Meet the Clennons

Meet the Clennons |
Meet my husband Vince.  He’s, among many things, the Graphic Artist and Audio Engineer over by Spazzed Out Media.  I am Kay – I also have varied interest.  We’re very similar, yet we’re waaaaaayyyyy different.

Our differences

  • He’s nocturnal, I try to be in bed by 9.
  • If we need to cross a river (for example), he’ll take off run towards the river like a crazy person and figure out the obstacles along the way.  I, on the other hand, will first come up with a well calculated – actuarially sound even – plan of the potential obstacles and how to deal with each.
  • He always want to purchase yet another tech related item and I’ll always ask  “do we really need it?”
  • He’s not naturally organised – I am.
  • He’ll leave a pot in the sink to soak over night even when in my opinion there’s not a blessed thing in the pot to soak out other than it’s colour.
  • He keeps receipts and heaven knows what else in the car.  I’m always throwing them out and tidying up.
  • He does things in his own sweet time.  I’d much rather that he do things on my timing.
  • He’s the social butterfly in this relationship which makes me seem antisocial.
  • He finds me miserable at times.  I so happen to think that I’m awesome and he’s annoying.
I could go on, but these are just a few of our differences.
Since I’m not yet ready to sell him (I wonder how much I’d fetch for him on the open market), I have no other choice but to live with him.  Consequently, I decided that maybe, just maybe, I should stop wishing he was more like me and accept the dude for who he is.  We may have different ways to go about things and one way isn’t necessarily better than the other.   After all, aren’t there several ways to skin a cat?

The “AHA moment”

In this journey called life, we’ll come across varying degrees of personalities.  Some will be more challenging to deal with than others.  Some we’ll have to live with and together figure out this thing called life.
What if – just what if – we try to accept each other for who we are – the good, the bad, the ugly and the in between?
