Ask Cardine: Part V - The Dreaded Lists

So, about a week ago cjane's blog had a post, essentially requesting that I do a similar post.

3 - When they cry about their testimonies, their families, or other endearing things
4 - When they listen to what I have to say, think about it, and intelligently respond
5 - Kindness
6 - Laughter with love
7 - When their eyes shine

7 Thing I say often:
1 - That's funny.
2 - That's hilarious.

Hey, wait a second, Cardine! How do you know you can't play the tuba? Have you ever tried and failed? I'll bet you actually can do it. And I believe I've seen you get a hole-in-one in golf. Miniature golf, yes, but still. ...

julie said...

I love your answers, especially the bit about making out at the 'C'. It's a worthwhile goal. I'm not quite sure what lace-up pants are, though, and I'm a bit scared to ask. I also love the things you put about what will attact you to your future spouse (ceteris paribus). Can I say ditto to them all?
