The Marzipan Incident
Ever had an OBSESSION? Something you needed to do immediately, simply couldn't get enough of, or use common sense about? I may have (a few times), but this is one (semi-)endearing characteristic of my husband that pops up frequently. Marzipan, desire for cheese-making, bonzai tree-creating, real root beer -making, pickeling...to name a few...are some obsessions of my husband. He keeps me on my toes with these quirky desires that pop up. Don't worry, they usually don't stress me, they mostly make me smile. After growing up a bit, he has recognized his typical symptoms and can determine if it is a "Marzipan Moment" or a true desire he would like to follow through with. He has come up with a brilliant (and comical) way to deal with these moments. He has created his own blog http://www.themarzipanincident.blogspot.com/ where he will feature the obsession of the moment. Hooray for my dear love! He has found an economically feasible way to fulfill his heart's (many) desires and a way to make me smile and laugh in the process. I love him and will be eagerly watching to see his newest post and obession!
