Raging example as to why I love Maris…
Scene: Walking back to the car from safeway where we got Diet Cokes and an assortment of unhealthy snacks:
Maris: “Ok I have a serious question… Do you like Cherry or Strawberry flavor better?”
Me: “Are we talking fruit or candy? Or the entire flavor spectrum?”
Maris: “Mmm… in general… what do you like better? I mean I like eating strawberries better than cherries but cherry flavoring better…”
Me: “Hmm …. I’m gonna have to go with Strawberry because EVERYTHING has a cherry flavor and strawberry is just harder to find.”
And then she reached into her bag and threw me this:
God I love you maris. Don’t ever leave.
