One of my professors back in college asked who among us have plans to get married in the “far” future. With emphasis on the word “far” because she didn’t want us running off and getting married right after college. All my classmates raised their hands, including those who are definitely OUT. I didn’t raise mine and my professor noticed. She asked why and I answered with a grin,
“I don’t really think I’m the marrying type.”
The look on her face was pretty priceless after my answer took her by surprise. I was her favorite student after all and it would mean that everything she taught me, every lesson that she tried to ingrain in my head about the challenges of married life and how to deal with it will eventually go to waste. But you can’t really blame me. I answered on impulse, based on an instinct I have at that moment.
