Bruce, I must be doing something wrong. I don't seem to be able to plan my husband's day. You think I should start?
My wife does not demand much but knows that a good kick in my rear sometimes is needed. So I may resent it for a little while, I know that it is for my own good. Especially since I've been ill and have not PUSHED myself. We have a strong relationship that most others would not understand I think. (Almost as strong as Sereno and me?)
Though I DO wonder about letting her pick out our evening movies. Tonight: Mrs. Doubtfire. Lots of "chick flicks". I can and do enjoy some of the lines. She likes the "chick flicks" and I do watch the movies and note some good lines. I DO remind myself with a chuckle of when Dolly Parton was talking in "Steel Magnolias".
To the effect of: "Somedays my husband is so confused he does't know whether do scratch his watch or wind his ass."
Next week: Sand Pebbles with Steve McQueen and then some John Wayne.
See? I do pay attention.... sometimes.
