Growing up, my brother and I always managed to escalate to Infinity… We’d be arguing about the-controversy-of-the-moment and he’d throw in a “yeah…well I _____ MORE!”
I’d one up with a “MOST!”
He’d counter with “PLUS INFINITYYYY!”
Now every so often, a “PLUS ONE TO EVERYTHING YOU SAY!” would be interjected…but whether it proceeded or followed the “plus infinity” declaration, inevitably one of us would say…
“You can’t ADD one to infinity!!! I WIN!”
So “I N F I N I T Y” seems to come out the victor in all cases, though “plus one to everything you say” is a close second in awesomeness.
With my hunnie, it seems we get into the same situation.
“I love you.”
“I love you more.”
“I love you most.”
“SHOTGUN INFINITY! PLUS INFINITY! I WIIiiIiiNNN!”
It’s outrageously mature, I know, and remarkably funny (it is NOT a problem I complain about!) Every so often I’ll say “MOST!” and he’ll say “okay,” dismissively, to suggest he adores me a great deal more than that but he’s just letting me win. And since he’s the Love of my Life, it lights me up (even though I’m secretly raising MY “love you” to the power of infinity in my mind. 😉 )
