... practice wife...!
Too funny!!! I now have a new term for the ex-husband. He was my practice husband.
haha, I use it all the time, only makes since I mean it's all practice until you get it right I suppose?!
Yep... or in my case until you simply quit 'practicing,' dating, or otherwise trying to change it and resign yourself to being single for the rest of your life. :-(
I use the same theory about my teenage driving record... 11 accidents from age 16 to 19 (or 20). My final accident was a rollover in my mom's blazer... flipped the dang thing over the hood. The first 10 were just practice, couldn't get it right... when I finally totalled one I could quit. I haven't had even so much as a fender bender since and I'm now 37. Suprisingly, my parents let me live... and continue driving. BUT, they should've had a clue when I dumped myself and my ATC 3 wheeler upside down in the stinging nettle EVERY SINGLE YEAR during hunting season as a kid. :-)
