It's Metafilter's 20th anniversary! To celebrate, scan some cats or help fund Mefi! Nice person, mean drunk.
Today, I hate my husband, tomorrow he might become the most incredible man I have ever met. Deep down I know his behavior for better or worse is consistent, and the only thing that osculates is my perception of him, so theoretically, that should be enough to stop my fits of rage or crying spells. I hate to admit my seemingly perfect world is nothing more than an illusion, which looks great on paper or on Facebookbut is certainly not devoid of jealousy, insecurity.

It has been 41 days since my husband and I lived under the same roof. So earlier he asked me to buy him some beer, and I refused. I had made my viewpoint clear on whether I would buy him alcohol or not—and the answer was always NO.
My husband is older than me. When we met I was 21 — a mature 21, I had done a lot of traveling, I had a good job and I loved my life. But there he was. He was handsome, funny, manly, gentle, kind, intelligent, interesting.
It's even hard for me to believe I've gone that long without ingesting a substance stronger than caffeine. And look, despite being a recovering alcoholic, I'm not a prude about booze. I obviously think drinking is awesome and super-fun or I wouldn't have done so much of it that I had to quit permanently. There's a reason every culture since pretty much the beginning of time has been into altering their mental state with whatever beverage or plant or fungi some local knucklehead realized could give you a buzz.
