(I always want to tell people we are on our honeymoon - don't honeymooners make people happy? Make people smile? Yes! My husband thinks this is dishonest, to which I say, 'pish posh'.)
BUT, My husband (AKA, Honest Abe) smiled and said "no".
To which the man replied, "Oh good, you guys look WAY too young to be married!"
(FYI, we had just celebrated the 2 year anniversary of our marriage earlier that week.)
I was content to smile and nod, but Honest Abe over there smiled and said, "Oh, no, we got married a few years ago!"
"mumble mumble" goes the man, followed by a loud "how OLD are you guys?"
(WHICH, by the way, is a VERY rude question. I should know, I just bought this book on Amazon.)
Anyway, the man and my husband continued in awkward conversation about age and marriage while the man's wife and I sat, silent and red-faced, until we landed, collected our belongings, and de-boarded the plane.
Next time we're asked if we're on our honeymoon, I'm saying YES.
(Us in 95 years, still on our honeymoon.)
