What aura? - Elf M. Sternberg
What aura?
Omaha and I had the pleasure of riding in to work together earlier this week, and after we'd reached downtown, Omaha got off at the Seattle Art Museum. My stop was two blocks up at Pike Place Market. After she'd gotten off, a man who'd been sharing the rear of the bus with us said, "How long you two been married?"

"Oh, about nineteen years."

"Yeah, I figured it was something like that. You two got that aura."

Unfortunately, we reached our stop and I was precoccupied with putting way the laptop, which is a sudo command. I didn't have time to ask what he meant.

Current Mood: amused amused

sleep.sh is in my sudoers file for just that reason - reduces time to putting away the laptop.

Aura=love, patience, compassion, deference, humor. :-)I noticed it when I was around you both 15 years ago.

You can't hide love, Elf. Not from anybody that has eyes to see. Learned that one a long time ago. *snorts* but then again, by then y'all were closing on your tenth....

People who have a good fit begin to have that hive mind sort of thing. People notice that. It's the air of comfort and ability to interwork with someone else that begets the "aura".

My wife and I started to get the same sort of comments after a few years.
