Chewing Loudly

We have a disagreement in our household that apart from Divine intervention, will never go away.


I will let you try to guess which person in our marriage is guilty of it and which person is irritated by chewing loudly.

At least a few times a week, there is an interaction that goes like this:

(Noise caused by someone chewing)
“Do you have to chew so loudly?”
“It’s really not that loud.”
“Are you kidding me? It sounds like you are trying to eat a sponge by sucking it off the top of your mouth. Grrrrrrrr…”

This disagreement will be turning 19 years old this summer when we celebrate our wedding anniversary.

No, we are not in need of a marriage intervention and yes, we love each other immensely. In spite of our love, we still have an ongoing disagreement about chewing loudly.

Which is one reason I am excited about the sermon on Sunday. Pastor Dave will share continue our sermon series, Exiles-Between Two Worlds from 1 Peter 3:8-12 entitled, “The way forward in relationships.”

Hopefully, Leigh-Ann will listen so I don’t have to keep worrying about how loudly I’m chewing :).

Now it’s time to head home for dinner…I need your prayers…lol.
