reason.
I also LOVE stand up comedy. I love watching it. I love listening to it. I love talking to friends about it. However, the wife isn't a fan. We've gone to one stand-up show, and I don't think she had a good time. When I have it on TV, she loses interest. If I want to listen to it on my Slacker (look it up), she objects. It's not a huge deal, but still.
I guess if those are really the only concessions I've had to make, that's not too bad, is it? My wife probably has had to make more concessions, especially with my finickey eating habits.
