She said, He said

The other day, after eating lunch,  I mentioned that it was the best lunch ever.  Erik was quick to point out how often I exclaim something is the best ever.  He said I often exaggerate.  I agreed.  When I exited the truck, I picked up one his business cards and said, "Wow! This is the best business card, ever."  Then I thanked him for the best lunch ever and told him how happy I was about the best weather ever.

I didn't think much of our conversation until this weekend.  He said, "I can't wait until May 15, this new game comes out".  I reminded him about how I often say, " ever" and pointed out how he often is excited about the future.  I pondered this.  This is how we work.  I am in the here and now and enjoying every single minute of it.  Not worrying about the future and not spending too much time in the past.  Erik on the other hand, thinks - this is good now, but it will only get better.  He is always thinking about the future, not just in terms of games and technology debuts, but in general.

At dinner last night, I shared our story with our couple friends.  She sided with me, and he with Erik.  So, is this true for all couples?
