One of the best things about my marriage is that Missy and I share our passions. We're unabashed nerds. We find something we like, and get super into it, like crazy. Occasionally, this makes us go off on a wild hare after something.
We'll stay up late playing video games together, or binge watch all the X-Men movies. I love that when I like something, and share it with her, sometimes she gets into above and beyond me.
Ingress is like that. Today we went out "portalling" - chasing down portals all over town, as a team.
We bopped all over the place. We crashed through brush, climbed over rock walls to clamber down the side of a hill, walked several miles, and made about thirty-seven u-turns chasing down enemy portals, and capturing them for our faction.
We. saw. turtles.
At one point this morning, when we were getting ready to go about our day, I hugged her, and told her she's my best friend. I'm grateful to be married to someone so cool.
