Well! What a welcome surprise seeing Sue’s post, The Wife’s Turn! It appears many agree, as yesterday was the highest read weekend day yet. All those in favor of Sue doing at least a weekend post (even at my peril) give me an Aye!
We had to laugh when Washington Post author, Paul Schwartzman, texted me asking if Sue was referring to the “watching porn and smoking cigars in our underwear” in her post. I texted back “It now defines me”. For those who are wondering what I’m talking about, just follow the link to Paul’s article A Fathers Vigil (12/5/2010).
And, yes, I wished Sue a Happy Valentine’s Day. She deserves a happy day. I hope I do, in small ways, make Valentine’s last throughout the year. I try, although sometimes half-assed. My feeling is, half is better than none. I’m just a big box a chocolate all year… irresistible, but something that should be avoided. 🙂 Best to take me in small doses. A living, breathing dopamine.
So, with Sue’s post, many will now see what draws me to her. Strength. Intelligence. Beauty. Wit (yes, it’s true). Devotion. I’m not sure what it is that keeps her interested in me. I try not to think about it for too long because it scares me that I might discover that she just pities my (half) ass.
Not sure why I’m cussing like a sailor today. I’ll clean it up. Hope I’m not making a bum of myself. Well, um, at least not more than usual. Did I mention I’m irresistible? Okay, let’s just leave it that I’m tolerable.
HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY, SUE!
