This all sounds so familiar to me. Chris sometime...

This all sounds so familiar to me. Chris sometimes feels like I'm the one doing the Big Important Things, because I'm getting my PhD, while we still haven't found him teaching work and so he's at the Soul-Sucking Call Centre.

But, again, he's making many more times what I'm making, on top of the fact that he's the one who holds this household together (especially this semester, with my three grad courses/two TAing courses workload).

But he's starting to see things differently, beyond the understanding that I'd be dead from scurvy if he wasn't around. It also helps that we're on the road to getting him back into his field and out of the call centre. And we hung out with a group of grad students last night and he discovered he could hold his own in a discussion with them.

I think I owe Chris a similar tribute, sometime soon.



A lovely tribute. It's nice to see two partners so...

A lovely tribute. It's nice to see two partners so supportive of each other. I recognized the argument, "You're the smart one"/"No, *you're* the smart one!" from my own life. That's when you know you've got a keeper.

If bets are being taking, I bet on the plumber... with two drains, one is sure to burst soon enough. ;)

I sometimes tell my wife, that I have too much respect for her judgement to think she would have married a failure. So, there you have it. He can't think you're so smart, if you'd have such poor judgement now can he? And since he thinks you're smart, well.... quod erat demonstratum.

By the way... I do have a GED. I only attended two years of high school (a military academy to boot). Started my bachelor's degree without a diploma, but was forced to get a GED in my third year of college (or they wouldn't let me continue).

I went on to start a Master's program without having graduated (transferring back a course, to receive my Bachelor's). At least I had my Master's in hand, when I started the PhD.
