Words for my Significant Other

So it looks like "Words from a Significant Other" really is the story of our lives. 

Mark Adamo, you say and do the most stupid things. I adore you more and more every day for it.

Thank you for making me your wife. You are my forever significant other.

You know those Apocalypse movies? Where everything is on fire and burning up? That’s how I feel a world run by the Bui’s would look like.”- Mark Adamo, significant other.

I hate everything about what is going on right now, including your behavior.”- Mark Adamo, significant other, responding to a much warranted danceparty to Beyonce’s halftime show. 


Gone Girl.

"So this book Gone Girl. It’s about a girl from the big city who moves to Missouri for love and to get married. It’s pretty much written in your voice because all she does is complain about how horrible small town living is. I mean it’s drawing a lot of parallels.  She ends up going missing, presumed dead, and her husband becomes the main person of interest." -Mark Adamo, significant other.


Sibling Rivalry

Brother Bui: Hey Isabelle, which one of your sisters do you love the most?
