I’d almost forgotten how we came up with Team Awesome. I’d beat him in Jenga. Twice.
My sweet, love had actually never played Jenga before. That was unheard of to me, but that didn’t stop me from laying the smack down. I’m a pretty cheesy girl and even though I’m the cheesy one in our relationship, he always says things are awesome.
That song is awesome.
That shirt is awesome.
Dinner was awesome.
You’re awesome babe.
He says awesome a lot (very cheesy of him, I know). After beating him like he’d stole something, as part of my victory celebration, I touted that Team Awesome. It stuck. It’s like our super hero name. It’s our way of reminding each other that win, lose or draw, we’ve got each other’s backs. If nothing else it’s way cooler, and perhaps cheesier, than pet names.
An easy way to love him is coming with a name for your relationship. Call it something. Make it fun. It will become meaningful.
