One of the things I love most about my husband

He is good at remembering numbers.

He can tell you whether a box of cereal is more or less than it used to be, which completely eludes me unless the price has, like, quadrupled. Even I can tell that cereal should not be $12 per box.

He can also look at a metric ton of car listings on Craigslist, look up some blue book values, and within 15 minutes have developed a classification scheme in his head that allows him to look at any given car listing from that point forward and know instantly where it lies on the spectrum from fabulous deal to total ripoff.

If anything ever happens to this man, I will have to continue driving the same car for the rest of my life, so I hope I like the one we get this time.

    That is an amazing skill! Wow. My hubby is like that with spatial situations – he can figure out what will fit and what won’t and how to pack the back of a car to its maximum capacity when I wouldn’t have even thought we could fit all that stuff. He does those puzzles where you have to figure out what pattern will be on the far side of a cube and all of that. I have absolutely *no* spatial sense. It amazes me every time.

    I’m good at remembering birthdays. Not sure if it will ever help me to get a grand successful job, but it’s my special talent. I have a friend who I call the “human calculator.” He sounds just like your hubby. People who can just multiply huge-ass numbers in the head just simply amaze me. I’m jealous.
