I would love to read others' answers!
Inspired by my wife’s constant observations that her house looks very different thanks to me, and my constant rebuttals that she’s got things I wouldn’t have in mine otherwise, either. This is for people who share a home with a romantic partner, pretty much.
Basically, it goes like this: List ten things that are only in your home because *you* are there, the things your spouse or partner would absolutely not have around otherwise. Then list ten things that are only in your home because your partner is there, the things you sure as hell wouldn’t have around if you didn’t have your beloved around, either.
Things that are only in our home because of me:
2. Calico cats
3. Country CDs
4. Most of the hip-hop CDs
5. Copies of Mad magazine
6. All things green or turquoise
7. My family pictures
8. Diet Pepsi
9. Enough ingredients for a complete meal
10. A food processor
Things that are only in our home because of my partner:
1. Any and all things grey or red
3. Classical CDs
4. Opera CDs
5. Books about mathematical concepts
6. Books and periodicals in Russian
7. Cyrillic-alphabet keyboard
10. Balls of yarn
