Your Extreme Ironing Nature

Your passion for extremes has always given me a sense of excitement and this new found energy.  I got caught up in your adventurous nature, that dark curly hair, and those sparkly eyes. 

I never understood: why your ironing basket was always empty, why you had those strange contraptions hooked on to your ironing board, and why you always took so much care of that ironing board.  

I began to question our love, for you would sneak away and then return unkempt and exhausted. What were you doing? Had you found someone else to touch and tingle?

Then, one day out of the blue, you took me into your world and showed me your soul. You showed me: how much you love to go on adventures, how to conduct extreme ironing in exotic locations, why adventures with two is better than adventures with one, and why power points never seem close when you are so far away.

We continue to embrace your ironing board until this day –

                          There are photographs on our walls of that ironing board, you and me.
