You Know You Are Dating a Russian Woman When...

You know you are dating a Russian woman when........... 

Your monthly purchases of sour cream exceed your yearly purchases
of fast food.

When hearing the shower running has the same affect as Viagra.

When you've eaten more dill than pepper that month.

When you get waken up at 6:00 am because she had an itch that
needed scratching

When buying an $11 toaster 267 models are taken out of the box and
examined, the warranties compared, the electrical cords are measured,
and the 3 finalists are plugged in to see how high the toast pops up.

Thankfully (?) I usually handle the last one, but there's always the matter of color, finish and "final review" before purchasing.  :nod:

Occasionally hearing the sound of spitting as we might knock on wood (i.e. for good luck/not to jinx)
No empty bottles left on tables (this one has mostly gone away with time)
Debates on drinking something cold in the winter (as it "might get you sick") - science eventually won out on this one over time.  :thumbsup:
Your clothes being "picked at" and straightened before going out the door.  (still)
Debates and sometimes strong opinions when you go to buy new (mens) shoes.
Warm hugs and kisses every day.  :thumbsup:

PS - congrats on the marriage, Bill!  (yeah, it's been a while since I've been on.. )

Ha, more for the list - some are seeming to kick in now that her position is secured. :)

Indoor and outdoor clothes. (we're still fighting that little battle but it is not such an easy one for me to win given that my usual version of indoor clothes is no clothes and along with a wife I am gaining a teenage boy in the household).

Anything past it's 'best by date' becomes poisonous. Given that, due to the upsets of the past year I have been away for most of the past 12 months that means most of my collection of sauces and other goodies from the U.K is now inedible.

Sex is for health and should, therefore, take place very often. I'm not fighting that, but the knock-on effect is that one needs to be fitter overall.

When one goes to the store (together) to buy butter and walk out after spending $200
What is worse than not being able to get what you don't even want?

 :laugh:  Exactly!

I have bottles of ibuprofen and other pain medications that were tossed,
just because I bought too big of a bottle from Walmart or some such place.
I don't have enough aches and pains to need that many tablets before the
due date. Explaining that they build in a very comfortable margin of error
falls on deaf ears.
