I was listening to This American Life on NPR on the way home from work yesterday and heard this lovely story that I wanted to share a quote from today. I have searched far and wide but cannot seem to find the name of the story or the author or anything really to give proper credit. But I will still share it with you as I remember it, and if anyone can tell me where it came from, that would be wonderful.

He is talking about how he came to be married. "I didn't believe in the idea of marriage. And I still don't. But I believe in her. And I have given up on the idea of being right."

And THAT is what love is.


  1. I know this one!! It's Mike Birbiglia from episode 379: Return to the Scene of the Crime. The story is called D-U-Why? Linky:

    Yes, I know this because I have every podcast for several years on my computer and yes, I listen to the ones I like over and over and I LOVE this one!

  2. Thanks Heather! I had only heard the end of it, so I'm glad to have now heard it in its entirety. Very good. :)
